Stand Up Empire 1 Year Anniversary / 1st Episode Screening!
May 17, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
Every week for the past year, Brently Artists and Media, Heard Entertainment, and Devolver DIgital Films have teamed up to bring the open mic StandUp Empire to life.
Within that same year, the team has put on live showcase/taping events that were shot and edited into a new TV series, which aspires to spotlight Austin’s burgeoning comedy scene similarly to how KLRU TV’s iconic A ustin City Limits has done with musicians for 42 years.
The one year anniversary celebration at Empire Control Room & Garage on East 7th street will feature a special showcase of local comics who have performed in the series, including Maggie Maye, Daniel Webb, Kath Barbadoro, Lashonda Lester, Roxy Castillo, Martin Urbano, Lisa Delarios, Andrew Dismukes, and hosted by Kim Stacy.
In addition, a firstever sneak peak of the first episode of Stand Up Empire will be screened at the event featuring Chris Cubas and Saffron Herndon and a profile on Lietza Brass, executive producer of the Moontower Comedy Festival.
Come on out! #SupportAustinComedy
