Seeso Unveils SXSW Plans with Four Live Shows This March
Seeso, the premier comedy streaming destination, today unveiled a complete line up at SXSW 2017 Comedy, with four live shows beginning on March 11-14 at Esther's Follies (525 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701), Seeso's home throughout the festival comedy portion. All shows will begin at 10:00 PM CT.
Charlie Sotelo, Head of SXSW Comedy, said: "Seeso has distinguished itself not only by creating compelling original series but also by recording and preserving some of the most vital live comedy happening today. They provide comedy fans with a well-produced snapshot of contemporary comedy, featuring big name acts and future greats at some of the most popular live shows from around the country. What they're doing now will become an invaluable time capsule and SXSW Comedy is proud to once again partner with Seeso to help build that legacy."
Wyatt Cenac brings his critically-acclaimed Seeso Show "Night Train with Wyatt Cenac" to the stage on March 11 with DJ Donwill, and guest starring Janeane Garofalo, John Hodgman, Joel Kim Booster, Dulce Sloan and Tim Dillon. The one night only show will be livestreamed on Seeso's Facebook Page.
Big Jay Oakerson brings his hit Seeso Original Series, "What's Your F@%king Deal?!," to Esther's Follies show on March 12 with special guests Bonnie McFarlane, Joe DeRosa, Sean Patton, Eddie Pepitone and TBD. "What's Your F@%king Deal?!" is a 100% crowd-work with rule: no material allowed. The 10pm CT show will be livestreamed on Seeso's Facebook page. Season two of "What's Your F@%king Deal?!" is set to premiere on Seeso April 6.
Together with social video platform Twitch, Seeso is bringing its dragon-sized hit "HarmonQuest" to SXSW. Creator and star Dan Harmon ("COMMUNITY," "RICK AND MORTY"), game-master Spencer Crittenden, Jeff B. Davis, Erin McGathy and special guest Jason Mantzoukas ("THE LEAGUE") will do a live show at Esther's on March 13 at 10pm CT, with an exclusive livestream on Twitch (www.twitch.tv/HarmonQuest). Twitch personality Adam Koebel (Twitch.tv/adamkoebel) will also be taking part in the stream.
Additionally, on March 14, Doug Stanhope will film his all-new stand-up special "Doug Stanhope and Friends" with special guests Morgan Murphy, Glenn Wool and Brendon Walsh. Much like Stanhope's hit Seeso special "No Place Home," this tag team special promises to lay waste to political correctness first for the audiences in Austin, and then exclusively to Seeso platforms on June 22.
While in Austin, Seeso also will raise money and awareness for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) under their "Comedy Stands Up" partnership, in person at Esther's Follies and via the Seeso Facebook page.
Each day, beginning at 3:00 PM CT, Matteo Lane will be covering SXSW live from Esther's Follies and the streets of Austin, via daily Snapchat "Live Stories" and Instagram Videos. Lane also will intro each live streamed show from Esther's.
Fans can catch up on previous seasons of "HarmonQuest," "Night Train with Wyatt Cenac," "Big Jay Oakerson's What's Your F@%king Deal?!" and Doug Stanhope's "No Place Like Home" on Seeso platforms now.<
