DC Comedy Club Cancels Show by Alex Stein After Heckling of AOC at Capitol

The D.C. Arts Center, located in the Adams Morgan restaurant and nightclub district in Northwest, Washington, D.C., canceled a comedy show by Alex Stein set for Thursday night over Stein’s heckling of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on the steps of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

Stein informed his fans about the cancellation, saying that he would instead perform at the Capitol at 9:30 p.m. EDT Thursday.

“Omg @AOC got the @dcartscenter to Cancel my Comedy Show tonight! Full refund for the people that bought Tickets! If you still want to see me perform come to The Capitol tonight at 9:30pm!”

Leftist reporter Pablo Manriquez, who interviewed Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday night after the heckling, reported on the D.C. Arts Center’s statement:

SCOOP: DC Arts Center, the venue where racist troll Alex Stein was scheduled to give his comedy routine, has cancelled tonite’s performance after Stein sexually harassed @AOC yesterday on the House steps…Statement from DC Arts Center: In light of recent events brought to our attention, and our inability as a small non-profit to provide the level of security…we have made the decision to cancel tonight’s performance.”

Stein was stopped and checked out by Capitol Police Wednesday–even though he had broken no law by heckling Ocasio-Cortez–after pressure from House Democrat leadership. Ocasio-Cortez told reporters Thursday her staff called Capitol Police five times about Stein. Police said Stein had not broken the law and had no warrants out for his arrest.

“Inside Capitol just now, Rep. AOC asked to speak with “female and LGBT” reporters to warn us that the man who harassed her is affiliated with credentialed news outlet. She said her staff called Capitol police 5x to get them to do something.”
