It’s our first show in our first season and the start of the first ever Joe’s Pub Series outside of New York, and we invite you to attend!

Come celebrate the kickoff of Lott Entertainment Presents and the Joe’s Pub Series in Houston at MATCH with New York’s hottest cabaret performers, Bridget Everett. Named the “most exciting performer in New York City” by The Village Voice, Bridget is a mainstay at Joe’s Pub at the Public in New York where she performs regularly to sold out audiences.

Hot off the heels of her new Comedy Central special Gynecological Wonder, her guest appearance in the Oddball Comedy Tour with Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer and a jaw-dropping appearance in this summer’s blockbuster Trainwreck, New York’s downtown darling will hit the Houston stage and armed with a bottle (or two) of chardonnay as well as the songs and stories that have been captivating sold-out audiences at Joe’s Pub.

The show runs November 4-7, but we would love to celebrate with you at our opening night + launch party on November 4. Tickets are $100 for individuals or $500 for a table of four which includes a bottle of bubbly.
