The Daily Show and Friends Take Over the Paramount Friday

Daily Show

Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal, “Resident Expert” John Hodgman, and former showrunner, executive producer, and writer Rory Albanese descend upon the Paramount Theatre in Austin tomorrow night for an evening of standup, video clips, audience participation, and a look behind-the-scenes at one of the greatest television shows of the past decade! There are still a few seats left for this one night only event that promises to entertain.

I was lucky enough to catch Mr. Madrigal when the Funny or Die Oddball tour came through town this summer and he was one of the show’s highlights. Hodgman likewise stole the show with his set at an intimate SXSW show a couple years ago. Putting these two together with departing showrunner Rory Albanese is inspired. This will be a great show.
