SXSW Comedy: Upright Citizens Brigade Presents The Chris Gethard Show
The Chris Gethard Show is billed as "the most bizarre and often saddest talk show in New York City." It ran for over two years to sold out houses at the UCB Theater in New York, and now broadcasts live every Wednesday night on Manhattan's public access television station. It has a reputation for being the home of some strange stunts - from using Twitter to convince Sean "Diddy" Combs to appear on the show, to flying a depressed Ohio teenager to New York City to give him the best night of his life, to staging an unplanned cross country tour where people could dictate the route via social media, to shows where people have been electrocuted, have been shot with paintballs, have pissed their pants on purpose, have been beaten by kickboxers, and many, many, more, this show thinks outside the box and knows how to go for it. They're coming to Austin ready to put on a very interactive, very high risk, very balls to the wall show. Featuring Chris Gethard, Shannon O'Neill, the Human Fish, music by the LLC, and much, much more!
