For the 25th consecutive year, Will Durst and his merry band of pranksters take their end-of-the-year comedy extravaganza to the Bay Area’s far-flung nooks and crannies, in order to salve the soul of our intrepid crooks and nannies via their hilarious New Year’s celebration where humor and parking abound.
For the two weeks starting the day after the celebration of the birth of the tiny Jewish kid through the first Sunday of January, the troupe is prepared 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 and decorum.

The 25th edition of The Big Fat Year End Kiss Off Comedy Show features an uproarious collection of skits, songs, sketches, and stand- up, all based on the wacky zany antics that occurred during the calendar year of 2017. Some annums are less conducive as objects of humourosity, but this one gave us the veritable cornucopia of delights with Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Kim Jong Un, hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, floods and for all we know an actual Sharknado. It was lush like a tropical rainforest. Providing enough grist for the comedic mill to fill six 2- hour shows. But we will only be doing one. Cherry- picking all the best material.
