Let’s Go Swimming @ Kinda Tropical
Nov 24 @ 9:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Line-up /Flying Turns, Jes Carpenter When I asked the moon to hang out, I never thought it would reply to my DM. It hit me back with a shooting star emoji and I sent a kissy face and it sent a weightlifter and here we are, on a date. I picked it up in my spaceship just kidding, we took those electric scooters and went to Kinda Tropical where the drinks are always full and the vibes are always new and Flying Turns were waxing/waning on turntables/CDJs. The moon seemed a little nervous. I put my hand on its leg as like a flirty gesture but turns out it wasn’t a leg, it was a breast things got really uncomfortable and it said, that’s not how you walk on the moon then we sidehugged goodbye because I didn’t want to accidentally touch its other breast and it ghosted on me for 28 days but now it’s back at KT grinding on the disco ball Thank you for reading that silly poem. We’re back at Kinda Tropical the weekend after Thanksgiving, dreaming of warmer temperatures and welcoming bodies of water. Iron Mike will be down for the count, so Son Fjord, Hayden Edward, and Dan Gentile will be joined by super-homie Jes Carpenter. You may know him from his Loose Fit parties, tireless work to bring dance music to SXSW, and record-setting attendance at our parties. And as always, thanks to Cord Luehrman for the flyer design. Let’s Go Swimming!

Unless specifically stated above, Fallout Theater is all ages and BYOB. However, if the event is providing free booze (which sometimes happens), or if we have drink service provided by Party Pulse, you’ll have to show a 21+ ID in order to partake. Other than that, our programming tends to be PG-13 & up, so keep that in mind.WHAT’S YOUR REFUND POLICY? If you buy an online ticket, you should arrive 30 min before the start of the show to guarantee getting a seat because we also sell tickets at the door and usually have a crowd waiting for no-show seats. If you don’t arrive at least 10 min before the show, your seats could be given out to people on our waiting list, and if that happens, you will not be entitled to a refund as we don’t offer refunds after the show has started.—————————————————This show is presented by talent from Fallout Theater, the newest destination for Austin Comedy and the premiere destination for Alternative Improv/Sketch/Stand- Up. Come early to chill in our downtown lobby lounge and meet the best comedians around. Register for our sketch & improv classes year-round at FalloutComedy.com.

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet @Spider House Ballroom / ATX @ Spider House Cafe & Ballroom
Nov 30 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Shit-faced Shakespeare is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 100,000 eager theatre goers across the UK + US. Shit-faced Shakespeare landed Stateside in April of 2015 continues to bring you the hilarity at Spider House Ballroom with Romeo and Juliet. With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist – reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly. ONGOING through 2018! NOTE: Most performances have doors at 6:00 / Curtain at 7:00pm (with a few exceptions — please check your ticket for exact showtimes as they can vary!)
