For nearly 50 years, the Improv chain has incubated standup talent—notable alumni such as Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, and Robin Williams all conquered their stage fright there before their big breaks. The Arlington location carries on the Improv’s tradition of catching rising stars before they turn into supernovas spewing dangerous molten punch lines with a calendar of up-and-comers and nationally touring talent.
Like the finale of a long-running sitcom where the leads finally kiss, Brew-HaHa marries two things that should have been together from the start: standup comedy and craft beer. Armed with a refillable pint glass, guests start the night with a brief tour of local craft breweries, including Dallas's Community Beer Company, the Lakewood Brewing Co. in Garland, and Ft. Worth's Panther Island Brewing. After getting a good fill of local nectar, everyone settles in for a set that mixes headliners seen on Comedy Central, HBO, and Showtime with some of North Texas' top jokesters. Although the lineup constantly changes, the night is always hosted by Tyson Faifer, who may or may not hang from the ceiling by his knuckles like he did on NBC's American Ninja Warrior.
The six-headed hydra of spontaneous comedy known as Four Day Weekend has been wreaking havoc on North Texas doldrums since 1997. Critically adored by the metroplex’s most prominent presses, the group squelches laughter droughts with their weekend bouts of unscripted hilarity. The professional troupe of cut-ups, many with film and Second City Conservatory of Chicago credentials, happily share the tricks of the trade in their four-level training center. Emphasizing “truth in comedy,” the curriculum covers fundamentals such as characterization and long-form improv, giving students the tools they need to extract their inner hilarity or survive an hour in a prop closet with Greg Proops.
A rotating roster of seasoned comedic pros and up-and-comers has graced the stages at Hyena's Comedy Nightclub's three locations. These featured jokesters typically perform weekend sets, leaving the space free for aspiring comics during weekly open-mic nights. The venue has also partnered with cyber-comedians for a defensive-driving course. Since not much in the rules-of-the-road canon is intentionally funny, Hyena's helps keep Texas drivers safely and legally behind the wheel with digital, state-approved, all-original tutorials written by comedians.

The crown jewel of the Dallas Arts District, the AT&T Performing Arts Center – or AT&T PAC, as it’s commonly referred to – encompasses four different venues, meaning there’s a little something for everyone. The grand Winspear Opera House, a bright red fixture in the city’s skyline, is home to the Dallas Opera and the Texas Ballet Theater, while the Wyly Theatre hosts the Dallas Theatre Center, Dallas Black Dance Theater and Ballet Folklorico. Outside, Strauss Square provides space for outdoor performances and festivals, and the sprawling Sammons Park is ten acres of green space surrounding the venues. The PAC is buzzing year-round, drawing patrons of the arts from all over the Metroplex to catch an impressive range of performances from The Book of Mormon to The Barber of Seville, and everything in-between.
