The Velv Comedy Lounge

When it comes to standup comedy, the best indicator of success is making your fellow comics laugh. Formerly the Velveeta Room, the Velv is maybe the most important stage for Austin comics to develop their material in front of fellow comics at the weekly open mic. The space is tight with only a handful of tables, so the the atmosphere is incredibly intimate and the comedy is up-close and personal. Depending on the night, you may see veteran touring comedians or local up-and-comers. Either way, you're sure to have a great night of laughs.
