Started in the ruins of a strip club at the height of the StandUp boom of the 80’s, The Velveeta Room has lasted for 2 decades in the volatile environment of 6th street in Austin, TX. 2 shows Friday and 2 shows Saturday highlight some of the best comedy from Austin, from all over Texas, and beyond. Thursday night is Open Mic night.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
