New Year's Eve Comedy Show with Will Durst & Friends
7PM Show SOLD OUT. THERE ARE STILL TICKETS FOR 10PM SHOW. Political satirist Will Durst, Bay Area favorite Johnny Steele, and other special guests present The Big Fat Year End Kiss Off Comedy Show: a hilarious show of standup comedy, improvisation and loosely written sketches based on skewering the major news events of 2011. Guaranteed to be an entertaining evening of mocking, taunting and scoffing with taste and precision. Will's abiding motto is "You can't make stuff up like this" and offers a unique blend of comedy for people who read, or know someone who does. The New York Times calls him "possibly the best political comic in the country. What better way to end the year than with a gaggle of irreverent jokesters at the top of their game in a live comedy show?
2 Shows: 7 pm & 10 pm (late show includes champagne toast & interactive balloon drop)
Reigning as C-SPAN's favorite comic (8 appearances,) Durst is a 5-time Emmy nominee and recipient of 7 consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year. He is the first comic invited to perform at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and the first American to be nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the show "Myth America." He has racked up more than 400 television appearances in 14 different countries while slinging jokes around the globe in his one man crusade to make people laugh out loud on purpose against their will. Hobbies include the never-ending quest for the perfect cheeseburger, while his heroes remain the same as when he was twelveThomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny.
"Quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today."
