Pendulum Presents: Class War Takes ColdTowne’s Main Stage
Sketch comedy for the 99%
Austin, TX: After a successful run of their cult-themed sketch show, Pendulum Presents: The Ascendant, Pendulum, Austin longest-running sketch comedy team, brings a new thematic show, Pendulum Presents: Class War to the ColdTowne Theater mainstage. Frustrated with the ills of modern day capitalism, Pendulum wrote a sketch comedy show for the 99%. In an effort to put their money where their loud and opinionated mouths are, Pendulum will be donating 20% of the proceeds from ticket sales to the Workers Defense Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering low-income and immigrant workers through education, organizing, direct services, and strategic partnerships.
With Pendulum Presents: Class War, Pendulum and ColdTowne Theater are creating high quality sketch comedy that skewers the rich in Pendulum’s uniquely dark and absurd voice. As the economic disparity in the United States continues to increase, Pendulum Presents: Class War aims to shed light on the frustrations of the working class while providing a space to laugh at the absurdities of capitalism. Pendulum Presents: Class War includes sketches about Elizabeth Holmes, multi-level marketing schemes, billionaires, and healthcare.
Pendulum Presents: Class War, features some of Austin’s most talented comedy writers and performers including Minda Wei of Prayer Circle and Y’all We Asian (ColdTowne Theater), Emma Holder of Stool Pigeon and Three on a Match (ColdTowne Theater), Dylan Garsee of Friends for Now (ColdTowne Theater), Kyle Romero of Stool Pigeon, and Nicole Russell of Movie Riot (ColdTowne Theater).
Comprised of experienced performers and writers, Pendulum has been performing a monthly sketch show at ColdTowne since 2015. Pendulum has performed in the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, Austin Sketch Fest, Dallas Comedy Fest and Trill Fest and has been recognized by their peers as ColdTowne’s Best Sketch Team three years running.
