The Knuckleball Now


Yes, THE KNUCKLE BALL NOW is an Improv Comedy troupe based in Austin... but first and foremost, TKN is a philosophy, an energy and a way of thinking. Its all about HAVING FUN. It's having an unwavering faith in each other, where the brain synapses are in sync, and there is a connection through chaos. They are creators of a format they call "Peak & Pop"... they get one word inspiration or "the last text you received", then its lights down... When the llights come up, the Ballers will fire through a series of scenes, perhaps even only one line long, while building up a contagious energy and a bank of characters and story ideas. Once the show is off and rolling, the scenes become longer and deeper... The edits and wipes are quick, organic, and often spin off into flashbacks or flash forwards, and "What ifs." TKN prides itself in trying to give each other a great time in the moment. The crowd is the benefactor, because there is usually enough "great time" to go around to share with every member of the house. They are constantly "looking for the game", raising the stakes, and thinking two steps ahead... No subject is off limits, therefore they try to bring a new view to topics from yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

"The Knuckleball Now… super playful, exuberant improv from some of Austin’s best improvisers. The Knuckleball Now has a reputation for creating a show where anything can and does happen. Not to be missed." -The Hideout

Computer is a high-energy four-man improv team. Big characters, fantastical leaps of logic, and an endless amount of fucking with each other are all staples of Computer's style. Computer shows take a "two steps forward, one step back" approach to callbacks, with scenes flowing into and out of each other through the use of audio edits, quick tags, and the occasional turning of one character in the subject of a sitcom.

"These guys are very tight and are incredible at exploring possibilities in their shows. There's also a hint of darkness in them which I really enjoy." - Mark Sutton, Chicago Improv Festival Artistic Director
