About THE PITCH

"They’re typical high-tech investors, armored in their coy looks and casual Target fashions. But our ideas will puncture their armor, and we’ll suck every last sticky drop of capital out of them."

 

American Berserk Theatre is proud to present Meeting #1: The Pitch, an intimate new comedy experience. 

 

The Pitch was conceived in partnership with CreativNow, an emerging player on Austin’s start-up scene with a revolutionary approach to empowering creativity with technology. CreativNow is excited to present their vision to a select group of potential angel investors, and we want you to be among them! We promise that it will be a provocative and highly entertaining hour of paradigm-shifting content.

THE PITCH is the forth group-devised scripted theatrical production of American Berserk Theatre, whose “brilliantly performed” 2016 production Subject to Control, 2017 production For Time and Eternity, and 2018 production Killer Girls were all warmly received by the Austin Chronicle. It’s the latest project of playwright and actor Curtis Luciani, brought to life using a unique creation process drawing on the company's skills in improvisation and sketch comedy.

The experience will be performed at the Hideout Annex space
(5555 N Lamar Blvd B103, Austin, TX 78751 - around the corner from the Goodwill, next to the Crossfit place)

Praise for Previous Collaborations

Brilliantly performed...Always, Luciani and Beeler of American Berserk Theatre illuminate just how intelligent comedy can get and how slapstick-funny postmodern knowledge can be.

Wayne Alan Brenner

Austin Chronicle

Wild and unpredictable . . . the characters are off-the-wall fun.

American Berserk Theatre has created quite a heady yet funny treat for us with its first outing, and I eagerly look forward to more.
