The Free Fringe

Buy Tickets

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the Austin improv scene is bursting with creativity.

There are hundreds of performers, and every single one of them is prone to saying things like “Wouldn’t it be crazy if…?” or “I just had the most insane idea.”

This is where those dreams go, not to die, but to live gloriously on the stage for one night only.

Every week will be dramatically different.

There could be shows with improvisers tied up in rope, 50 performers onstage, blindfolded actors, improvising dogs, or 1000 other things.

THE FREE FRINGE IS FREE.  FOREVER.

Reserve your tickets in advance to guarantee yourself a spot.

UPCOMING INSANITY:

The Best of the Fringe!

As part of the Hideout’s Fifteenth Anniversary, we’re presenting the Best of the Fringe! That’s FOUR shows that people have clamored to bring back for one night only.

So let’s do it!

The Floor is Lava

Improvisers cannot step on the floor in scenes, because THE FLOOR IS MADE OF LAVA. WHAT?!? A stupid, dangerous, unforgettable show.

Evil Peter Rogers

Peter Rogers is like the nicest guy in the universe. Except in this show. Improvisers put words in Peter’s mouth, and he has to justify the terrible things he just said.

Tech Nightmare

This show is a damned classic for a reason. The tech booth calls all the shots, and puts the improvisers through merry HELL.

Lady Trek

Finally, closing out the night Lady Trek- an all female version of Start Trekkin’, the Hideout’s hit improvised take on Start Trekkin’.

BOOM. What a night. Let’s do this.
