Marga Gomez (voted 2012 Best Comedian SF Bay Guardian and the SF Weekly) returns to La Peña two nights only for a supercharged stand up comedy performance guaranteed to bury the hopes of the Republican Right and send Mitt Romney’s career to a better place on ‘Day Of The Dead Republican,’ also referred to as “No Souls Day” by disaffected youth.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Oct 17th, 2012 11:49 AM
Borrowing from Latino ritual, Marga Gomez will construct an altar for Mitt Romney’s dead career with offerings of his favorite foods-- Jell-O, boiled potatoes, lemons, decaf coffee, used magic underpants, a lock from Paul Ryan’s widow’s peak. And tied to the top an adorable Irish Setter. The audience is welcome to contribute to the shrine with offerings of whatever: wilted flowers, scissors, food stamps, tequila and four loco even if it’s a non Mormon approved substance. Marga Gomez will collect it all after the show. Marga will also conduct a candlelight procession around the block to say good riddance to Mitt Romney. The best Day of The Dead outfit in the audience will be awarded for prizes up to $5,000 depending on the scratch off ticket.
