Back in June, the first round of comics for the 10th annual Moontower Comedy Festival were announced. And now, the Austin festival has announced the latest additions.
The new headliners include Tom Segura and his wife Christina Pasitzky’s popular podcast Your Mom’s House, Impractical Joker’s Sal Vulcano, local podcast The Dudley and Bob with Matt Sideshow, and Girls Gotta Eat, the top comedy podcast on dating, sex, and relationships hosted by Rayna Greenberg and Ashley Hesseltin.
Additional comics and events include sketch troupe Please Don’t Destroy featuring Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy, The Session, a musical journey where listeners hear host Christian James Hand and special guest and superfan Tom Segura break down some of the greatest songs ever, the world premiere of Joy Ride, a documentary that captures frenemies and veteran comedians Dana Gould and Bobcat Goldthwait as they carefully navigate highways and their decades-old contentious friendship, Alex Edelman’s one man show, Just For Us, which centers on his experience as a Jewish man attending a meeting of neo-Nazis in New York. Plus Dulcé Sloan, Michael Kosta, Trevor Wallace, Anna Drezen, and Robin Tran were also added to the lineup.
Plus a slew of new podcasts that include That’s Messed Up, where comedians and amateur detectives Liza Treyger and Kara Klenk break down episodes of Law & Order: SVU and deep dive into the true crimes they’re based on, as well as Matt Braunger’s This Might Help and Disgusting Hawk, hosted by Jessica Kirson.
And for anyone looking to go head-to-head with their favorite comic in competition, Wrists of Fury is an interactive foosball tournament that pits comedians versus fans and culminates with the winner playing World Champion foosball player and comedian Kelsey Cook, who will provide game analysis alongside color commentators The Sklar Brothers.
