The Free Fringe

A rollicking rollercoaster of an improv show where anything can happen!

A rollicking rollercoaster of an improv show where anything can happen!

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.

This weeks LineUp:

2/13 –
Relationship Relics RoadshowIt’s like Antiques Roadshow, but each item is from a failed relationship. There’s a short interview about the item from their failed relationship. As soon as one of the other players is inspired, they wipe the stage and begin a scene inspired by the story.
