Cap City Comedy Club has spent 27 years cooking up laughs with a diverse, rotating lineup of local and touring comedians. Upcoming showcases spotlight such acts as Austinite Doug Mellard (July 5–7), who hits the stage with a rapid-fire, physical brand of comedy. During one show, the semifinalist of Last Comic Standing told one-liners while stage diving; in other bits he crashed a college class to serenade its students and threw a roast for a newborn baby. Currently, fans can see Baron Vaughn (July 11–14) as the geeky assistant on the USA Network's Fairly Legal. He also recently displayed his exaggerated delivery style on Conan, where the frequent flier confessed his pursuit of "statistical immunity," as well as his befuddlement over a hate group with a sophisticated website. Another recent guest on Conan, Sean Patton (July 18–21) discusses such topics as how his belly and his owl-like features have been blessings rather than burdens for his love life. While audiences chuckle along, they can refuel stomach tanks with nachos, wings, burgers, or beverages from the menu.
Though Cap City Comedy Club sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
