Why? Because gambling on a show sucks. Bad music, bad movies, bad comedy - no bueno. You don't want to watch some ham-fisted amateur flop-sweat all over a stage while your date stares at the exit. So we're committed to being great. Every time.
You don't have to take our word for it, though. Here's SPLITSIDER.COM:
"Say hypothetically you can only get to one show a week: make it PUNCH."
PUNCH began as Austin's very first showcase-style show. That meant the best acts, doing their best material, week after week. That's how we became a "thing". After 222 shows we cut the lights and packed it in. But the weird thing is, the fans never went away; they kept in touch and kept asking for more. So, a full two years later, we finally decided to listen, and re-launched the best show in the city.
