Aug. 5, 2015 By Michael Florio

It’s a political party.

Q.E.D., the Astoria venue that often hosts comedy shows at its 27-16 23rd Ave location, is screening the Republican debate this Thursday and is bringing in a few comics to spice up the event.

The venue describes the upcoming debate as a “three ring circus,” and said it is planning to add to the hilarity by bringing in comedians such as Frank Conniff to provide commentary during the evening.

Conniff, host of the monthly show Cartoon Dump at Q.E.D., will be one of the commentators.

Conniff is best known for his role as TV’s Frank on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Joining Conniff will be comedian John Fugelsang, who hosts Tell Me Everything, a show on SiriusXM, where he shares his views on politics, the media and more.

The debate, which begins at 9 p.m., will be screened on two large HD televisions and features the top 10 candidates vying for the Republican Party nomination.

Tickets are $8, which includes one drink and one slice of pizza.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
