Road comics have the best stories. When they start out, they have to play pretty much anywhere with a microphone and a stage that’s willing to barter jokes for actual money, food or a night of sleep in the barn. Austin’s Matt Sadler has a ton of those stories. He once heard the greatest comeback line during a fight at a biker bar and he also had the brilliant idea to use comics to campaign against drinking and driving. He got his first big break as the winner of HBO’s National Talent Search in 1999, which led to a string of gigs across the country and in Korea and Japan. He’s also toured with the USO to entertain troops in the Middle East and hosted the Xbox and PS2 trivia game “The Guy Game.” He'll be at Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub (5321 E. Mockingbird Lane) at 8:30 p.m. Thursday and 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Thursday show is free. Tickets for Friday and Saturday are $10-$15, depending on available seating
Fridays, Saturdays, 8:30 p.m.; Fri., April 3, 10:30 p.m. Starts: March 27. Continues through April 4, 2015

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
