Badass Comedy Shows & Training
7:30p, The Prytania Theater: The Bounceback + Sunken City
Breaking up is hard to do. Desperate and lonely, when Stan (Michael Stahl-David) learns
that his ex, Cathy (Ashley Bell), will be in Austin for the weekend, he hops on the first
flight to the Lone Star State in hopes of “accidentally” running into her there. Little does
he know that another breakup crisis will greet him in Austin between his friends Jeff
(Zach Cregger) and Kara (Sara Paxton). Cavorting through Austin’s honkytonks,
nightclubs, and a cutthroat air-sex competition, the two former couples find bouncing
back from heartache to be unexpectedly complicated. An outrageous but heartfelt
comedy, THE BOUNCEBACK is Bryan Poyser’s follow-up to the hit Sundance film,
LOVERS OF HATE.
Also playing is the premiere episode of the locally produced webseries Sunken City.
Sunken City is a comedy web series made in New Orleans. Inspired by the city’s one-of-a-kind characters, the show unlocks a hidden world of gutter punks, old money aristocrats, wide-eyed transplants, pirate people and countless other schemers and dreamers – all fighting to leave their mark on city as scattered as they are.
You know Todd Barry. Maybe it’s through Dr. Katz, Aqua Teen Hunger Force or his recent Comedy Central special. It could be one of his four albums or one of his many appearances in various film projects. Todd sold out two shows at The New Movement in 2012 very quickly – advance tickets highly recommended.
