Altercation Comedy Fest’s JT Habersaat

My KUTX // October 14, 2023

Comedian, music fan, and Austin resident JT Habersaat has been steadily combining all three of these things with his excellent yearly offering, Altercation Comedy Fest. Now in its eighth year, the fest returns to Kick Butt Coffee November 1-4. The intimate venue on Airport Blvd packs stand-up from Sam Miller, Eddie Pepitone, Kate Willett, and many more, plus live music, podcast tapings, and films.

Altercation feels more like an exciting three-ring circus than a festival, and once again, the ringmaster himself is back as our guest DJ this week on My KUTX. JT previews the fest, digs into recent reissues from Morphine and Jonathan Richman, and a whole lot more. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, October 14 or anytime right here.
