Best Truly Odd Comedy Venue

The Institution Theater

When improv vet Tom Booker founded the Institution Theater in 2007, it didn't quite live up to its name. Heck, it didn't even have a dedicated performance space. But nine years later, not only does it still survive, it has become an indispensable part of Austin's comedy landscape – emerging as an incubator for the city's best performers to hone their craft.
