2024 Funniest Person In Austin - Preliminary Round

The 2024 Funniest Person in Austin contest begins this summer! Armed with only their own original material, more than 250 aspiring comics will throw their hats in the ring to compete for the title of Austin's Funniest Person and take home the $3,000 prize.


We are an 18+ venue.


Instead of a drink minimum, we have a two-item per person minimum in the Showroom, which can be fulfilled with any food or drink items from the menu.

Please Note: Food and drinks purchased in the bar and lounge do not count towards the two-item minimum.


  • General Admission seating is assigned on a first-come, first-sat basis as you enter the showroom. The earlier you arrive, the better your seats will be.

  • Balcony seating is available for our Main Showroom events. It is general admission on our second-floor balcony. The earlier you arrive, the better your seats will be.

  • Reserved seats are assigned for you by management on the night of the show. They are the best seats available for your party size at the time they are assigned. We recommend purchasing Reserved tickets in a single transaction to guarantee your group is seated together.

Please Note: We do not take seating requests and cannot guarantee seats in a specific location.


  • While we cannot guarantee seats together, General admission groups should arrive at least 45 minutes before showtime and enter the showroom as a group for the best chance of being seated together.

  • Reserved groups who purchase tickets in a single order will automatically be assigned seating together. Reserved ticket holders who purchase separately are not guaranteed seating together. Please see your email confirmation for details if your group purchased separately.

Please Note: We will only seat complete groups. Your group must enter the showroom together to be seated together. In addition, we do not take seating requests and cannot guarantee you seats in a specific location.


All sales are final. We do not offer refunds or exchanges.


Our Main showroom and Upstairs showroom are fully accessible. Call our box office for more information. We encourage all patrons who have a disability to reach out to us to make accommodations.

Please Note: Our Balcony does not have an accessible entrance.


Ticket protection is insurance that allows you to cancel your order to receive a venue credit toward a future event. It can be added to most orders at the time of purchase but cannot be added after the order has been placed.

To redeem your Ticket Protection and receive a venue credit toward a future event, please send an email to protection@heliumcomedy.com with your order number no less than 24 hours before showtime.

Please Note: Cancelation requests received via phone, chat, or less than 24 hours before showtime will not be accepted.
