Can I pay for my ticket at the show I attend?

All shows, BUT Cain’s Ballroom will take a cover charge at the door, depending on capacity available. If you are needing tickets to Cain’s Ballroom on day of shows, you will have to visit the Festival Box Office next door to Soundpony, not the Cain’s Ballroom Box Office.

The festival pass looks rad, but it says seating is first come first served. Say wha?

You can purchase individual tickets to any show or event during Blue Whale Comedy Festival BUT we do reserve seats at every show for festival pass holders except for ticketed only shows at Cain’s Ballroom.  

Where can I park?

You can park in paid parking anywhere in the Brady.  If it’s after 5 pm or the weekend, it’s free.  Otherwise, there’s parking at Brady St & Boulder Ave or the $2 parking garage at 1st & Main.

I don’t want to drive. What are my options?

Services like Lyft & Uber exist in Tulsa- phew.  You can also “get in the loop” on the official Downtown Tulsa bus!  The Loop is a downtown circulator service that runs on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5PM to 2AM.  The fare is $.25, or you may show the driver a downtown merchant receipt for a free ride.  Transit doesn’t get cooler than this.

Where can I buy cool festival merchandise?

You will be able to purchase merchandise at selected shows and at the Festival Box Office.
