Cap City Comedy Reopening!

Cap City is getting ready to raise the curtains! We can't wait to have you and our favorite comedians back. We are restarting the comedy along while implementing city and state guidelines for patrons, staff, and comedians in order to provide an environment that is as safe as possible.

We have made some BIG changes so here is what to expect - please read carefully:

  • Reduced capacity along with social distancing in accordance with local guidelines. To ensure social distancing, customers will be asked to keep a minimum of 6' between groups while entering showroom. Customers will be seated by a host at preselected reserved tables strategically positioned 6’ apart. No one will be seated with guests that are not in their party.
  • Heightened cleaning protocols. All "touch surfaces” will be sanitized before and after shows, and will be sanitized continuously throughout the evening.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be visible throughout the club and we encourage patrons to bring their own sanitizers as well.
  • “Touch free” temperatures for all staff, customers and comedians will be checked and must be under 100 degrees to enter the building. Customers who have temperatures and/or not feeling well are kindly asked to not attend performances.
  • Masks/face coverings will be worn by all staff. We highly encourage patrons to bring and wear their own masks/face coverings upon arrival and when not seated at their table.
  • At this time we are only accepting credit cards as forms of payment.
  • Disposable Food and Drink menus will be provided. No modifications will be allowed and single use condiments will be available upon request.
  • Until further notice, only tables will be sold available only through advanced online purchases and will be reserved seating. Cap City staff will assign seating based upon time of purchase and size of party. Until further notice, single tables will not be available. At this time, maximum table size is four.
  • Cap City Lounge will be closed to the public as only our showroom is expansive enough to ensure safe social distancing between parties. For the foreseeable future, there will be no Cap City or Comedian merchandise and/or meet and greets.

Cap City is committed to CDC guidelines as well the City of Austin , State of Texas rules for reopening. As always if you are exhibiting symptoms of any illness, please stay home and get better. To find out more please visit The CDC Website.
