The Austin Funny Songs Fest comedy-music festival comes off the tail of its’ successful big sister, the The NY Funny Songs Festival. The festival franchise originated in Manhattan in 2012, spearheaded by a group of comedian musicians who wanted to bridge the gap between comedy and music. The NY Funny Songs Fest, now in its third year, is branching out with dates scheduled for Austin, Texas to coincide with the SXSW festival, May 10-16th, and for Philadelphia, PA on Saturday, March 29th and Sunday, March 30th, 2014. Comedy music is—“Songs that are written with the intention of making the audience laugh, chortle, guffaw, chuckle, and sometimes, even cringe in delight”.

Performers include comedic musicians who have been featured on The Dr. Demento Radio Show, TMZ, Fox Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld, SiriusXM and more, such as twisted minstrel Ms. Jessica Delfino, Andy Kaufman Award runner up Kelly Dwyer, funny jazz femme Camille Harris, plus appearances by Austin area comedians Amy Jordan, Maggie Maye, and more.

The Austin Funny Songs Fest’s events will be listed at www.AustinFunnySongs.com and a big showcase is planned to take place on the evening of Friday, March 14th, 2014 at the New Movement Theater with a show at 10 PM and a party immediately following. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or in advance at www.austinfunnysongs.com. Other events will include pop-up and public spectacles to be added to the festival’s website.
