Beto V Cruz Comedy Watch Party

  • The Brixton 1412 E 6th st. Austin, TX (map)

Are we going to vote in November? You BETO believe it!

Join us for a Beto O'Rourke /Cruz debate watch party and comedy showcase to benefit SAFE, a local organization that provides support to victims of sexual and domestic abuse. Come watch the debate, cheer on El Paso’s own, Beto O’Rourke and his vision for the future of Texas, and laugh at Ted Cruz’s feeble attempt to appear human. Keep the laughs going with an all-woman comedy showcase afterward. 

Admission is a $5 suggested donation or any item from the list below. We'll be showing the debate on the projector, followed by a stand up showcase featuring some of the funniest women in Austin! We'll also be raffling prizes from some of your favorite east side haunts like The BrixtonThe LibertyKing Bee8 Track, and more!

Let's party and show these bastards that we will not be silenced!
