Moontower Comedy Festival usually punches our funny bones every spring. Not so this year during the coronavirus pandemic. The annual comedy festival rescheduled its 2020 event for Sept. 16-19.

But there’s still time for some April guffaws. SiriusXM has teamed up with the Austin fest for the Virtual Moontower Comedy Festival, which started 11 a.m. Tuesday, with replays at 4 p.m., on SiriusXM Raw Dog channel 99.

Each day on the channel will feature an hour of Moontower Comedy content at 11 a.m.; it all ends in a five-hour marathon May 2. Expect comedy from Moontower alums like Ron Bennington, Big Jay Oakerson, Nikki Glaser, Jessica Kirson, the Sklar Brothers, Andy Kindler and more.

SiriusXM is currently offering free streaming until May 31, extended from May 15. Listen to the Virtual Moontower Comedy Festival at
