Comedy, This Month!
Who brings laughs to Austin stages in the next few weeks?
DAILY Arts January 29, 2018
"...PUNCH: Tuesdays, 8pm Yeah, we rarely list the Tuesday night Punch showcase at Cap City Comedy Club, because that Matt Bearden-hosted gig invariably sells out by the time our print edition hits the streets.

Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival
In Austin's newest festival, stand-up finally gets top billing
Arts Story February 3, 2012, by Robert Faires
"...The Austin Theatre Alliance, better known as the parent organization for the Paramount Theatre and State Theatre (which I still can't bring myself to call Paramount at the Stateside) is the mastermind behind this ambitious new festival, which ATA Executive Director Jim Ritts says he sees becoming one of the two most important comedy festivals in North America in just three years. Certainly the ATA's strong track record with stand-up in recent years – with the Paramount being the site of several Comedy Central specials (Jim Gaffigan, Demetri Martin, Nick Swardson, Bill Engvall) – positions it well with the form, but a better indicator of Moontower's long-term growth may be its sponsoring partners: Cap City Comedy Club (also a presenting venue, not surprisingly); the Adam McKay-Will Ferrell video website Funny or Die (which will program screenings at the State throughout the fest); satirical newspaper The Onion; the New Movement's Hell Yes Fest (which will now piggyback on Moontower); Esquire magazine; and a host of businesses that can provide invaluable support services, from public relations to IT to booze...."

Pat Dean takes over the venue that’s redefining what a “comedy club” can be

He takes the reins from Mario DiGiorgio – a veteran road comic, graphic designer, and former Funniest Person in Austin champion – who, during his tenure, presided over a complete makeover of the club, turning it from one of the seediest rooms Downtown to a comfortable, carefree shotgun lounge..."
