After a pandemic-induced hiatus, Altercation Comedy Fest is back at Kick Butt Coffee, October 19-22. Conceived by comedian, music fan, and Austin resident JT Habersaat, the fest is a wonderfully freewheeling circus. This year’s headliners include James Adomian, Eddie Pepitone, and Jackie Kashian, all gracing the intimate Kick Butt stage. Plus, there’s music and stories from Austin punk icons Riverboat Gamblers, Mishka Shubaly, an album release show by Heels, and more.
This week on My KUTX, JT returns as our guest DJ to preview the fest with comedy clips and songs. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, October 15 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player at the top of the page.
