From the warped mind of Austinite Troy Dillinger comes the Austin Variety Show, a night of stand-up, live music, burlesque, and adult-takes on a few well-known game shows. Oh, and it’s all videotaped and then broadcast, making it a television show to boot. Scrolling through the pictures on the Austin Variety Show’s website you find: a man in the traditional garb of a Devo member; a corseted woman wielding a whip; moments of brutality from what appears to be a rather aggressive pillow fight – this is a merely a small taste of the debauchery Dillinger offers. Be apart of something truly weird. Buy tickets now!
