Daily Show in Austin
On October 27, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart kicks off a week's worth of tapings at ZACH Theatre. The aptly named "Democalypse 2014: South by South Mess" will focus on the contentious races happening here in Texas, as well as the lead up to the midterm elections across the U.S.
Guests appearing on the Comedy Central show include Wendy Davis, who will appear on Monday, October 27. U.S. Representative Joaquin Castro (just one-half of everyone's favorite darling Democratic duo) will appear on Tuesday, October 28. Austin's own Spoon will round out the week appearing at the last taping on Thursday, October 30.
Though the guest star for Wednesday has yet to be announced, we do hope they ask a Republican, if only to be fair. If all else fails, there's always Willie.
Tickets for the tapings are long gone, but you can still get in on the fun. The Daily Show Podcast (without Jon Stewart) will be taping at the North Door on Sunday, October 26. Jon Stewart will also be making an appearance at the Austin Film Festival in support of his film Rosewater on October 30.
