It's March (March!), which means we're only a couple of weeks away from South by Southwest — SXSW — the annual music festival in Austin that has become so much more than a music festival.
Which means they've got comedy programming on the schedule again for 2010, with showcases planned by Comedy Central to promote its new series Ugly Americans and a movie version of Drawn Together, a St. Patrick's Day double-bill from Hollywood club The Comedy Store (see the flyer), and several nights of stand-up at Esther's Follies.
Check out this list of 2010 SXSW comedy performers: Andi Smith, Andy Ritchie, Ben Kronberg, Big Jay Oakerson, Brian Posehn, Chelsea Peretti, Dan Boulger, Eugene Mirman, Hannibal Buress, Hari Kondabolu, Howard Kremer, Jimmie Roulette, Joe Mande, Kevin Avery, Kristen Schaal, Kurt Braunohler, Kyle Kinane, Lucas Molandes, Margaret Cho, Maria Bamford, Matt Braunger, Natasha Leggero, Nick Thune, Parry Gripp, Pete Holmes, Rob Delaney, Scott Aukerman, Tig Notaro, Todd Barry.
Meanwhile, over at Austin's Cap City Comedy Club, they've got Thea Vidale headlining March 12-13, with Myq Kaplan from March 17-20.
One of these days, I'm going to have to go to SXSW. Could these days be this month? If someone has a floor for me to sleep on, then maybe. Just maybe.
