Hosted by Vanessa Gonzalez
Look for Vanessa's show on Comedy Central in Fall 2018!


¡ESCÁNDALO! Improvised Bilingual Spanish-English Telenovela is back from their sold out run at the Hideout Theater, bringing audiences more melodrama, more back-stabbing, and most importantly, more longing glances in this over-the-top improvised tale. (Improv)

Lucky Chaos Lion Dance reinterprets the traditional Chinese Lion Dance art form for modern storytelling. We break cultural barriers with our unique blend of puppetry, dance and silent theatre. (Sketch)

Hot Pot Comedy is an all-Asian sketch comedy group composed of some of the city's funniest Asian-Americans. The group boasts comics from multiple comedy Austin theaters as well as many different Asian ethnicities. Hot Pot Comedy performs regularly at Fallout Comedy Theater, as well as comedy festivals around the country. We are diverse AF, y'all. (Sketch)

Lucky Chaos Players performs selected skits from the popular, high-energy, 30 Skits in 60 Minutes series produc

ed and performed by Lucky Chaos Productions over the past 5 years; 30 Dates in 60 Minutes (2013), 30 Loves in 60 Minutes (2014), 30 Trips in 60 Minutes (2015), and the most recent, 30 Heroes in 60 Minutes (2018).

Sugar Water Purple (SWP) is Austin's first and only all-black male improv troupe. SWP is made up of actors, improvisers, writers, musicians and stand-up comedians, and was named Austin’s Best New Improv Troupe in 2017. Come kick it with dem boyz as they laugh in the face of soul crushing oppression. (Improv)

Adrian Villegas presents excerpts from his critically-acclaimed solo comedy, Barrio Daze. Set against a tumultuous national election, Barrio Daze is a sprawling and irreverent one-man tour through a single day in the barrio that mixes cultural humor with pointed social commentary for a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud funny portrait of Latino life in America. Adrian is the Artistic Director of the Latino Comedy Project, a multicultural, multimedia sketch comedy group known for their pitch-perfect satire. (Other)


Presented by Lucky Chaos Productions in partnership with the Austin Convention Center.
