Our first day on the ground in Austin and the week is looking pretty insane! After looking at the schedule of events prepped for the week and getting our badges and bearings, we hit up some of the Stag Comedy at the Next Day stage in the Austin Convention Center.
We headed to Esther’s Follies which serves as ground zero for the night’s event which was a double-helping of Funny or Die’s The Super Serious Show which was hosted by T.J. Miller as he brought on a total cavalcade of comedy featuring Kyle Kinane, John Hodgman, Kumail Nanjiani, Jonah Ray, Aparna Nancherla, Jerrod Carmichael, Reggie Watts, Gabe Liedman and Jenny Slate perhaps one of the strongest lineups of the week. Then, in the middle of the madness, Miller brought out Billy Eichner who intro’d a clip from his FUSE TV show Billy On The Street. If you aren’t watching this show, well then you are missing out one one of the most spastically hilarious shows on TV.
There’s pretty much no way that this show wouldn’t be one of the biggest of the weeks. Stellar.
The folks at Huffington Post comedy shot this behind the footage with John Hodgman before the Super Serious Show.
