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.
Yes, there's Sugar Water Purple
on Wednesday nights. And this Thursday features Friends For Now
, a daring and delightful supergroup of improv. Friday brings Movie Riot
and the laugh-inducing ladies of Loverboy
and that Live at ColdTowne
stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar
. Then there's Saturday, with the Dave Buckman
-directed Roast of St. Nick
and the love-stinks larking of Missed Connections ATX
, followed by a gathering of that mysterio-hilarious Midnight Society
. And Sunday's got a Stool Pigeon
spieling up the laughs for you, and – see website for more.
