SXSW 2012 Announces Comedy Lineup

This is very exciting news for us over here at Pinpoint. Although I saw Aziz Ansari out on the streets last year and got halfway “whats up” when I said I was a ‘big fan’ in a very non-fanboy fashion; we didn’t get much of a chance to check out the great comedy that comes year in and year out to SXSW.

Check out the scheduled lineup here: http://sxsw.com/comedy

I’m personally looking forward to seeing Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, some Wyatt Cenac and I know there are some HUGE UCB Comedy fans amongst our ranks. Going to be great!
