Laugh into the New Year
In these dark times – both literally and figuratively – we could all use a good laugh, so it comes as no surprise that comedy is rapidly becoming the most popular New Year’s Eve entertainment.
The First Night of Funny proves that with a variety of stand-up comedy options on Monday night (December 31). Tickets for each of the shows are $35 in advance; $40 at the door.
