ColdTowne Theater

4803-B Airport, 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.

Top Comedy Spot on Airport

Yes, there's Sugar Water Purple on Wednesday nights – look, we reviewed their show right here. And this Thursday gets all, d'awwwww, romantic AF with Old Love, improv about geezers and their coupled sweetness, and then a little Sextual Healin', featuring the extravagance, kink, and cringe-worthiness of some of our least favorite works of erotic writing. Friday brings Movie Riot and the laugh-inducing ladies of Loverboy and that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar. Then Saturday offers you a bit of, ah, orientation, with Starring Y'all We Asian putting some much-needed color in the lead of improvised Hollywood blockbusters, followed by a gathering of that mysterio-comedic Midnight Society.
