12th Annual New Years Eve Stand-Up Comedy Showcase

Presented by The Other Cafe Comedy Showcase at Angelico Hall - Dominican Univ of CA, San Rafael CA

Dec 31 2022
12th Annual New Years Eve Stand-Up Comedy Showcase

New Years Eve made Easy and Very Funny

New Year’s Eve Made Easy and Very Funny – An Evening of Smart, Clean, and Topical Stand-Up Comedy

This annual show sells out every year and is presented by the folks who ran the infamous Haight-Ashbury Comedy Club, The Other Cafe.

The Other was the local breeding ground and workout room for the likes of Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld, Dana Carvey, Jay Leno, Ellen Degeneres, Paula Poundstone, and countless others.

This show features Six headliners in one show at the historic Angelico Concert Hall on the campus of Dominican University in San Rafael.

SEE Short clips of the performers HERE.

This style of show presents more comedians, each doing shorter sets (20min)—in a variety of comedic styles, all in the tradition of our old Haight-Ashbury comedy club. We have booked a tremendous lineup of styles, from the classic one-liners to deadpan, to physical, to observational humor. Our brand of Stand-Up comedy always leans toward the clean, topical, kind, and insightful end of the humor spectrum.

The show is timed (8:00 – 10:30 pm), so you can grab an early dinner somewhere, enjoy great stand-up comedians with friends in a historic theater setting (incl/ lots of close and free parking), then have time to be wherever you wish – to ring in the new year. Say goodbye to a crazy year laughing with friends!
