Hey 2012ers! We did it, we made it to the New Year. Why not start the year off with a little culture? Am I suggesting museums or ballet? Of course not. I’m not a madman. I’m talking DUMB culture.

++Hot Property at Coldtowne Theater
Hot Property is sketch-prov. That means we sort of write it out but not really and we sort of make it up as we go but not really. Before you judge us as just a lazy sketch comedy group, we need to catch our breath first. And maybe lay down. Hot Property is Mac and David from MW plus Nick and Lance of Midnight Society. Your Terrific Neighbors are your sketch comedy headliners.
Mar 10, 10PM @ Coldtowne Theater
++Hashtag Austin Comedy (Mac does some stand-up)

Tickets aren’t available yet, but when they are, expect a post here, on our Facebook page, and also probably on David’s twitter. The dude tweets.
