- Excused Absence Fest takes place February 13 – 15, 2021 at various venues in Austin, Texas and online via Zoom.
- It is a public event that includes Improv, Stand Up, Sketch Performances & Workshops for performers and fans of all ages.
- In 2020, our youngest performer was 2 and half. Our eldest, was 76.
- Most shows have a G or PG rating and are best enjoyed by patrons ages 6 and up.
- Shows for toddler & pre-school audiences will be marked as such.
- A subset of shows for teens will be identified as such and will be allowed a wider range of topics. Though these shows may include more mature content, the expectation is that respect for fellow performers and audience members will be observed at all times.
