The Big Fat Year End Comedy Show

The Big Fat Year End Comedy Show Start Date: Thursday 1/3/2019 — End Date: Thursday 1/3/2019 Admission:$28 Advance / $35 Day of Show Pucker up and kiss 2018 goodbye on Thursday, January 3rd, when political satirist Will Durst brings his irreverent tribe of merry pranksters back to the Rhythmix stage. Bay area favorite Johnny Steele along with Debi Durst, Michael Bossier, Mari Magaloni, and Arthur Gaus join Will for a hilarious evening of stand-up comedy, improvisation, and sketches riffing through the major news stories of 2018. The troupe vows to lampoon, satirize, mock, scoff, scorn, taunt, tease, rib and ridicule the people and events of the past year and do it with a modicum of taste. Presenting “comedy for people who read, or know someone who does,” Will makes a point of puncturing the pomposity of sacred cows on both sides of the aisle. A five-time Emmy nominee and a regular commentator for audible.com, CNN, and NPR, Will is as current as today’s headlines, as accurate as a sharpshooter, and in the words of the New York Times, “quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today.” The annual Big Fat Year End Kiss Off Comedy Show features an uproarious collection of riotous skits, songs, sketches, and stand- up, all based on the wacky events that made up 2018. Some calendars are less conducive as subjects of humourosity, but this one gave us Megyn Kelly, Brexit, the Zika virus and bad hombres grabbing nasty women. Lush like a tropical rain forest… Location: 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda Contact: Tina Blaine info@rhythmix.org URL: https://www.rhythmix.org/events/big-fat-year-end-comedy-2019
