Best Countdown Ever

When: Sat., Dec. 31, 10 p.m. 2016

In a year that has given us so very little to be amused about, why not usher in 2017 by exercising your atrophied laugh muscles? DSI Comedy Theater, a local bastion of improv comedy, offers a three-part slate. It begins with a family-friendly show (6 p.m., $12) that won't stint on the giggles while keeping things strictly G-rated. The evening's middle segment (7:30 p.m., $18), the "2017 pregame," gathers several of N.C.'s sharpest standup wits for a performance timed to allow revelers to frontload some laughs before heading off to, ahem, more elegant precincts. In a similar family-friendly spirit, the pregame show also promises not to go blue, Carolina or otherwise. But the highlight is the main event at ten, when the party will take on a more adult flavor (and, accordingly, turns twenty-one-and-up). DSI will supply the party favors, noise makers, a champagne toast at midnight, and a bunch of funny people who will make you laugh. Show up dressed for cocktails and in the mood to end this year smiling. — David Klein
