Who’s Lookin’ for Laughs on New Year’s Eve?
(UPDATE: This listing was updated with numerous changes and additions on December 1)
Once upon a time not too long ago, it seemed as though your primary New Year’s Eve options were A.) going out to dance at some swanky nightclub venue (very expensive) or B.) staying home to watch Dick Clark on your TV as he counted down to the ball drop in Times Square (totally cheap).
Well, although it’s still more than a month away, the launch of 2018 ain’t gonna be your parents’ New Year Eve celebration.
In recent years, it seems as though comedians have taken over from musicians as the go-to NYE entertainers. And this year, the comedy options around Greater Nippertown seem to have exploded exponentially. Perhaps we all desperately need a good guffaw as we take a look back at the rocky 2017 landscape that we’re leaving behind…
