GIGGLEPANTS CELEBRATES 20 YEARS

SPECIAL EVENT

Friday April 26 at 7 – 10:30 PM

In the year of our lord 2004, a small group of students going to UT Austin took it upon themselves to entertain their fellow humans with shortform improv. They would name their troupe Gigglepants, a name that sounded dumb at first but grew to become a UT institution. For the past 20 years, Gigglepants has entertained countless numbers of Austinites and produced dozens of performers that have taken their *real* college educations to work across the country.

Everything You Wanted to Know About White Supremacy…

Saturdays at 8:30pm April 13 – May 18

EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY* (*but were too afraid to ask), is a satirical sketch revue exploring white supremacy’s grip on America through comedy. The show isn’t designed to solve racism (or offer any REAL answers) but rather highlight the absurdity, and horror, of it all.   
 
This project has been financed in part or in whole by the City of Austin's Elevate program.
