Attention Friends of Austin Comedy!
Coldtowne Theater, the theater who has brought Austin Paul F Tompkins, Comedy Death Ray, Doug Loves Movies, Dave Holmes and the Friday 40, and The Upright Citizens Brigade (to name just a few) needs your help.
"Our community of artists, comedians and nerd do wells is bursting at the seams. We’ve grown from a humble 900 square foot room in the back of I Luv Video with three shows a week to over 15 shows a week, 130 active performers, 10 faculty members, 100 students, and hundreds more graduates from our improv and sketch comedy programs. We need more space.
We CANNOT make the move without your help. There’s no looking back now. Renovations alone will cost in excess of $25,000 (you’d be surprised how expensive a little thing like operating legally costs). There are ways you can help. Visit our kickstarter page and make a contribution. We’ll be auctioning off naming rights to literally every fixture in the building."
Every little thing helps, but what we need most is for you to spread the word.
We have big things planned for Austin and they're just going to get bigger and better provided the theater finds its new home.
Please pass this on to as many comedy fans as you can and if you can give, even better. Supporting this would really help Austin comedy grow (the theater has put a lot into the comedy community).
