  • Brand New Improv Troupe — This dynamic duo will channel the Living Spirit of Montage(ish) Improv as they step into the unknown!

Tickets to Improv Comedy Night Showcase on January 21 here!


10 pm: An Open Mic without the mic that allows performers to use the whole stage or just a part of it to perform a maximum of 5 minutes of anything. No Shames of old have witnessed magicians, sketches, readings, stand-ups, storytellers, dancers, performance artists, and musicians.

Austin No Shame has two simple rules:

  1. No hurting the Stage, and
  2. No hurting any one in the audience.

Come join Austin’s best  incubator of creativity: No Shame.
