Our good friend Wayne Alan Brenner at the Chronicle put us in his top 10 favorite art events of 2007. He says, "these slices of gonzo marzipan are a perfect snack for the hyperintelligent and ultrasilly."
The Austin Chronicle bestows a Best of Austin '07 award to Backpack Picnic. "Somewhere between dry satire and slapstick comedy is where Backpack Picnic's humor lands, verging on the merely surreal but still enough to make you laugh out loud."
Backpack Picnic featured in The New York Times.
Backpack Picnic is honored to have won the award for Best Sketch Comedy Troupe, as bestowed upon them by their peers in the Austin Improv Collective.
Backpack Picnic is interviewed by The Onion just before our Out of Bound showcase.
