The Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival features a mix of stand-up, sketch comedy, improv and musical comedy acts. Austin's homegrown comedy fest continues its tradition of crafting a unique lineup of stand-up veterans and rising stars along with festival favorites and local comedians.

This year's headliners include Martin Short, David Cross, Maria Bamford, Kevin Smith, Leslie Jones, Colin Jost, Maya Rudolph, Janeane Garafalo, along with many other great comedians.

Although the activity is centered around the Paramount Theatre, most of the shows are hosted at venues around town, including Cap City Comedy Club, The Velv Comedy Lounge, Googlg Fiber, The Parish, and more. For a full lineup and schedule of events, check out the Moontower website.
