Attention Standup Comedians: We want more innovative programming. We want your shows. We want them by July 18th!
his is the Standup Showdown and here’s how it works – we are taking pitches for interesting programming via the form below. The top 4 ideas will then be booked during prime TNM show slots for all of August. If your pitch wins you would get the chance to have your show booked monthly on a Friday night at 10:30p.
In the past we’ve had comedians come to us with interesting shows that still books local talent but in a new, innovative way. We would like this competition to provide a great location to better showcase all the comedy talent Austin has to offer. Kath Barbadoro and Andrew Tompkins have done shows with us in the past like Wimbletube, a competition based around YouTube clips, and currently we are producing Laugh Dammit! with Derek Phelps and Happy Birthday! with Duncan Carlson. We are looking for more programming like this.
So, do you think you’re the next Tim Allen or Gallagher? Well, you could be and right here is your chance to have your very own Home Improvement, Hollywood Squares, Watermelon smash, etc. What’s next? Just fill out the form below and pitch us your idea. We will notify the winners late July. Deadline for submissions is July 18th. We’re looking forward to reading all your submissions. Thanks for making Austin the comedy town it is.
P.S. Tim Allen and Gallagher not eligible.
