San Jose Stage Company To Host Will Durst's BIG FAT YEAR END KISS OFF COMEDY SHOW XX, 12/31
Punctuate this election year with an evening of hilarity, satirizing the major news stories of 2012. Providing that the Mayans were wrong, New Year's Eve will laugh your way into 2013. Or make a nice holiday gift for the funniest person on your list.
"Our shows are all based on current events, and some years there's slim pickin's," claims Will Durst, "but this year...it's an embarrassment of riches."
Will Durst returns to The Stage, and along with his fellow troupe members: wife Debi Durst, friends Mari Magaloni, Johnny Steele, Arthur Gaus and Michael Bossier, the show will make you "laugh against your will." The night of comedy and politics returns to San Jose for the third consecutive year, with a collection of skits, stand-up comedy, quizzes and many other surprises. Hitting seven cities in seven days, San Jose's only performances are on New Year's Eve.
"We love the San Jose Stage Company, and cannot think of a better way to usher in 2013 than with laughs, party favors and champagne...but not in that order," added Durst.
Tickets are priced at $30 in advance and $40 at the door for the 7 pm performance, and $50 in advance and $60 at the door for the 10 pm show. The second performance includes a champagne toast and ballon drop to ring in the New Year.
