Waffles and Improv!

Waffles and Improv!

Any other year, this is how we would describe WaffleFest:

“WaffleFest is an improv comedy festival featuring the best of the Austin Improv scene, with ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT waffles at every show!”

But this is 2020, and we do what we can! The theater is still super closed, and the pandemic is still super happening, so we’ve had to come up with a new plan.

Here’s the deal:

1) The 2020 WaffleFest will take place on one day, Saturday Nov.14th, from 2pm – 8pm.

2) Since we can’t make you delicious waffles ourselves, our resident chef, Chef Prado, will be teaching you how to make waffles in the very first hour.

3) We’ll be doubling down on the waffle theme, and most if not all the shows will be related to waffles in some manner.

4) The whole festival will be streamed live on Facebook!

We all need a break from this stressful year, so we hope you’ll join us and help keep this community vibrant and alive. <3
