What Is this Thing?

Late Show Austin is an evening of unabashed entertainment . Its a place to get into the heads of interesting filmmakers & entertainers and for filmmakers to showcase their projects, tell us how they did it and what plans are in the pipeline. Its a place for comedians to tickle us with humor while showing filmmakers just what theyre capable of. Its a show to get your groove on with music from the Live Music Capital of the World. And its where to laugh a whole lot and just generally get entertained.

Host Charlie Hodge engages with his panel of guests in a variety of comedic ways, conducting interviews, playing games, presenting skits, interacting with the audience, and more. Each episode is slated to feature a couple of guests—one well-known & one up-and-comer, a stand-up comedian, and a band or musician… altogether on a single sofa.

Austin has long been a haven for the eclectic, the misfits, and the dreamers. For decades, vibrant creative souls have been roaming streets such as Guadalupe & Congress, prepping their skits for Esthers Follies, gearing up for their cinematic premieres at SXSW, or hustling to their gigs at any of Austins 270 live music venues. Late Show Austin is a nighttime talk show committed to celebrating these trend-setting Austin artists.

Late Show Austin offers an entertaining experience that allows our community to meet local filmmakers, comedians, musicians, and other entertainers as they get together in a fun and uniquely Austin environment.
