Widely hailed by critics and colleagues as a defining talent of the Austin comedy scene, Lucas Molandes has an impressive list of accomplishments that include appearances at the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” and twice appearing on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast.

Most recent, Lucas has split his time between Austin and New York, where he was a writer for season 1 of MTV's Failosophy, and MTV 2's season 3 of The Guy Code. 

To call Lucas’s inimitable brand of comedy “observational” would be a gross understatement – he operates on an X-ray level, seeking out the dark and dusty corners of the human condition and relishing every opportunity to pick awkward truths and embarrassing gems from the wriggling bones of personal failures, weaknesses, unrequited expectations and (of course) love.  - www.lastgascomedy.com



“Molandes is in the moment, his delivery crisp, his timing perfect, his material smart.” — Austin American Statesman


"He was the Funniest Person In Austin, officially, in 2010. You wanna try to find anyone funnier than Molandes even now, you're likely destined to fail” – The Austin Chronicle

"Molandes’ charismatic, often cerebral style keeps audiences captivated by his musings, rather than enslaved by the fact that he’s assaulting their expectations while making them laugh." - Splitsider.com



"Since 2004, Molandes has been developing into the kind of stand-up comic other up- and-coming stand-ups want to be. His conversational style can't be stolen. His material is wide-reaching yet perfect for alternative rooms: He can hop from poverty to the life and times of Jesus Christ without alienating the believers and the non-broke." - Washington City Paper

"A wonderfully pitch-dark after-after-glowing palette of gallows humor, languor, and self-deprecation." Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival Blog



“New Face stand-up Lucas Molandes showed yet again that Austin breeds very smart and clever comedians.” – The Comics Comic
