Additional Information About Attending Shows at DCC:

  • Please allow yourself enough time to get to Deep Ellum and find parking. There is often traffic and parking is not always easy. DO NOT PARK AT TERRY BLACK’S — they will tow!
  • To enter the venue, come to the glass bar door on Elm Street.
  • We do not allow outside food or beverage in.
  • Please note that we will be checking IDs and searching bags.
  • We will start lining up and checking in guests about 30 minutes prior to showtime.
  • Seating is first come, first served, so get your ENTIRE party in line as soon as you can!
  • Parties will be ushered to their seats. Please stay in your assigned seats.
  • There is a two-item minimum per person. Feel free to come early and eat and drink on the patio. You can order at the bar or in the theater with our servers, all items count towards the two-item minimum.
  • You will not receive a bill at the end of the show. You can close out at the bar on your way out, or since it will be very busy, you can leave and we will close your bill for you and add a 20% gratuity at the end of the night.

Thank you for supporting live comedy and our small business! See you at the show!


Is DCC 21+ only?

DCC is 18+ until 10PM and 21+ after 10PM. Any show starting after 9PM will be for 21+ patrons only.

Where do I park when I come to DCC?

DCC is located at 3036 Elm Street Dallas, TX 75226, at the corner of Elm and Hall. Unfortunately the club does not have its own parking lot and we do not offer valet services. We recommend using ride share for convenience and the ability to imbibe without worrying about consequences. If that is not an option for your party, Deep Ellum has multiple parking options, including paid lots, street parking, and meters, which can be paid for with coins or via the ParkMobile app. Parking can be a bit tricky, and Deep Ellum is serious about enforcing parking rules, so we suggest arriving at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your show to give yourself ample time to park and get to the theater on time. DO NOT PARK in the bank parking lot (behind DCC) or any of the Terry Black’s parking lots – you will get towed and that is completely out of our hands!

Do you serve food and drinks in the theaters?

Yes! We have a full bar and food menu, and our servers can bring anything you need right to your table. We recommend arriving a little early so you can get a great seat and order from the menu before the lights go down. To view our food menu, click here.

Can I book a private party or event at DCC?

Yes, AND! DCC has multiple spaces available for private parties or events. We have two theaters, a massive patio space, a VIP Club House, and four training rooms available to fulfill your individual or corporate needs. We can even provide the entertainment! Let us help you plan the perfect event. To submit an event inquiry, click here. For private children’s parties, click here.

What is an improv jam?

Improv jams are open to the public, and no experience is required! Think of a jam as a mash-up between a social event and an improv show. Jams are a great way to brush up on your improv skills and meet fellow improvisors. They’re also great for first-timers who want to get a taste of the fun! Participation isn’t required but definitely encouraged. Come join us! DCC hosts one weekly jam:

The Club Team Jam: Every Wednesday @ 7:30PM. This jam is hosted by a rotating cast of DCC’s instructors.
