We’re beyond excited to announce our return to SXSW for a live comedy show. 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 must say that we think 2014 is the year we’ve outdone ourselves because the one and only Jim Breuer will host the evening!
We’ve assembled what we fell is one of the best stand-up comedy rosters Austin will see. A great mix of comedy vets, emerging talent and some new names that you must keep your eye on in the months to come.
As we capped off our comedy festivities at SXSW, The Laugh Button and Gotham Comedy Club got together to produce Robert Kelly’s Nasty Show. A special one night only stand-up comedy showcase chock full of no-holds-barred uncensored comedy. Robert Kelly hosted comedians Mark Normand, Matt Braunger, Aisha Tyler, and Big Jay Oakerson. Five baller comedians being as nasty as they want to be and take on any topic they’d like. Both the 8pm and 10pm shows were incredible successes. Backstage or in the crowd, everyone had an incredible time. Don’t believe us? Here are the pictures to prove it. Also, be on the lookout for some behind-the-scenes video. Read More
