Vote for ColdTowne in Austin Chronicle’s Best of Austin 2019 poll!

ColdTowne Theater is nominated in this year’s Best of Austin poll in the comedy club/venue category. We’ve been doing this for 13 years and we’re thrilled Austin has nominated us alongside our friends at Fallout Theater and Cap City. We’re also SUPER excited for the nods our talented performers received. Here’s our voting guide, for your consideration…

Obviously, we would love for you to vote for ColdTowne in the comedy club/venue category, but more than that, we’d love for you to join us for comedy any night of the week. 

Carina Magyar AND Ky Krebs, co-hosts and producers of Live at ColdTowne are both nominated for Best Stand-Up Comic this year! Both Carina and Ky have albums out for you

We have two amazing comedy troupes nominated this year. Y’all We Asian has performed sold out main stage runs at ColdTowne and often sell out their monthly show Last Friday Night at ColdTowne. Their next show is happening October 11. 

Girls Girls Girls is also on the ballot and while we’re not GGG’s forever home (these gals can be seen all over ATX), we love having them grace the ColdTowne stage regularly with their improvised musicals complete with choreo made up on the spot. Catch them on October 18 at ColdTowne

You may know Stephanie Thoreson from Loverboy on Friday nights at 8:30, but did you know she’s also an actress? Like many of our talented performers, Stephanie’s improv skills have lead to acting opportunities. Stephanie recently starred in “Good Feels On Wheels,” a feature film making its festival rounds this year. Stephanie is currently nominated for Best Actress in the Best of Austin poll and we fully endorse this multi-talented queen!

We hope these #FYCs help! Voting closes on October 7, so be sure to fill out your Best of Austin ballot ASAP. Vote in at least 40 categories, and you’ll be entered to win a badge for SXSW Film or SXSW Music, your choice. We’d like to give a special shout out to the Austin Chronicle for supporting local businesses like ColdTowne and for their continued support of ColdTowne main stage productions and weekly house shows and to YOU for being here. Y’all really are the best.

VOTE BY OCTOBER 7

Pendulum Presents: Class War Takes ColdTowne’s Main Stage

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).
