CANCELED - The Coven

  • The New Movement 616 Lavaca Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

In 2007 Christopher Hitchens claimed that women aren't funny in an article in Vanity Fair. We 100% disagree and as a big "fuck you buddy!" to him, we started this open mic night.

The Coven only features Austin's most witty and talented new female comedians. What we've noticed since the mic started is that this open mic is far more entertaining than other open mics. And this is just a wild stab in the dark but maybe it's because no one has to listen to 20 guys talk about their dicks.

Every month we pick a talented Austin comedian who's really making her mark on the scene to perform as a headliner for the mic. This month our headliner is Elizabeth Spears.

Hosted by Tanya Nascimento and Lea'h Sampson.

$5 at the door!


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter your events?
Unless specifically stated above, our Austin theater is all ages and BYOB. However, if the event states that we're giving out free booze (which sometimes happens), you'll have to show a 21+ ID in order to partake. Our New Orleans theater has a full-service bar in it, so anyone 18 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Other than that, our programming tends to be PG-13 & up, so keep that in mind.

What’s your refund policy?
If you buy an online ticket, you should arrive 30 min before the start of the show to guarantee getting a seat because we also sell tickets at the door and usually have a crowd waiting for no-show seats. If you don't arrive at least 10 min before the show, your seats could be given out to people on our waiting list, and if that happens, you will not be entitled to a refund as we don't offer refunds after the show has started.

This show is presented by talent from The New Movement, the nerve center of comedy in the Gulf South. TNM is a duo of bustling conservatories that train the best comedians in New Orleans and Austin, it's an aggressive programming machine that held over 1200 shows across 50 cities in 2015, it's an event production company that produces festivals, workshops, and tours like Hell Yes Fest and the Air Sex Championships, and it's a never-ending hustle to put the south on the comedy map. In New Orleans, arrive early for the show and grab a drink at our patio bar, Rosewood. In Austin, come early to chill in our downtown lobby lounge and meet the best comedians around.
