    The Laugh Button presents SideOneDummy Storytellers (photos)

    On Friday night, we were fortunate enough to host the first East Coast edition of SideOneDummy Storytellers. A show that LA punk rock label SideOneDummy puts on monthly at its offices. The premise is simple, label co-owner and comedian Joe Sib hosts some comics and a musical guest to come on and tell a story about a topic/theme each night. On our night in the Vintage Lounge at the Gotham Comedy Club, Sib asked the performers, “what band changed your life?” Leaving guests, Jesse Malin, Greg Behrendt, Janeane Garofalo, and Kyle Kinane to tell us their story about music and bands. The answers ranged from bands like The Ramones to Michael Jackson. Hell, even Ray Parker Jr’s “Ghostbusters” theme song hilariously reared its head. Read More

The last few years we’ve teamed up with our friends at Gotham Comedy Club to bring some of the best in comedy to Austin’s premier South by Southwest (SXSW) festival.

    We’d be wrong if we didn’t mention our friends that helped us put the evening together. Joining us are Jakprints, Blue Microphones, SXSW Comedy, The Syndicate, and The Laugh Network.

    So join us on Tuesday, March 11th at Esther’s Follies in Austin for two shows back to back at 8 and 10pm. The show is free to any SXSW badge or wristband holder. Read More
