Some big festival news for you this day after Super Bowl. South by Southwest (aka SXSW) has just announced the lineup for it’s comedy podcasts this year.
Last year their podcasts were amazingly well received so there was no doubt this year they’d return bigger and better. We heard rumblings about who was going to appear this year and one of those names is not on this list so let’s start the speculation that more will be added.
Here’s the podcast list which SXSW announced today:
WTF with Marc Maron
Doug Loves Movies with Doug Benson
Comedy Bang Bang with Scott Aukerman
You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
The Smartest Man In The World with Greg Proops
Sklarbro Country with Jason and Randy Sklar
Who Charted? with Howard Kremer and Kulap Vilaysack
Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show
SXSW has also expanded it’s comedy programming, adding two additional nights, two new venues, and comedy-focused panels during the Interactive Conference. Though all the showcases have yet to be announced, we can let you know that we are bringing The Laugh Button Live! to SXSW this year. That’s right, Wednesday night March 14th at Esther’s Follies is where we’ll have our show and it’s shaping up to be an amazing night of comedy.
We’re also looking for people to sponsor the night and hand give us copious amounts of money. If you are a company that wants to do such a thing and make an awesome night even better, you should email Matt [email protected] tell him you want to sponsor the night and send us some cash!
We promise we’ll put it to good use. After all we are offering a sponsorship package in which we help convince an intern to tattoo your company’s logo on their forehead and run around the festival all week long.
