ColdTowne Theater

4803-B Airport, Austin, 78751, 512/814-8696
This endearingly tiny, BYOB theatre on the Airport Boulevard corridor between I-35 and Koenig bears the name of the troupe that was chased out of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, wound up in Austin, and opened this little powerhouse of improv and stand-up and sketch comedy. It's been rocking a diversity of troupes and solo artists every night of the week for years. This is where improv royalty The Frank Mills got their start – and still headline weekly. This is where Maggie Maye runs the stand-up mic on Mondays. This is the home of Midnight Society and Movie Riot. This is one of those stalwarts of the comedy scene where the good shit happens.

Stone Cold Comedy

Check out what's happening in this right-next-to-that-funky-video-store hotbed of comedy. Thursdays showcase longtime house improv troupe, the rightfully celebrated Frank Mills, and follow that with the sketches of Pendulum. And then there's the laughalicious ladies of Loverboy going all Kiss and Tell on Fridays; that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar on the same night; and don't miss Barney Miller: Dark Knight debuting on Saturday, wherein your favorites from the 12th precinct deal with the day-to-day in Batman's Gotham; and then, House of 1,000 Sketches and Midnight Society! Oh, and Sunday's Stool Pigeon! See website for more.
