Gender Fluids Live!

Gender Fluids Live!

If you like kinky sex, weird gender stuff, FREE DRINKS, irreverent jokes, and/or hailing Satan then this show is for you! 
Join us for a live show and recording of the Gender Fluids podcast (recently nominated for Best Local Podcast in the Austin Chronicle's Best of Austin Awards). 

Based out of Austin, Texas, Gender Fluids takes an explicit and unapologetic look into the rarely explored depths of sex and gender. Through intensely candid conversations, comedians Austin Smartt & Arielle Norman dive into everything from birthing fetishes to what misgendering dogs says about our society. No subject is too far out, or too sensitive to be discussed. Come out to the show to experience all of the deliciously depraved anti think-piece commentary on sex and gender you could ever desire! 

Not for the faint of heart, weak of mind, or lame of soul.

In addition to our normal weekly segments "What the Fuck Does That Mean?" & Fetish of the Week we have some special segments prepared for the live show. One segment is sex toy fueled, one is interactive, and one is probably illegal so we aren't going into detail about it here!

This show is free but if you'd like to support the podcast and venue there will be a donation bucket at the door. But, if you're cheap asses like the hosts of Gender Fluids, please feel free to walk in without donating. We understand.

Six Shooter

Six Shooter

“A free stand-up comedy show at Barrel O’ Fun? Yuuuuuuuup. Six Shooter brings to the stage six of Austin’s funniest stand-up comedians. Hosted by freestyle country western legends Knuck Deep (played by Aaron Brooks & Mac Blake). It’s a guaranteed good time. 

Your October line-up:
-Headliner: Nick Saverino (Low & Inside, 3rd place - 2018 Funniest Person in Austin contest)
-Andrew Murphy (The Joke of Painting)
-Arielle Isaac Norman (Moontower Comedy Festival, Gender Fluids Podcast)
-Danny Goodwin (Gross Lonely Boys podcast)
-Dusti Rhodes (HOU)
-Joshua Stokes (HOU)

Six Shooter is the second Wednesday of every month. So try to keep those dates open, huh?

About your hosts:
Originally from St. Louis, AARON BROOKS brought his freewheeling storytelling style to Austin. His low-key, loose cannon stage persona has made him one of the city's most beloved comedians. At least by other comedians.

MAC BLAKE is a past winner of the Funniest Person in Austin contest. His albums Bird Drugs and Live at ColdTowne are available at finer digital retailers.”

Stoned v Drunk v Sober

Stoned v Drunk v Sober

I’ll be on team sober for the first time.

“Stoned vs Drunk vs Sober is a stand up comedy competition featuring three teams of comics that try to answer the question, "What if comics got stoned, drunk, or sober, then gave it their best as they perform on the edge?"


Laugh Button rated SvDvS as, "One of the 9 most unique comedy shows in the nation."




$10 online/$12 at the door

Bar onsite from 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.

---------------------------------------------------

This show is presented by talent from Fallout Theater, the newest destination for Austin Comedy and the premiere destination for Alternative Improv/Sketch/Stand- Up. Come early to chill in our downtown lobby lounge and meet the best comedians around. Register for our sketch & improv classes year-round at FalloutComedy.com.

Thick Skin at Comedy Works (Denver, CO)

"Comedy at its Rawest

Enjoy comedy the way it's intended. No holds barred, no punches pulled, and no f**ks given. Watch seasoned pros and future stars battle each other for supremacy. Good sets will be awarded, bad sets will be punished. Feelings will be hurt, fun will be had.

Hosted by Greg Baumhauer and Mike Stanley. Baumhauer named the “Dark Prince of Colfax” by the Westword is who is known for running the raucous and raunchy Squire Lounge Comedy Night, dubbed the "meanest mic in America", helped cultivate the careers of some of Denver's most accomplished comedians, and ended others before they started. A fifteen year veteran in the Denver comedy scene, and winner of the 2007 New Talent Contest, Greg returns to doing what he does best-making fun of new comedians.

Greg's co-host Mike Stanley the host of Food Network's Food: Fact Or Fiction, was named "Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian" in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and "Best Detroit Comedian" by HOUR Magazine. Another fifteen year comedy veteran, Mike tours internationally and has performed at several festivals including the Oddball Comedy Festival, and TBS Just For Laughs Festival. Insightful, crass and just plain hilarious, Mike has recently moved to the Mile High City and we couldn't be happier to have him.

Comedy is at its best when it isn't scared to tell the truth. So let's stop pretending that the world is nice and fair, and help us celebrate each other by pointing out our differences and similarities that make us all amazing and utterly stupid.

Thick Skin may not be for everybody, but everyone should see it!
