Riot Comedy is bringing the much-needed laughs to Houston this season. Hosted by beloved neighborhood bar, Rudyard’s Pub, The Riot Comedy Show series is set to feature an array of hysterical stand-ups that will leave you in stitches.
Stand-up comedy is back, baby. And while the drive-in comedy circuit and Zoom shows were a good, well-intentioned effort to keep the industry and artists afloat, neither holds a candle to seeing stand-up comedy in the flesh.
This summer, Rudyard’s Pub in Montrose is setting the stage for a wickedly funny line-up of stand-up comedians. Beginning Friday, June 25, you can swing down to Rudyard’s where things are kicking off at 7:30 pm with a hilarious show headlined by Jasmine Ellis, who’s appeared on Moontower Comedy festival, 10,000 Laughs, and other mainstream comedy festivals.
Tickets for the show start at $15 for one.
Featured performances also include sets from comedian and illustrator Erik Bergstrom, who’s special landed him on Comedy Central Half Hour and has made appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and MTV. His illustrated cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker and his book Grimmer Tales is now available on book shelves across the country. Tickets to his shows on July 17 start at $20. VIP options are also available for both of his performances that night at 7:30 pm and 10 pm, respectively, start at $55 for a table for two.
In addition to other headlining comedians including Conan, MTV, and Comedy Central feature Nore Davis, as well as Late Night with Seth Meyers and Last Comic Standing contender, Greg Warren, and co-headliners Dustin Nickerson and Zoltan Kaszas, The Riot will also feature a number of themed shows.
On July 1 at 7:30 pm, you can learn all about dating and relationships (with a comedic twist) at Live, LAUGH, Love with Jeff Joe, MC Lotto, Dan Pyatetsky, and more. At 10 pm that night, you can also gear up for Fourth of July with Patrick Eady’s American AF show alongside other military veterans. Or, if you’ve ever felt the urge to heckle at a comedy show – but have rightly not done so – you can live vicariously through Tre Tutson, who will be heckling a group of hand-selected comedians during their sets in hilarious fashion a The Interruption on July 15.
