Frequently Asked questions
We’re located in Downtown Nashville (1.3 miles from city center), just blocks from the Broadway strip and along I-40 inside the historic Marathon Village building.
The below information is only applicable for evening performances (6pm or later). Unfortunately we do not have access to the parking lots for daytime performances and classes. Those lots are pay lots before 6pm. We recommend finding some of the limited free street parking around the area.
We’re happy to offer free parking in two different parking lots, as well as free street parking (adhere to portions of the street that have no parking signs). See the image below for the location of the free lot parking. If you pull into the large lot and there is a parking attendant on duty, simply show your ticket or purchase receipt for your ticket on your phone for the show tonight and the attendant will waive your parking fee. If there is no attendant, you can use your phone to secure free parking in the pay lot by following these instructions:
1) Text “marathon” to 833-871-1605
2) Click the link texted to you
3) Enter the first 3 characters of your license plate number
4) Enter in promo code LAUGH
Yes, The Bar at Third Coast, which opens an hour before showtime and stays open at least an hour after the last performance of the night. We have a full bar which includes liquor, beer, and wine. We also serve Coca-Cola products, energy drinks, and more.

Nope. Our theater is open to all ages. However, many of our shows contain adult content. If you have questions regarding a specific performance, refer to the show description on the website or reach out to us directly.
Third Coast is proud to offer a large range of shows from stand-up and sketch to improv and variety shows. We have kid-friendly programming on the 2nd Saturday morning of each month (Gnu Tales).
Our improv performances are 100% unscripted and improvised on the spot with the help of audience suggestions. Therefore, we can not guarantee the level of adult-content. That being said, most of our improv shows, especially our house team improv shows (Third Coast Comedy Show, Freak Pony, Cherry Bomb, You Had to Be There) tend to be PG-13. If you have questions regarding a specific show, please reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, our theater, bar, and the Marathon Village building is wheelchair accessible and most of the entrances to the building do not involve any stairs.
