SXSW 2013 is right around the corner. This year we are hosting comedy shows at the IFC Crossroads House (302 E. 6th street) and everyone is coming. SXSW Comedy released the lineup and schedule for this year’s showcase of standup, improv and sketch comedy, along with live podcast recordings and comedy-focused panels. On the agenda? Some of our favorite comedians including Marc Maron, Comedy Bang! Bang!’s Scott Aukerman, Reggie Watts, Portlandia’s Fred Armisen and our adopted comic Chris Gethard.
But we’re not playing favorites with the comics who just happen to have shows on our channel. We’re also excited to see Tim Heidecker, James Adomian, Ken Marino, W. Kamau Bell, Eddie Pepitone, Eugene Mirman, Aisha Tyler, and Sarah Silverman who are all among the featured comedians in the 2013 lineup. This year, among the events there are also several live podcast recordings including WTF with Marc Maron, Comedy Bang! Bang! and Doug Benson’s The Benson Interruption.
To kick things off stop by the SXSW Comedy Opening Party (presented by IFC & JASH) on March 9 with performances by Sarah Silverman and Reggie Watts, then on March 11, swing down to the Funny or Die & Team Coco’s Comedy Climax After Party. The official venues for SXSW Comedy are Esther’s Follies (presented by TuneIn Radio), The North Door and The IFC Crossroads House.
