The Harold is a format created by Del Close and developed in association with Charna Halpern. It is the signature form of Chicago’s iO and New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade. In the Harold, a suggestion is taken from the audience which performers use to create an improvised, interconnected universe. Characters are invented and then cross over between scenes, interacting with one another to create a continuous narrative. Beats move the story of the Harold forward and organic games inspired by major themes are played to mine information and heighten the narrative, resulting in a one-of-a-kind experience that has never been done before and will never be done again.

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.
