The Rude Pundit Live in Washington, DC on Sunday, January 18:
The Rude Pundit will be appearing at the District of Columbia Arts Center as part of the very funny Jeff Kreisler's righteous and hilarious Comedy Against Evil show. As one of several performers that night (which means the blow-up dolls are staying home), the Rude Pundit will be doing an original, non-blogged piece written for the occasion. Just one part of a full evening of gettin' yer liberal ya-ya's out.

The details: the DCAC is at 2438 18th Street NW. The show starts at 7:30, and tickets are $15. Call 202-462-7833 for reservations and tix.

It's a small place, so let's sell it out, have a kickass time at the show, and head to a bar after to toast the inauguration properly.

The Rude Pundit's other comedy gig, as one of the writers for Lizz Winstead's Shoot the Messenger, will be on display as Winstead and the rest of the gang bring the show to the Arlington Cinema 'n Drafthouse. It's Wake Up World, the mock morning talk show from the creator of The Daily Show and a bunch of crazed comics, writers, and actors. We rocked the house in Minneapolis during the Republican Convention, and now we're doing it near the Capital.

The details: The Drafthouse is at 2903 Columbia Pike in Arlington. The shows are on Friday and Saturday, January 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.
