In August and September, Q.E.D. Astoria screened the Republican presidential debates with a twist, bringing in comedians to joke through what it called the “three ring circus.”
Next week, the Democratic candidates will get their turn.
Q.E.D., a performance and education venue located at 27-16 23rd Ave., will host a Democratic debate watch party on Tuesday. Doors open at 8 p.m.
Three comedians will provide commentary and riff on the debate while it is screened.
Frank Conniff of “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” the ‘90s-era TV show that inspired the debate party’s premise, will be joined by Myka Fox and Judy Gold for debate commentary and pre-debate comedy.
“We all want to be politically engaged, and we want to be aware of who the candidates are, and we need to have knowledge on those – but at the same time it’s so early on in the process we might as well have fun while we’re doing it,” Q.E.D. founder Kambri Crews said.
Tickets for the watch party run $8. To buy tickets, click here.
