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 interesting genres or themes, actors trying on new characters or performers who have never ever played together before who just wanna jump in and see what happens! But there could also be improvisers tied up in rope, 50 performers onstage, blindfolded actors, improvising dogs, or 1000 other things. Big! Little! Crazy! New! Boring! Stupid! Weird! Fun! Gross! And you get what you pay for…

THE FREE FRINGE IS FREE.  FOREVER.

May 21 Line Up:

The Project – Chuy and his son try not to kill each other.

Lucrative Ghost – 2 Musicians Destroy the 4th wall and bring you into the world of their off the charts imaginations, by enabling you to utilize your own. Jacob Garcia

Villain’s Day Off – You decide who the villains are – a gang of bullies, robbers, etc and we play out what they do when they are not being villains. Kareem Badr, Andreas Fabis, Courtney Hopkin, Way Spurr-Chen and Jessica Arjet.
