SXSW has announced this year’s comedy line-up for the fun in March. The full repertoire of performers can be found on the website, with a mix of stand up shows, full shows, recordings, and live tapings.
Have aloof through the list at the SXSW website, with a lot of new and upcoming names (just like SXSW Music) but with the occasional big hitter in the mix (including Beth Stelling, W Kamau Bell, Glen Wool, and Katie Dippold all catching my eye.
As well as the usual gigs and podcast recordings we’ve seen in previous years, the SXSW team are recurring two love comedy specials for subsequent broadcast. These will both take place at The North Door on Sunday March 15th.
With just over three weeks to go until SXSW kicks off once more, it’s time for the regular SXSW Baby! podcast to start up again. This year we’re going to build up to SXSW through a series of ‘Understanding SXSW’ podcasts. Today’s introductory podcast will explain it all (as well as introduce you to ‘Five Things That You Need To Pack In Your SXSW Bag‘), and as your trip to Austin gets closer we’ll have a ‘beginner’s level’ podcast, followed by ‘intermediate’ and then ‘expert’ tips and advice from the SXSW Baby! team.
Follow the SXSW Baby! blog for more South by Southwest fun, and what we’re up to as we get ready for Austin via Twitter at @SXSWbaby. Got news about SXSW for us? Get in touch via SXSW Baby’s contact form! Don’t forget to follow the podcast via the RSS feed.
Well, the talk of the town from last year’s SXSW Music isn’t coming back. We’ve a bit of a love/hate relationship with the iTunes Festival that rolled into Austin last year. Eric loved the organisation, vibe, and ticket allocation of Cupertino’s fest promotional vehicle. On the other hand I didn’t like the way it sucked the mainstream media’s attention away from the indie artists and smaller stars that make up SXSW.
Lets see how we get on without a great big Apple invasion this year, and let’s get the focus back on the new music.
