Moontower Comedy and Oddity festival in Austin, TX this past weekend did not disappoint. Event organizers and planners did a wonderful job, selecting terrific venues (my favorite being St. David’s Bethel Hall), the majority of which were in walking distance from one another, and if you had a badge you were allowed to park in the One American Center Parking Garage for free, in the evenings located at 7th and Congress – only a few blocks away from most of the action.

In only it’s second year, Moontower delivered – the talent was stellar. On Thursday night alone I caught Neal Brennan, Myq Kaplan, Chris Hardwick, the legendary Dom Irrera, Andy Kindler, The Lucas Brothers, Marc Maron  Judah Friedlander, and this awesome sad faced singing clown named Puddles.

I was fortunate enough to sit down with a few comedians performing at Moontower last week.

Check back with LCC later in the week for  in depth interviews with Andy Kindler, Myq Kaplan and the The Lucas Brothers.
