The Ticket LIVE: Let’s End the 2016 Election with a Little Humor

Miguel Gutierrez Jr./KUT News
Local comedians from ColdTowne Theater perform a debate skit at The Ticket's live show at KLRU's studio 6A.

This week, the Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott taped before a crowd at KLRU's historic studio 6A, former host of the iconic TV show "Austin City Limits."

While the crowd was waiting on the third presidential debate, we wanted to go beyond the debate and even the election to talk about the future of the Republican and Democratic parties in Texas. So we'll talk with Burnt Orange Report Publisher Lize Burr and Deirdre Delisi of Delisi Communications about what happens next after this brawl of a campaign.

And because we know some people have been a little stressed out by this election, we invited some local comedians to lighten the mood with some debate humor.
