5 Lines Scenes: Announcing the Moontower Comedy Festival

What happens when a bunch of powerhouse producers all get together to put on one massive event?

What happens when you get over 10 venues and a couple of performances all happening under one umbrella?

What happens when an entire city focuses up and puts on a humongous week of comedy?

You get Austin’s first annual Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival taking place the last week of April. We’ll post more details as they become available but for now we know that the people behind Cap City, Paramount, The New Movement and Hell Yes Fest1 are all involved.

5 Line Scenes: The Daily Affirmation Warmup

This is not a new video by means, as it went viral way back in 2009ish, but the core of this child’s message is pretty dang relevant and we think it would make for a ridiculously delightful warmup exercise.

Stand in a circle1, taking turns saying all of the things you like. Be sure and mention some positive things about the people you’re about to play with on stage. Mention something about pajamas.

Now you’re warmed up, feeling fun and you got to stand on a sink for minute or so2.

We’ll let you get the dirt on how it works and for those who like to click and watch things, check out the video from Funny Bones below. When you’re finished up, head over Pepsi Refresh Project and vote1 for Funny Bones!
