The Night Before Midterms show 11/5!
'Twas the night before midterms, when as pundits groused,
Not a district was swinging, in the Senate or the House.
The ballots were filled out by the people with care,
In hopes that the candidates would answer their prayers.
The voters nestled (not so?) snug in their beds,
With visions of colored waves, whether in blues or reds.
It’s the day before the day we’ve been waiting for.
Up Close and Political, the show where comedians do stand-up on big issues followed by a discussion with experts and the audience, is back.
And while fans will note we already had a midterms show, this show is 12 hours before polls open - so what else were we going to talk about, really?
So as usual, we’ll have stand-up on the topic followed by a discussion with experts and you, the audience. We’ll have people from across the political spectrum:
* Felicia Folkes - seen on Comedy Central and profiled in LA Weekly!
* Julianne Simitz - writer at Jimmy Kimmel Live and a former political organizer!
* Adam Yenser - writer for Ellen and Politicon's Best New Political Comic!
Plus an open discussion with Gar Culbert, political science professor at CSU-Los Angeles!
Hosted by Toby Muresianu of Comedy Central's Roast Battle.
The show is at 7:30pm at the Hollywood Improv Comedy Club, 8162 Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. Street parking is available and free after 8, or there is a valet option as well.
Tickets are just $5 - get yours today!
