Sandbox with Rob Gagnon

SANDBOX with Rob Gagnon: Passionate. Creative. Comedy.

Rob Gagnon creates comedy that people like. In the past three years he has produced The One Hour Comedy Festival, F*cked Up Show and Tell, Eulogized, and STONED vs DRUNK vs SOBER, a show that Laugh Button celebrated as one of the 9 Most Unique Comedy Shows in the Nation. The Austin Chronicle called Rob "One of Fun Fun Fun Fest's most intriguing prospects." His work in short film has been honored by the Texas Independent Film Festival and he will be featured in an upcoming issue of GQ Magazine. But more than anything, Rob wants to do everything.

In his newest show, Sandbox with Rob Gagnon, the confines of a format have been lifted. Rob puts on an original show every Tuesday at 9pm featuring some of the cities best stand ups and improvisors doing anything but traditional stand up and improv. One week, Sandbox may feature a dozen different segments. An interview with a porn star? Live video game overdubs on the projector? An onstage cooking segment in which Rob and an audience member make a fresh garlic/goat cheese/red pepper dip for the crowd in under five minutes? All of the above.

The next week may be devoted entirely to honoring the hooded sweatshirt with sketches, music, and stand up followed by another week of something completely different. You'll never know until the week of the show.

Get involved in AUSTIN'S NEWEST MUST SEE COMEDY SHOW, Sandbox with Rob Gagnon. Every Tuesday at The New Movement in downtown Austin. Free Parking/9pm/$5/BYOB.
