The Creek & The Cave existed for 14 years in NYC until the pandemic made it impossible to continue. Instrumental in advancing the careers of countless comedians and artists (Donald Glover, Tim Dillon, Kevin Barnett, Sara Benincasa), it was a sad day when she turned in the keys.
The Creek & The Cave will occupy the space that was formerly Barracuda (611 E 7th Street) and will provide a full drink menu and food offerings. The club has entrances on 7th street and in the back, and has both an indoor and outdoor stage.
Trent promises, “The Austin comedy scene has always been a wonderful and magical place to hone the craft and, as the scene grows and becomes more robust, we want to build a true clubhouse to serve as a place all comics can call home.” Trent adds, “We will be providing a platform for the up and coming local comedians, as well as exposing them to big name headliners. Part Master Class, part Dojo, part club, and all funny”
The soft opening is set for April 1st 2021. “We are excited to get the club open and show Austin and what we’ve done to the place and what we have to offer.” says Dowling.
