Velveeta Room

521 E. Sixth
Austin, 78701
512/766-8358
The venerable Velv, as it's known to habitués, started in 1988 as a stand-up comedy offshoot of Esther's Follies' next-door emporium of sketch and improv. Re-named after comedian Kerry Awn's shecky persona Ronnie Velveeta, what had once been Sixth Street's last strip club (The Embassy Room) was transformed into a sometimes thriving, sometimes struggling bastion of stand-up that is currently, under the management of Mario DiGiorgio, enjoying a sort of 21st-century renaissance with top local and hot touring acts setting the weekends on comedy fire.

Joe Hafkey

If you don't know him from that popular Triplane show, then you know him from some comedy event in this city – Moontower, Hell Yes, Beardo Thodol, et cetera – because the man's been a big part of so many of them. Ah, Jesus, Hafkey's pretty much everywhere – but never showcased as well as he is this weekend at the Velv, with Andrew Murphy hosting and that Katie Pengra showing up for even more fun. Fri., July 22 - Sat., July 23July 22-23. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.
