    First Date LIVE! w/ Mark Normand & Ari Shaffir

    Ladies and gentlemen, red flags of all ages...This week we've got a special treat for you, it's the debut episode of First Date Live! Lauren Compton has brought her show to the Creek and Cave stage here in Austin and tonight she's not alone. Joining her to roast, praise, and judge a gauntlet of prospective dates are Mark Normand and Ari Shaffir! Instead of the usual apps, mains, and desserts, Lauren has brought unique challenges and trivia questions to help narrow down who the most dateable Austinite truly is. The best of the best are subjected to a song competition that may or may not get us flagged for copyright, but that's half the fun. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the anxiety inducing madness of dating in front of a live audience.

Even though they're currently on a date, Preacher makes it very clear that he is not interested in dating. He's pretty good at avoiding Lauren's dating questions, but she finds a way to get through to him. In the end, Lauren finds out he actually is quite a romantic guy.

    On this week's episode of First Date, Lauren invites Jason Ellis on a date. Jason is a man of many talents: fighter, skateboarder, podcaster, comedian. But Lauren really gets to know Jason's soft sensitive side despite his tough exterior.  Jason is not afraid of laying it all out there; from his egotistical tendencies, his journey with sobriety, and proclivity for dark-sided women. Lauren also talks to Jason a lot about his coming out as bisexual...that may or may not be a phase.
