Bar provided by Party Pulse!





FAQS 

ARE THERE ID REQUIREMENTS OR AN AGE LIMIT TO ENTER YOUR EVENTS? Unless specifically stated above, Fallout Theater is all ages and BYOB. However, if the event is providing free booze (which sometimes happens), or if we have drink service provided by Party Pulse, you'll have to show a 21+ ID in order to partake. Other than that, our programming tends to be PG-13 & up, so keep that in mind. 

WHAT’S YOUR REFUND POLICY? If you buy an online ticket, you should arrive 30 min before the start of the show to guarantee getting a seat because we also sell tickets at the door and usually have a crowd waiting for no-show seats. If you don't arrive at least 10 min before the show, your seats could be given out to people on our waiting list, and if that happens, you will not be entitled to a refund as we don't offer refunds after the show has started.

HOSTED BY STEVEN FARMER

An Austin power player in the world of hosts, Steven is fearless in his approach to crowd work and driving the show to ensure the Killer Show we out on week to week.

FEATURING:

A consummate observer of human nature, Aaron has toured throughout the state of Texas smashing audiences with his razor sharp wit and elocution. He hosts the critically acclaimed Black and Tan Podcast with fellow comedian Jacob James Garcia. 

PAT SIROIS:

Pat Sirois is a comedian, rapper and podcast host living in Austin, TX. When he’s not telling jokes about work or the underlying dishonesty of Chuck E. Cheese he’s spinning tales of liars, frauds, thieves & bullshitters on his true-crime-ish podcast Lie, Cheat & Steal. He’s also one half of the comedy rap duo Vanilla Presley (the one performing this night!) He’s the confident center of a very weird Venn diagram. Prove him wrong.

ARIELLE NORMAN:

A friend of the show, Arielle describes herself as South Park brought to life as a lesbian.
She is the host and producer of the show "Off Script" at the Fallout Theatre, where the audience is encouraged to and even rewarded for heckling the comics. She is the host of podcasts, "Gender Fluids" and "Leading the Blind".

ANDRE RICKS:

Hailing from Lubbock, Andre has hit the Austin comedy scene like a banshee. Andre produces and stars in his own monthly comedy show, "The Comedy Lounge". An crowd pleaser, and a crowd worker, Andre knows how to dance in between the jokes and the present moment. Sit in the front row if you dare.

ANGELO VESCIO:

Angelo Vescio, also known by his rap moniker The Vesh, puts his own unique stamp on stand up by channeling his roots as a rap artist. A well known battle MC who has competed nationally at the legendary Scribble Jam Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio, performing in the Grindtime and No Coast battle leagues while moonlighting in comedy clubs all over the Midwest. He was recently a finalist in Rick Bronson's House of Comedy's 2015 Funniest Person with a Day Job Contest and won Battle Rapper of the Year at the 2016 Twin Cities Urban Music Awards. Angelo was also featured on an episode of the MTV International show "The Brothers Green" less…

ANDREW MURPHY:

Hailing from New York, Andrew has made quite a mark in the Austin comedy scene. With jokes pointing out the ridiculous as well as the esoteric, Andrew delivers a steady flow of professional comedy straight to your some. A numerous Funniest Person in Austin finalist, Andrew also co-hosts The Joke of Painting with Avery Moore, the fourth Monday of every month at Spider House Ballroom.

COY HOPPER:

With a style all his own, Coy has been massaging audience’s funny bone all over the State of Texas.

He has performed on the No Hippie Comedy Tour, Comedy by the Creek, and is producer of Spit Bucket. (This show).
