Our Hosts tonight are the Mike and Ralphie!
Mike Graupmann arrived in Austin about a month after Ralph did, but he went to UT several moons before then, so technically he was here first. These days, he's a corporate shill who delights in being a boring suburbanite as much as possible. He is a weekly quizmaster for Geeks Who Drink and is also the host of Austin's chapter of Mortified, where adults are invited to share their childhood writings in front of strangers. Oh, and he has a pug named Dan whose body is shaped like an overstuffed garbage bag. 🖤🦃😍
Ralph Hardesty is a die-hard Midwesterner who, after a series of indelible life mistakes, eventually wound up doing standup comedy in Austin. His popular queer storytelling show, Greetings from Queer Mountain has been shocking and weirding out unsuspecting heterosexual, cisgendered Texans for almost four years. Ralph has performed on PBS and Ovation (which is a tv station, promise) and is proud to be a semi-regular host for Austin's world-class burlesque community!
