Out of Bounds Comedy Festival: A Week Long Party

Out of Bounds Comedy festival starts today.  If you’re going you’re in for a treat.  If you’re not… I’m sorry but you should come. This is the week that we Austin improvisers wait for every year.  It’s a week of great comedy, great friends, and great workshops. It is not to be missed. Scott Hearne is doing something really cool this year with his podcast the Theft Forum. He will be broadcasting from the Hideout Theatre through out the entire festival.  So check that out if you can. As for Merlin Works shows, your faculty members are heating up the festival. I’ll post a schedule of who, what and where later in this blog.

Other than a great time it’s also a great way to meet other improvisers and comedians.  Performers come from all over the united states and sometimes Canada and other countries.  The out of towners are always so gracious and surprised at how supportive our little community is.  I’ve met many a new friend at this festival.
