For six years, ColdTowne Theatre has produced, booked, and organized Austin Sketch Fest. The seven-night event celebrates and showcases scripted comedy from the Austin and the surrounding areas.

Some of Austin’s most well known comedians, like former Jazz Cigarette hosts Joe Hafkey and Mac Blake, will lend their talents to the productions, as well as local groups like Master Pancake Theater, Bad Example, and STAG Comedy. Other acts from New York, Chicago, and other comedy hubs have traveled to Austin for the event.

The curtain opens on the fest at 8:30 p.m. on Monday and at the same time on each weekday. The weekend’s shows begin at 7 p.m. ColdTowne will host all shows through Wednesday night until Spider House Ballroom takes over on Thursday.

All-Fest Passes for all 14 shows at both venues cost $60, while tickets for individual events range from $5-$15. One free event will take place on Friday night at Spider House Ballroom.
