We are The Secret Group, a comedy venue opening this summer in East Downtown Houston. Started by a group of local comics, we hope to bring stellar comedy inside the loop.
So far we’ve been booking acts at existing venues like Warehouse Live, Beta Theater and Boondocks: acts include Iliza Schlesinger, Pete Holmes, Tom Segura, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kyle Kinane, Sasheer Zamata, Michael Che, Kurt Braunohler Henry Philips, and Cameron Esposito. Just in May we had David Cross and Janeane Garofalo perform at Warehouse Live.
We also own the Come and Take It Comedy Take Over, a comedy festival that in two years of operation has seen acts including Norm MacDonald, TJ Miller, Maria Bamford, The Whitest Kids You Know, The Broken Lizard Crew, Eric Andre, Eugene Mirman, Brian Posehn, Ron Funches, Todd Barry, Kevin McDonald, Duncan Trussell and many other stellar acts. If you are a comedy fan you should know most of these names.
At this point we're roughly a month out from being able to open. We're coming to you for two reasons: First, we want this place to be awesome, and with a little help from you we can upgrade the venue with more amenities, furniture, and collaborative works from local artists to build it out the way we envision it.
Second, we want to get Houstonians involved now. We want the word to spread, we want people to get excited, and we want you to start making plans to come here.
So to start we've got some rewards to offer you for helping us out. Not just combinations of swag and tickets, but interesting ways for us to get involved in making you laugh. Take a look at the rewards and if you can think of a combination of stuff or a different package you would like, let us know and we will see if we can get it for you! Also come back and check out new rewards we will be posting in the coming weeks!
