Tonight, Saturday May 17th, almost a month after local comic Kat Ramzinski was brutally attacked, join a stellar group of Austin comedians as they come together to celebrate the strength and resolve of the hilarious Kat Ramzinski with a roast!
Kat Roast: A Beneficial Beatdown of Kat Ramzinski features the divine Maggie Maye as roast master duties and boasts an absolutely killer lineup of Austin comics including Katie Pengra, Amber Bixby, Mike MacRae, Ramin Nazer, Brian Gaar, Cody Hustak, Lisa Friedrich, Michael Priest, Kath Barbadoro, Adam Hrabik, and Ralphie Hardesty. Norm Wilkerson organized the so-called ‘beneficial beatdown’ to help ease the pain Ramzinski suffered at the hands of a group of muggers with the healing power of laughter (oh, and donations).
This promises to be a hilarious, one-of-a-kind event filled with laughter and love. Here’s more from the event’s page on Facebook:
On April 20th our friend, esteemed colleague, and local comedian, Kat Ramzinski, was brutally attacked by 3 males and one female assailants with gruesome intent. Like the strong, fearless woman we know her to be, Kat fought back and survived the attack with very serious injuries.
On Saturday, May 17, Spider House Ballroom celebrates this very special lady with an All-Star Austin comic line-up, in the traditional Roast style.
Please come early for the pre-show cocktail hour with DJ DoA spinning tight jams and dope beats.
Immediately following the show we encourage all to stay and pay tribute to Kat through song! DIAMOND KARAOKE will be providing the songs in which you wish to butcher into the night.
