￼Your favorite standup comedy show, Live at ColdTowne, is celebrating its 7th anniversary with a Lucky 7 show on 7-7-17. ColdTowne has been the shows home since birth, so we’re pretty proud to help throw this party. We talked to the show’s amazingly talented host, Carina Magyar, who is also celebrating 7 years as an Austin standup. The whole event is perfect timing.
Magyar has seen the Austin comedy scene grow almost as rapidly as the city’s population. She says Live at ColdTowne is a great show for oddballs and drop-ins. “Just last week we had Matt Ingebretson (Comedy Central) and Nick Rutherford (SNL). Every week, there’s a small but real chance that a big-time comedian will show up and do a set in an intimate venue,” Magyar says.
The anniversary is particularly special, as many Austin-based comics who’ve performed at “Live” over the years have since taken their acts to bigger stages across the U.S.
“It’s a great place for a performer to feel their material is alive, to encounter new responses to it,” Magyar said of the ColdTowne stage, which lives underneath the second floor of I Luv Video. “The audiences are always engaged because of the nature of the room and the beauty of our time slot.”
On July 7, the show will feature comics who are all 27 years of age including Austin comic, Allen Butt and singer/songwriter, Arielle LaGuette.￼￼
Celebrate the birth of our baby, Live at ColdTowne. Friday, July 7. ColdTowne Theater. 10 p.m.
