The gang at Loser City has been covering Austin’s Moontower Comedy Festival since before Loser City even existed. So of course we’re excited to be back this year and while the festival technically started yesterday with Ron White’s Texas Toasted event, the festival in full begins today and we’re here to help you pick what to see. We’ve made 8 selections, and understandably you’re probably wondering “Why 8?!” Well, we already know you’re going to see Maria Bamford and Patton Oswalt, the two chief headliners this year outside of Ron White, so we’ve focused on the 8 remaining holes in your schedule with a look at some legends, some reigning favorites and some newcomers.
