Tuesday Night Laughs
PUNCH! video preview: Comedy's stellar Tuesday night lineup
We recently wrote about several of Austin's most consistently awesome stand up showcases, highlighting Cap City's weekly PUNCH! in particular. Hosted by Matt Bearden, the Tuesday night show features a curated lineup of local performers; we're especially excited about this week's roster, which includes the first and second place winners of the 2011 Funniest Person in Austin contest, a member of the city's most successful sketch group and two of the fastest rising local comics.
Check out some clips from the performers, and pick up a ticket early—we guarantee the show will sell out.

This Nebraska native has been touring since high school, honing his deadpan delivery and uncanny ability to make even the most absurd premise seem totally straight.

Also on the bill: Kath Barbadoro, who will be hosting The Velveeta Room every Thursday in August.
