The Paramount Theatre


Join Austin Film Festival and Moontower Comedy Festival for a weekend of conversations with some of the best voices in comedy, where we’ll delve into the nitty gritty of comedy writing and how your standup can inform your craft as a writer and performer. We’re hosting three live tapings of Austin Film Festival’s award-winning On Story television series at the 2019 Moontower Comedy Festival on April 26 and April 27.

LA Times film critic Kenneth Turan says: “ON STORY is film school in a box, a lifetime’s worth of filmmaking knowledge squeezed into half hour packages.”

In the comedy world, it’s no secret that performing standup and improv can only improve your writing.
