THE FIRST NIGHT OF FUNNY—NEW YEARS EVE COMEDY EVENT
Annual event returns to Proctors AND is a homecoming for comic John DiCrosta!
The First Night of Funny, the annual New Years Eve stand-up comedy event, is returning to Proctors this year and is on sale now at www.FirstNightOfFunny.com.
The annual event is now in its 11th year and provides a high quality yet affordable indoor option for guests to enjoy on New Years Eve. All shows are suitable for guests 16 and over (except for the “Uncensored” shows) and provide a great night of laughs that ends early enough to be home well before midnight. Each event features three nationally touring headliners and also are hosted by a local/regional comedian to provide a great opportunity for local talent to develop and get new exposure. All tickets are the same price everywhere in the house, so the earlier you purchase, the closer to the stage you sit (no VIP seating for those willing to spend more). Tickets are $30 through 12/25; $35 from 12/26 through 12/30; and $40 the day of the event for all shows and venues. Tickets for ALL shows and details for each are available atwww.FirstNightOfFunny.com
