Here’s What’s at the Auburn Ave Theater This Month!


Friday April 12, 7:30pm
April Comedy at the Ave
Auburn Avenue Theater | $18/$15
Comedy Night at the Ave will keep you laughing all night long as three comedians work to twist your funny bone. The April headliner is Damonde Tschritter. Damonde was hailed in the Globe & Mail as “Comedy’s new super hero.” He is the only Canadian to win the Seattle International Comedy Competition in its thirty-three year history. He’s had comedy specials on multiple networks and The Seattle Times says “He has the rare gift to command the audience’s attention merely by talking.” It’s like getting to hang out with the funny guy in the kitchen at a party. You can also hear him on Just For Laughs radio on Sirius XM.
Comedy at the Ave is for ages 18 and over only.

AveKids: Caspar Babypants
Auburn Avenue Theater | $10
Get ready to party with Caspar Babypants! Sing and dance along with one of the most popular children’s performers in the Northwest.  Chris Ballew, aka Caspar Babypants, is known by some as the lead singer and songwriter for The Presidents of the United States of America, the rock and roll band that sings about a frog, a kitty, a dune buggy, peaches and a lump. These days he is making music for kids and their parents as Caspar Babypants, and in doing so he has found a musical expression that truly feels comfortable and natural. Join Caspar Babypants for an afternoon of fun, giggles and great music.
