All the Austin comics at Moontower Comedy Festival 2024

Before you get your laughs on at this annual April festival, we wanted to tell you about some of the comedians that call ATX home.

When one festival closes, another one opens here in ATX. Next up, it’s Moontower Comedy Festival.

This year’s edition takes place from Wednesday, April 10 to Sunday, April 21 and features A-listers including Ronny Chieng, Tim Robinson, Ms. Pat, and Amy Sedaris.

Festival passes run $140-$1,250 and some headline shows are subject to different tickets. Single tickets for shows are also available.

This year, there are 25 Austin-based comedians performing at the festival (pending any new announcements) so we rounded them all up in one place, plus where you may have seen them before. You can also view the full lineup here.
