Kat Ramzinski performs at Moontower after being mugged

Tragedy plus time equals comedy.

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

Exhibit A for Austin: Kat Ramzinski. In the flesh. Ramzinski was mugged and stabbed while walking to her neighborhood grocery store last Sunday night. Four assailants allegedly punched her in the face and slashed her hand, taking her purse.

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:
