Comedians from Austin, Dallas, and San Marcos are out for laughs at the Globe Theatre's "An Evening With Comedy" on January 24. Leading the lineup is "Funniest Person in Austin" 2018 semifinalist Josh Castro. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the historic Bertram venue.

El Paso native Castro imbues his comedy with anecdotes from growing up in the border town as a third-generation Mexican-American. It was a weird experience, according to the comic.

“I’m too white to be Mexican; I’m too Mexican to be white,” he said.

The January 24 lineup also features Samantha Rae López, Colton Dowling, Romey Rome, Aira Juliet, and Zach Busby. Sam Noorani is the host.

The show is for ages 18 and older. General admission tickets are $10 — cash only — at the theater the night of the event. Doors open at 7 p.m. Concessions, beer, and wine are available in the lobby.

The Globe Theatre is located at 132 W. Vaughn St. in Bertram. For tickets and other upcoming events, call 512-627-3962 or visit
