As the name suggests, nothing is off-limits at this festival showcasing some of the best acts in improv, sketch and stand-up comedy. Now a full-blown seven-day affair held at several of Austin’s best venues for comedy — including the Velveeta Room, Spider House Ballroom and the Hideout Theatre — Out of Bounds features several live performances per day, with the highlight this year being former Texas Sen. Wendy Davis as a guest storyteller at Spider House on Sept. 1.
The Velveeta Room is just one of the venues hosting comedy artists for Out of Bounds Comedy Festival this week.
