Polarizing podcast star and Austinite Joe Rogan appears to have finally found a home for his planned comedy club in a prime Austin location at the historic Ritz Theater on 320 East Sixth St, according to city property filings and applications.
The new club will be titled the Comedy Mothership, according to a signing permit filed by the group. The news comes after Rogan's plans to open a club at the One World Theatre in West Austin fell through last spring.
At nearly 100 years old, the historic Ritz building has worn many hats as a Sixth Street entertainment hub—it's been host to countless film showings and been home to a comedy troupe and music venues before it was repurposed into an Alamo Drafthouse from 2007-2021.
The venue was bought by the Rogan-linked Asylum Real Estate Holdings in November 2021 after the Drafthouse closed the location. The business is managed by Matthew Lichtenberg, Rogan's representative who represents Level Four Business Management in California.
The entity has filed an application to Austin's Historic Landmark Commission, with a new signage permit set to be discussed on the commission's Feb. 28 meeting under the "Comedy Mothership" title.
That new sign is set to replace the Alamo signage as the group plans to renovate the building to more closely resemble its original design, with a new canopy and roll-down gate expected to be installed as well, according to a Towers report.
Aside from the Monday meeting, there is no timeline on when entertainers—perhaps including Rogan himself—will make their way on the new Comedy Mothership stage. But with Rogan's well-known—or controversial—name behind its back, the club is sure to make a splash on Austin's up-and-coming comedy scene.
