Passes are now on sale for Austin’s 2015 Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, taking place Sept. 1-7.
Looks like the little comedy festival that could, did. Started in 2002 by members of local improvisation group Well Hung Jury and staged over a couple of days at downtown’s Hideout Theatre, the fest has become something of a very jolly grin giant.
This year, 84 improv groups, 41 standup comics, and 16 sketch acts from around the globe (including talent from our own white-hot comedy scene) will perform in nine downtown venues over the course of seven days. ending on Labor Day. That’s more than 500 performers in 120 shows, for those of you who are counting.
An All-Festival Pass goes for $119 and includes full access to all shows (including headliners), after-parties, and area discounts.
The upgraded All-Festival Pass Plus will set you back $129, includes all the benefits of the regular pass plus an OoB Fest T-shirt and a free pack of Official 2015 OoB Trading Cards.
Tickets for individual shows are also on sale. Visit the festival’s schedule page (where you can find the complete lineup of acts and schedule of performances) to buy tickets for a specific show, or reserve a spot if you’ve purchased a pass (not all venues offer single-ticket purchase or reservations).
