Saturday’s Pick: Bad Example Sketch Comedy

Rachel Corbelli

Set your DVR to record this week’s Saturday Night Live and head over to The New Movement (TNM) to see the only sketch comedy group in Austin with new material every week.

The group, Bad Example, is setting the bar for other comedy performers in Austin. Comprised of funny people Cody Cartagena, Roxy Castillo, Micheal Foulk, Ariel Greenspoon, Vanessa Gonzalez and Jeff Whitaker, Bad Example writes and performs original, never-before-seen sketches every Saturday at TNM. Not even Second City, Chicago’s premiere sketch comedy group with alumni like Tina Fey and Bill Murray, pulls that off.

The show, this week and every week, begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door, or $20 for a monthly pass to the show. And don’t forget, TNM is B.Y.O.B.
