Hosting for Emma Arnold

  • The Mohawk 912 Red River Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

"America’s fiercest sweetheart is bringing her new special and two other comedy darlings to your town! Emma Arnold is loading Lauren Faber and Carly Ballerini into a van sponsored by Ladybits Toiletries ( and heading your way!

Doors at 7pm. Show at 8pm.

Equal parts outrageous and thoughtful, Emma’s standup comedy is engaging, honest, and comes from the heart. In addition to being a successful touring comedian, Emma is the cofounder and artistic director of the 208 Comedyfest, and the co-director of Comedyfort (part of the Treefort Festival), as well as a mother of three and third generation beekeeper. Her self-released comedy special, "Yes, Please", is available on her website, and her album, "Shut Up, Calvin" spent 3 weeks at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. When not touring, Emma lives in Idaho, where she keeps kids and bees with varying degrees of success.

Lauren Faber is a feral comedian who was raised in a Long Island basement by the 90’s comedy specials of Ellen Degeneres, Paula Poundstone and Elvira Kurt. (She sees the theme now.) A man on the internet recently called her a fat, communist dyke. She felt the fat thing was unfair. Lauren and her bright-eyed irony can be seen mortifying her mother at clubs, colleges, and festivals all over the country. 

Lauren has won the titles of NYC’s She-Devil and Carolina’s Funniest comic and performed with the likes of Maria Bamford, Iliza Shlesinger, Beth Stelling and lots and lots of boys. When not on stage, she manages international development research and gets annoyed by her cats, Stetson and Kennedy.

At the tender age of nine, Carly found herself in dusty overalls on the lawn of some or other wealthy CEO answering to Huckleberry, her ‘stage name.’ “Hello, Sir. Would you like to go get some popped balloon animals from that drunk clown?... No?... I understand,” she said and then tiptoed behind a tree. That drunk clown was her mom and now she’s a queer comedian. (We have not determined the ratio of nurture to nature.)

She’s also a contributing writer for Cards Against Humanity and produces Arguments and Grievances and Ladylike in Chicago. She has opened for Shane Torres and Hari Kondabolu and featured for Mary Mack and Jono Zolay and done one million festivals of note. She has a very sexy dog who sheds too much and it’s gross but she loves her anyway.
