Our current Mainstage show follows the excitement, creativity and drama backstage at a late night talk show. What are the top 5 list of reasons to see their latest production?
- Um, it’s a ColdTowne Mainstage.
The Mainstage slots (7 and 8:30 Saturdays) at ColdTowne are tightly curated – they take the biggest and best ideas from our stable of performers and put them through intense rehearsal and production process to make sure they are the best comedy you will see for $10/BYOB/free parking, BAYBEEE. (Yes, the parking/BYOB thing is always true, but it’s an extra relief on a Saturday night.)
I KNOW, we are bummed too! We love the comedy-behind-the-comedy format of shows like 30 Rock and the Larry Sanders Show. That’s why we made One Hour Til Air! Late night host Katie Stone navigates the big personalities of performers, varied skills of her crew of writers, and personal feelings of her friends on the crew, much like a Liz-Lemon-meets-Larry-Sanders type.
- There should really be more women in Late Night, ya know?
This show isn’t just for those who are actively interested in women’s equality, but also, shouldn’t you be? We imagine a world where there’s a nightly talk show hosted by a woman, and no one even questions it. She just gets to, um, perform comedy? Radical. Truly radical.
- Live. Austin. Musicians.
We live in the Live Music Capital, and yet seldom do music and comedy collide! Whether musician-improvisers like Arielle LaGuette, or local favorite singer-songwriters like Sam Ehrnstein and Daisy O’Connor, One Hour Til Air has invited fantastic musicians to perform live every week.
- This freakin’ cast, man.
If you’re not a local comedy NUT like us, you may not recognize the names of our cast members, but you may recognize their projects. Our performers are staples on Austin favorites like Fuck This Week, Naughty Bits, and the Iden B Payne Award Nominated ColdTowne Mainstage Latinauts. Director Chris McKeever has over a decade of improv experience, and ColdTowne’s own Artistic Director Will Cleveland serves as Katie’s eccentric boss to round out this fantastic crew.
One Hour Til Air’s final show is Oct 14 at 8:30 PM. Don’t miss out on this fantastic show!
