Check It Out: Cap City Comedy Club

Here at Do512, we all love a good laugh, delicious bar food, and “true” Austin venues, which is why we want to give a HUGE shout out to Capitol City Comedy Club, an Austin entertainment staple that has made a name for itself as a local comedic hot spot. Cap City has successfully established itself as THE perfect place to chuckle along with established comedians, chow down on some delicious pub-grub food, and enjoy a complete open bar while you’re at it.

Voted as 2009’s “Best Comedy Club to Play” at the Rooftop Comedy Awards in Aspen, this Austin comedy club has played host to some of the most well-known national headliners (in killer sell-out shows) while still catering to Austin’s “home-grown” talent. Not only does the club throw events like the “Funniest Person in Austin” and Sunday “Open Mic” nights (which are FREE for college students) to showcase local talent, but they also pride themselves in supporting the Austin community through events that benefit local charities. Every Sunday “Open Mic” night, the club donates part of the admission fee to the Austin’s Children’s Shelter, and they also host “Community Nights” every Thursday, with a food drive benefiting the Austin Food Bank. With 2 canned food items getting you in the club FOR FREE, there’s simply no reason not to head down to Cap City (either of these nights) and be entertained while supporting the Austin community. Located right off Research Blvd in the North Lamar/Anderson area, Cap City captures the down-to-earth Austin spirit by not coddling “comedian-groupies” or “pretentious types”, and instead, exists purely to cater to the entertainment of its audience and to showcase the amazing talent that walks through their doors.

Some KILLER upcoming events that will be passing through Cap City include:

December 1-5: Matt Bearden (with Shannon Paul)

December 11-13: D.L. Hughley

December 15-19: Matt Sadler (with Trey Galyon)

December 29-January 2: Juston McKinney (with Bryson Turner)

January 6-9: Ryan Hamilton (with Bryan Gutman)

January 13-16: Matt Braunger (with Matt Willis)

And there’s SO much more to look forward to!
