The Joke of Painting

The Joke of Painting is a showcase for some of Austin's best comedians, but wait--there's a twist! Not only do these cats know their way around a joke, but they're not too shabby with a canvas either. Don't get us wrong, some of them couldn't paint a straight line if their life depended on it, which is very well may. This show gets weird sometimes. Each comic will be doing their own step-by-step demonstration on how to paint a piece of art of their choosing, with an extra dose of laughs, their jokes!!!! Comedy IS art, baby. You think you…

Playpen: New Born Comedy Every Tuesday! Playpen is a comedy open mic hosted by Nikita Redkar and Elizabeth Spears. Every Tuesday at 8 p.m., a selection of comics will each have three minutes to try out their new material. Comics are required to perform brand new jokes that have never seen the light of the stage! Some jokes will shine, some will retreat back into the darkness. Either way, every week will bring a fun and unique show. To attend Playpen, just show up and Pay-What-You-Want for admission! To perform on Playpen, email us at least 24 hours in advance…

What Had Happened Was: Improvised Scenes from History. Kind of.

What Had Happened Was turns the audience's suggestion of a historical event into a tapestry of facts, misunderstandings and laughs. With a focus on tying the events that lead to history's greatest catastrophes to events of today, this cast of world-class improvisers will live, love, fight, die, and probably get a lot of stuff wrong in the time period of your choice. At only $5 and BYOB, this hour long show is great comedy for a pittance! (See, we're using historical lingo already!)
