We had read the reviews and have to concur that it is definitely the SNL of Texas. It was pretty much non-stop laughter throughout the entire show.

Lots of fun. Comedy show with different performers and some Austin humor. Always a surprise for those who sit in the front seats.

I love to go here for special occasions. I have been on New Year's Eve and for birthdays. It's a fun place to take out of town guests to see why we say keep Austin weird.

I purchased reserved seats online. Do they email a confirmation and tickets or do I pick up at the box office the night of the performance? If so, how much time before the show should I come?

They'll email you a confirmation that has a bar code for each ticket. We printed ours out and brought with us, but they didn't even need to scan them. Because you have reserved seats, getting there 30 minutes early is... More
