Couldn’t make it to Austin to catch SXSW? No worries, we got you.
Mashable and Twitter have teamed up to create The Mashable Show, streaming the best of SXSW 2017 straight to your timeline from Mashable House in Austin, Texas.
The exclusive 90-minute live stream kicked off on Friday with Cookie Monster, Kerri Doherty and all things Interactive, Film and Music at the festival. The Twitter broadcast continues Saturday at 1 p.m. EST so if you thought day one had a dope lineup, get ready for day two.
Saturday promises to deliver a stacked lineup of comedians, entrepreneurs and, as is absolutely obligatory, BBQ coverage.
Some exciting day two highlights you don’t want to miss:
Bert From Sesame Street
There’s really only one
person puppet that could follow Cookie Monster as The Mashable Show‘s day one co-host, and it’s Sesame Street‘s resident grump, Bert.
With all the excellent musical acts SXSW promises this year, let’s hope Bert is ready to break it all the way down.
One of New York’s top comedians, Matteo Lane, brings the comedy fix.
You may recognize him from MTV’s GirlCode, MTV2’S GuyCode, or Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show, or Adam Devine’s House Party. Coming from Chicago, Lane performs regularly all around New York, and should be your new favorite Twitter follow.
How can we trust Jeff Sessions? He spent his entire life making average tasting cookies in a tree.

Joel Kim Booster
Joel Kim Booster is another New York comedy prodigy we promise you’ll want to know.
Also hailing from Chicago, Booster has been featured on major comedy programs on Logo, Comedy Central, and Conan.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this certified funny set.
You know it wouldn’t be a complete show without a badass lady in the mix.
Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and former mention on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World list () will be stopping by for Saturday’s edition Mashable Show. We know this will be good.
Watch this queen explain the dangers of the GOP’s future plan to replace Obamacare here.
Bloggers of the world, rejoice.
The show will also have Tumblr‘s founder, first-ever blogger, and current CEO David Karp stop by for its second day of SXSW coverage.
Here’s a quick brush-up on Karp’s beginnings.
O.K., this is seriously legendary.
Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker, screenwriter, and musician, who calls Texas home, will also be joining Mashable for our second day of the live stream. You may know him from a number of his iconic films including El Mariachi, Sin City, and the notable childhood staple Spy Kids.
Here’s a clip of the famed director showering some knowledge on SXSW 2015.
The best BBQ of Austin
If you’re like us (read: me), the greatest FOMO you’re feeling about SXSW might just be that authentic Texas barbecue experience. Fear not, the hardworking people at The Mashable Show are going to do their best to deliver that sweet (and savory) experience to you. ( )
Let’s get ready for some BBQ sauce.
