Headlining Smile More

"Smile More! is a monthly feminist standup comedy show that’ll have the audience smiling, but not because some random dude on the street suggested it. Austin’s most unapologetically funny women break through the glass microphone to deliver big laughs. Period.

Valerie Nies hosts a curated night of comedy from a combination of veteran and beginner all-female, all-funny standup comics in this showcase that recurs the first Saturday of the month.

Grab friends, get drinks, and guffaw!

Headlining Punch!

"

We built a show we'd be willing to sit through. It's that simple.

 

Why? Because gambling on a show sucks. Bad music, bad movies, bad comedy - no bueno. You don't want to watch some ham-fisted amateur flop-sweat all over a stage while your date stares at the exit. So we're committed to being great. Every time.

You don't have to take our word for it, though. Here's SPLITSIDER.COM:

"Say hypothetically you can only get to one show a week: make it PUNCH."

The Joke of Painting

  • Spiderhouse Ballroom

"The Joke of Painting is a showcase for some of Austin's best comedians, but wait--there's a twist! These peeps are not only joke-slingers, but they paint too. Maybe not well... well some of them do, some of them might do Bansky-level shit, bro. Who knows? 

Each comic will be doing their own step-by-step demonstration on how to paint a piece of art of their choosing, with an extra dose of laughs, their jokes!!!! Comedy IS art, baby. You think you can draw too? Always painted along with Bob Ross on The Joy of Painting back in the day?? Well, guess what??? You'll be provided with all the necessary utensils to follow along with the demonstration and create your own Master Stroke. 

Sound weird? It is, weirdo! That's why you live here. It's like those painting with a glass of wine classes white ladies take, but there's comedy and whisky and cool people.

"Awww yeah! One of my all time favorite people Arielle Norman is headlining Treehouse. She has performed in Austin’s Moontower, Sound on Sound fest, FunFunFun, Out of Bounds, Houston’s Whatever Fest, and New Orlean’s Hell Yes Comedy Festival. She hosts and produces the show Off Script, a monthly showcase at the New Movement Theater where the audience is encouraged to heckle the comics. That's right you get to be apart of the action! So check out her show, it's the best, and watch her at my show because she's raw and fiercly talented, and a bunch of other nice stuff that I'm going to say to her in person because that's the best way to experience this lovely human being. :p
