Tragedy plus time equals comedy.

If the tragedy happens to a comedian, is it never too soon? How about, say, 72 hours, then.

Here’s a local news report from Wednesday’s broadcast of KXAN-TV.

And here is how Ramzinski opened her set Wednesday night at the Moontower Comedy Festival.

“Yes, I met ‘the one,'” Ramzinski quipped to explain her swollen eye socket. Roll the clip to watch a few more minutes:
