According to the outlet The Austin Towers, the historic Ritz Theater at 320 East Sixth Street will soon host the comedy club linked to Joe Rogan, the documents in a number of local property filings and an application to the city’s Historic Landmark Commission, there’s also listed a permit seeking to install new signage at the front of the building on the consent agenda of the commission’s upcoming, with backup documents for the renovation item using the name Comedy Mothership, now confirmed by Joe Rogan on a podcast with comedian Tony Hinchcliffe.

Previous reports indicated that Rogan planned to open a comedy club in West Austin, but his acquisition of the One World Theatre eventually fell through, with East Sixth Street mentioned last year as a new potential location for the club. The Ritz property was purchased from previous owners Craddock Properties in November 2021 by Asylum Real Estate Holdings, a company managed by Rogan’s representative Matthew Lichtenberg of Level Four Business Management in Los Angeles. Lichtenberg, along with Rogan and his wife Jessica, is also the director of a recently-incorporated entity known as the Rogan Family Foundation, Inc.
