Client / Moontower Comedy Festival

Lighting Up the City with Laughter

Produced by the Paramount Theatre, Moontower Comedy Festival continues to bring a weekend of amazing comedy to downtown Austin each April.

The team at the Paramount saw a need to support Austin’s growing comedy scene, and in 2012 the idea for an annual comedy festival hosted at the venue became a reality. For the past five years, the Moontower Comedy Festival has been dedicated to bringing world-class comedy to the city through a variety of performances in stand-up, sketch, improv, and musical comedy by well-known performers and up-and-comers alike. The festival has also built a reputation for shining a spotlight on the wealth of hilarious Austin talent.

Moontower highlights include memorable performances from Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Tim Minchin, Bill Hader, Kids in the Hall, Patton Oswalt, Demetri Martin, Maria Bamford, John Mulaney, Hannibal Buress, Michael Che, Bridget Everett, and so many more. The festival also features an impressive lineup of live comedy podcast recordings each year, and the annual ping pong tournament pitting comedians against fans and each other with The Sklar Brothers providing color commentary is nothing short of a riot. And for those wanting to fill their nights with a sampling of the best comedians around, nothing beats the club shows, where sometimes ten different comics take the stage in an evening keeping the laughter rolling into the wee hours.
