A New Year’s Eve Comedy celebration made EASY & FUNNY.
The 5th Annual Stand-Up Comedy Celebration is a perfect show for New Year’s Eve in Marin. Group tables allow folks to bring their Party to a great comedy show with nothing to clean up. The evening is timed so attendees can enjoy an early dinner at a favorite restaurant before the show and time to get somewhere else for the stroke of midnight if desired.
Co-Presented with The Other Cafe Comedy Showcase, The comedy show is headlined by legendary Boston comic DON GAVIN. Don has performed in 25 different countries, at over 150 clubs and theaters, and more than 200 corporate functions just in the past three years. He has starred in several of the world’s most prominent comedy festivals, including Montreal, Melbourne, and Edinburgh.
