Maggie Faris St. Paul Photo Co.


East Coast Style New Year's Eve Comedy Show

Dec. 31
7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Comedy, Holiday

If you’re someone who loves comedy, celebrations, and reasonable bedtimes, Maggie Faris is your girl. For the fourth year in a row, Faris will host her East Coast Style Comedy Show alongside comedians Jeff Pfoser, Chloe Radcliffe, and Kate Anderson. The thing that makes this happening great is that they do the full-blown New Year’s hoopla on the East Coast clock. That means you’re throwing confetti and tongue-kissing strangers at 11 p.m. here in Minnesota. You’ll still have time to get home, wash the last of 2017 off yourself, and snuggle into your warm bed before the clock hits midnight. As in past years, there will be booby prizes and beer (because, you know, Sisyphus is a brewery). However, what makes this year different is that it will also serve as a CD-release party for Faris, who will be celebrating her sophomore album, A Dingus Among Us. For those who feel like 11 p.m. is still too late but want to celebrate like the cool kids, there is also an early show with all the pomp and circumstance, so you can get home and relieve your babysitter before the primetime New Year’s Eve rates kick in. Tickets and more info can be found at 21+.
