Don’t say Rick Perry never did anything for you.
Comedy Central has announced that anchor Jon Stewart is bringing “The Daily Show” to our city for a week’s worth of shows. Covering the upcoming midterm elections, “Democalypse 2014: South by South Mess” will be taped at ZACH Theatre, 202 South Lamar Blvd. and air nightly at 10 p.m. from Monday, October 27 through Thursday, October 30, the cable network announced.
The shows will feature news and analysis on heated races across the country from host Jon Stewart as well as reports from “The Best (Expletive) News Team Ever!” a press release says.
Ticket requests should be made through “The Daily Show’s” website, http://thedailyshow.cc.com/tickets, not through the ZACH’s box office.
