++Wed 8/31: Hot Property and Mac Blake stand-up at Out of Bounds.
On September Eve, sketch-prov group Hot Property help get the Out of Bounds Festival started at the Hideout Theater. Hot Props made a giant list of all their sketches, picked the best ones, refined them, and also shot a video. So BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU that this will be the best Hot Property show yet. Later that same evening, Mac will be doing some stand-up as part of a string Austin comedy showcase at the Velveeta Room.
Hot Property 8PM w/ Rachel and Dave, and Spirit Desire @ The Hideout Theater. Tickets.
Mac Blake stand-up 9PM @ The Velveeta Room. Tickets at the door, cash only.
++Sat 9/3: Stag Comedy and Mac Blake stand-up at Out of Bounds
Stag Comedy makes their Out of Bounds debut performing a best-of set from their last hit Drafthouse show, The Sweaty Meringue. Stag will be opening for the hit Canadian sketch group, 2-man No-show. The OOB organizers must love making Mac sprint across downtown, because after Stag wraps up, Mac will be performing at and hosting another solid block of stand-up at the Velv, this time featuring mostly out of town acts.
Stag Comedy 9:30PM w/ 2-man No-show @ The Hideout Theater. Tickets.
Mac Blake stand-up 11PM @ The Velveeta Room. Tickets at the door, cash only.

++Mon 9/26: First-ever Mascot Wedding Improv Performance
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Come see Ximena Estrada, Mac Blake, and David Jara try their hands at making shit up on stage. Need more motivation than seeing these three fill a room with sweat? It’s also a pay what you want night.
