Every Friday at 9:30PM | $40 (x1 = 2 tickets) online

NO walk-up tickets at Box Office | NO BAR | NO BYOB

SURE THING! a live stand up comedy show that happens out in the WORLD- the opposite of doomscrolling! – every Friday night at Fallout Theater.
This week’s lineup is STACKED: headliner Kath Barbadoro (What A Time To Be Alive, Moontower) is back in town from NYC, she’s joined by Austin’s own Justin Hicks, as well as two other ST regulars back from LA: MK Paulsen and Danny “gimme your show” Palumbo!
SURE THING is hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady, who still have as much fun hosting it as they did when it started nearly… nine years ago?! Time is a trip, dang.

“The near-legendary weekly stand-up showcase hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady. If you need to know more than that, Austinite, then you don’t know funny.”
