If there was ever a year to leave behind laughing, this is it!" - Bob Ayres

Make the last day of the year hassle-free, fun & funny. The 9 p.m. start time & 11:30 p.m. closing time allow an opportunity for an early dinner or enough time for a midnight rendezvous elsewhere. But the evening also includes an invitation to stay for the afterparty countdown with the comics and a free toast of bubbly to welcome in 2019.

The show features five fabulously funny, smart and fun comedians. Co-stars for the evening are Karen Rontowski, who brings her fast-paced, quirky and charmingly optimistic comedy that has been featured in clubs, TV, radio, and at corporate events; and Brian Kiley, staff writer for Conan O’Brien for 23 years and 16-time Emmy nominee (he won in 2007). Local favorite Ron Vigh is the featured comic, and Maureen Langan, KGO personality and award-winning comic, will be the host for the evening. Plus, there will be an additional special guest!

Seating choices include reserved seats at candle-lit tables, reserved and general admission non-table seating, and group seating. Reserve tables now, and bring the party here!

As this event sells out each year, attendees are encouraged to buy tickets as early as possible for the best seats and the best prices.
