Institution Theater

3708 Woodbury
Austin, 78704
512/895-9580
Tom Booker and Asaf Ronen carved this southern outpost of Austin improv out of an industrial space in the warehouse wastelands between St. Edward's University and Ben White Boulevard in 2007. It's built on a foundation of improv, this institution, but the 47-seat black box theatre and many rooms of the Southside's comedy epicenter also feature sketch and stand-up and odd puppet shows and pretty much anything that can raise a chuckle. There's also a strong mix of classes in stand-up, sketch writing, filmmaking, and auditioning, as well as improv.

Arts Calendar

It's Institutional, Alright

The Southside engine of comedy founded by Asaf Ronen and Tom Booker powers out the laughs with a Thursday Night Tightrope variety show, Saturday's Clique Bait, and the Rubber Room jam on Sunday. And, coming up fast: All Hell Breaks Loose. (Note: That's the title of the thing, yes.) $5.
