Performer Passes

Each performer receives a free pass to two OoB shows (including headliners). You can upgrade to an all-access pass here.

Registration Hours

At registration you will receive your performer badge (or upgraded pass), your t-shirt, program, & performer welcome info packet. Please note that if an individual arranges to pick up the badges, etc… for your entire group, those individuals WILL NOT be able to pick it separately.

Also, at this time, you can purchase performer upgrades.

Tues – 6:30pm – 9pm

Fri – 4pm – 9pm 
Sat – 2pm – 7pm

Downtown Hotel Discount

We’re happy to announce our discounted hotel rate for the year 2014. Located in the heart of downtown Austin, The Courtyard Marriott is within walking distance of five of our venues: The Hideout Theatre, The New Movement, The Velveeta Room, The Long Center and the Stateside.

The Courtyard Marriott is located at 300 E 4th St. Austin, TX. 78701

The discount is applicable August 27th through September 2nd.

Don’t delay! The deadline to book is July 30th.

Alternative Housing

One of the best things about OoB is the Austin Improv’s supportive community. If you’re interested in housing, join the Austin Improv forum or Facebook group and get to know us!

The Firehouse Hostel is also a great choice, located directly next to The Hideout Theatre and near most of the venues. If your group stays in the same common room or suite, you could all bunk together for dirt cheap.

Transportation Details are still being finalized.
For now, here are the basics:

Airport Rides

Each year, the Out of Bounds Comedy offers complimentary airport rides to and from the airport. These rides are by request only.
Please email by August 10th to request a ride.

Bus Schedule

Use Google maps or for the most accurate info. A venues page with correct addresses will be listed soon.


Thurs-Mon, you should be able to find pedicabs (bicycle taxis) roaming around downtown. They are fun and safe. There is no set charge but most cab drivers prefer at least $5 per person. Tip well, they work hard and are usually very nice. In fact, many of our improvisers have been pedicabbers in the past.

Yellow Cab: (512) 452-9999
Lonestar Cab: (512) 836-4900
