Bad Example (ATX)
Bad Example is The New Movement Austin’s premiere sketch troupe. With a brand new show every month (and sometimes every week), featuring an all-star cast of sketch writers and performers, Bad Example delivers one of the hardest-hitting shows in town. Bad Example is Cody Cartagena, Ariel Greenspoon, Roxy Castillo, Micheal Foulk, Vanessa Gonzalez, and Jeff Whitaker.
Colleen Allerton and Lauren LaBorde met in a sketch writing class at The New Movement. They are opposites — Colleen is a noisy extrovert with adult ADHD; Lauren has a writerly brain and a dour countenance — but through their love of messy reality TV heroines, excessive white wine consumption, and varying degrees of feminism they have forged a bond on and off stage that is “real fun to watch” (said some guy once). Together they created the viral video “My Purse, My Choice,” which received over 400,000 views and was featured on MSNBC, The Today Show, CNN, The New York Times and your mother’s Facebook page. They also do improv together at TNM.
Zoology Club (ATX)
Zoology Club is the code name of a US government research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans. In 2013, humorous videos of Zoology Club, cryptonym ZKUltra, began surfacing shortly, followed by live sketch and improv experimentations. The two program engineers, Kelsey Rodgers and Stephanie Pace, continue to practice comedy in the United States with impunity.
This show is presented by Blackout!
