If you are looking to get onstage, this probably isn't the place. The doorman will tell you to befriend the person who's in charge...and this is how you get onstage. The club hasn't always been like this so I think it's due to the recent popularity of the place.

As a last minute idea we were looking for a comedy routine to see. Most of the others were already sold out. We found this one on line and figured for $10 it would be worth the try. We laughed so hard we were in tears, they were so funny!

This is the BEST place to see comedy!! Every weekend you get to see up-and-comer acts that you may never have heard of but who will blow your socks off! Easily the best entertainment value in Austin.

We found this place advertized in the Austin Chronicle because they were having a comedy show the night we were in town. For $10 cover, we saw three comedians over an hour or so. The comedians were all great and the venue was small enough to really enjoy yourself. If I was living in Austin, I'd definitely keep my eye... More

For $10 a person we were able to see 3 comedians! The atmosphere was comfortable with the choice of small tables, booths, or bar. The ladies bathroom is extremely small and awkward so avoid it during peak times as the layout makes it almost impossible to wash your hands. My boyfriend bought the drinks so I do not know if...

This is a nice little place, right on sixth street next to Esther's Follies. I got in here for free as I bought the ticket to Esther's follies. I don't imagine the entry would be too expensive though. They do have a full bar, but no draft beer (only bottles). Beer wasnt too expensive either ($4.5+tip), so not bad at... More
