Upcoming Shows at Cap City Comedy Club

Cap City Comedy Club, which happens to be one of our favorite places to get some hard laughs in Austin, has charged through the beginning of 2k10 with all-star comics and stellar stand-up shows that have definitely not disappointed. As a 25-year establishment that has always offered good food, delicious drinks, and genuine chuckles, I’d say that the folks over there know what they’re doing, especially when you glance at their upcoming lineup featuring Patrice O’Neal, Maria Bamford, Kevin Nealon, and Leanne Morgan.

Patrice O’Neal: January 22-23

Getting his start at the age of 22 as a heckler put on the spot in a comedy club in Boston, Patrice O’Neal (after thankfully nailing that improv stand-up) has been a regular on both the comedy circuit and television/radio appearances ever since. This 6’5, 300+ pound man has become known for his cutting and often confrontational crowd work, getting him specials on Showtime HBO and Comedy Central Presents along with appearances on some of TV’s funniest hits like Arrested Development and The Office. With people like Ricky Gervais praising his work (once deeming O’Neal as his favorite working American comic), it’s no wonder that Patrice has also made appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Ellen Degeneres Show. Thankfully for us, O’Neal rolls into Austin THIS Friday and Saturday for a hilarious time not to be missed.

Maria Bamford: January 27-28

I’ll be the first to admit that solid female comedians are few and far between, but with Variety magazine naming Maria Bamford one of the “Top Ten Comics to Watch” alongside her multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien, it’s probably safe to say that this chick is pretty damn funny. With a long history in show biz with TV and movie appearances, Bamford has hit the comedy circuit rather successfully with hilarious portrayals of her dysfunctional family and her self-deprecating routines, incorporating various voices to represent and mock character types. Her two shows at Cap City begin NEXT week on Wednesday the 27th until Thursday the 28th.

Kevin Nealon: January 29-30

After Ms. Bamford makes you all double over, Kevin Nealon (yes, the Saturday Night Live alum) will appear at Cap City next Friday and Saturday, the 29th and 30th. Before his stint on SNL for nearly a DECADE (1986-1995), Nealon premiered in the comedy world doing a stand-up routine on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (which no doubt led him to grab the coveted SNL spot in the first place). His characters are epic– Mr. Subliminal, Franz, anchor of Weekend Update– but Nealon managed to rise above even his SNL fame to star in a number of movies (some alongside pal Adam Sandler such as Happy Gilmore, Anger Management, and Little Nicky) and TV programs (a regular on the hit show Weeds and guest roles on Curb Your Enthusiasm and Monk). With a long history of comedic appearances, Nealon’s show in Austin should NOT be missed!

Leanne Morgan: February 10-13

Right around the worst holiday ever Valentine’s Day, Cap City is offering a special holiday package so that everyone (and their dates) will come on down and see soccer mom turned comedian, Leanne Morgan, who is putting on shows at the club from Wednesday, February 10th until Saturday the 13th. As a comedian, Morgan is unique in that her recent rise to fame has come only on the heels of raising a family on a farm in rural Tennessee. Her late start to the game, however, has not hindered this Southern belle from charming audiences across the nation with her thick accent, bombshell looks, and plenty of juicy material dug up from years of housewife experience. And even though she’s still on the “up and coming” list, the hit daytime TV show The View has already honed in on her talent, featuring her in one of their hilarious housewives segments. Since being a mom is still her number one priority, Morgan’s appearances are rare, so her shows in Austin CAN NOT be missed!

All in all, Cap City is a GREAT place to get laughs and the next few weeks are showing some KILLER shows that you all should definitely attend. Head over to the website to find out more information!
