FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WEIRD GAY VIBES
Saturdays (8:30-9:30 p.m.)
November 16 – December 21, 2019
This surreal sketch comedy show has no straight man.
Austin, Texas – October 30, 2019 – Austin’s first and longest running LGBTQ sketch comedy team, Martini Ranch,
returns with a subversive, darkly comedic show titled “Weird Gay Vibes”. The original production will run at ColdTowne Theater for six Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. – November 16 through December 21.
After performing at San Francisco Sketch Fest earlier this year, Martini Ranch took time to focus on other projects before regrouping for “Weird Gay Vibes”, which will be their fourth and final sketch revue together. The show plays with the troupe’s favorite themes, from the confusion of entirely self-taught sex education, to icons of Latinx pop culture, to the corporatization of Pride.
“Weird Gay Vibes” was written and will be performed by Laura de la Fuente, Jake Garrison, Dylan Garsee, Mase Kerwick, Javier Ungo, Stephanie Vasquez Fonseca, Luke Wallens, and Irielle Wesley. Stepping into the director’s chair is founding Martini Ranch member Katie Stone, a recent B. Iden Payne nominee for Best Comedic Directing for her work on “An Evening with Chlane”. Stone also created all promotional artwork.
“Weird Gay Vibes” is produced by Bonica Ayala, B. Iden Payne nominee for “Liz Behan: One Woman at Dusk”, and Mase Kerwick, who has produced all previous Martini Ranch revues. Technical Direction is provided by Ilan Raschkovsky.
In November 2016, Second City alum Keith Horvath created Martini Ranch to write and perform “This is (Not) the Gayest Show You’ll Ever See”. Following the conclusion of that sold-out, seven-week run in 2017, Martini Ranch has since written and performed “Queer & Now” (2017-2018), “Hidden Valley” (2018), and now “Weird Gay Vibes (2019), in addition to performing at San Francisco Sketch Fest, Out of Bounds, Austin Sketch Fest, and BettyFest.
“Weird Gay Vibes” is rated ‘G’ for Gay and is recommended for mature audiences.
