Arielle Isaac Norman

One of Austin’s funniest fashionistas, Sampson can be seen performing almost every night of the week. She’s endlessly entertaining, full of energy, incredibly creative, and I’ve never seen her do the same set twice. A recent transplant from Houston, Austin is better off with Sampson in town, but don’t miss your chance to catch her before she goes on tour this summer.

DylanSullivan

Sullivan’s claim to fame is an incredible performance on Lights Out with David Spade, which grew out of his stand-up debut at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. When LA closed due to COVID, he made Austin his home. Using his boyish looks and infectious laughs to disarm you, he’s not afraid to talk about racy topics. With her great talent for crowd-working, each Sullivan show is one-of-a-kind.

Taylor Dowdy

One of Austin’s hardest-working comics, producers, and podcasters, Norman lures you in with his timid demeanor, but quickly takes you on a dark ride of subject matter that will have you cringing and laughing out loud. His long-running monthly show Off scenariowhere heckling is encouraged, gives this self-proclaimed and flexible five-star lesbian all the right skills with the public.
Upcoming shows.

Taylor Dowdy

Not only is he one of the most gifted storytellers in town, but Dowdy is also one of the most fashionable, and his sense of style complements and elevates his comedy. Dowdy shares his unique stories of misfortune and misadventure in hilarious ways. It also produces shows throughout the city, including Residenceso you can follow his hilarious stories long after the festival.

Brandi Davis

Davis draws you in with her self-deprecating wit and silliness, before letting you know she has a mad crush on her mother. Host of a weekly open mic, Cackle the shack, she’s eccentric, weird, and doesn’t know what pronouns to use, but tells us there’s nothing wrong with using some. And that’s exactly what makes Davis so likeable.
