Texas Comedies creates musical comedies about famous – and infamous – events in Texas. We’ve done shows about the Texas Revolution, Spanish explorers, Bonnie & Clyde, the border patrol, and oil boomtowns. We’re always looking for new ideas: events in your Texas town or county to turn into an entertaining one-hour show with a live band.  We’re now on the Texas Touring Roster!
