DRINKING GAME + COMEDY
The Power Hour is an immature college drinking game where a person attempts to drink a shot OF BEER every minute for an hour.
“COMEDIAN’S POWER HOUR” is a comedy show originating in Albuquerque, NM and now with offshoots in (NYC, Denver, Texas, Florida, etc.). It involves 2 chuckle-smiths going head to head making this classic drinking game a comedy competition.
Every show is different but a typical CPH looks like this:
-BOTH COMICS START BY CHEERSING THE AUDIENCE AND TAKING A DOUBLE SHOT OF BEER
-Both chuckle-smiths trade off doing 2 minute sets of stand-up.
HOWEVER… between each set is A DOUBLE SHOT OF BEER
As the show goes on, comics run into strategically placed challenges leading to SHOTS OF LIQUOR for the losing party.
Challenges play into their intoxication level and range from:
– 2 Minutes of Doing Each Other’s Material
– Give your competitor a Best Man Speech
– Audience = a Losting Football Team, Comics = coaches. Give the Best Halftime Speech
– Etc, Etc, Etc…
You see how it goes…. Challenges change every show and usually end with something really unfit for a person who has had too much to drink (i.e. – “Describe the plot to the saddest movie you’ve ever seen without crying”)
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.
