What better way to end the year than with some quality yuks with irreverent jokesters at the top of their game? Premier political satirist Will Durst is joined by a team of notorious local comedians, including Bay Area favorite Johnny Steele plus Debi Durst, Michael Bossier, Mari Magaloni, and Arthur Gaus for an evening of stand-up comedy, improvisation, and sketches about the major news stories of 2012.  The troupe is celebrating their 20th Anniversary of Big Fat Year End shows and this year's news (and election) is bound to yield much hilarious material and plenty of laughs for all in this PG-13 rated show.

Presenting "comedy for people who read, or know someone who does," Will makes a point of puncturing the pomposity of sacred cows on both sides of the aisle. A five-time Emmy nominee and a regular commentator for, Air America, CNN, and NPR, Will is as current as today's headlines, as accurate as a sniper, and in the words of the New York Times, "quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today."

Known to many Bay Area folks as the host of the Live 105 Morning Radio Show (late 1990s) and the co-host of KRON/Bay TV's THE SHOW (early 2000s), Johnny has also been performing comedy at clubs and festivals throughout the country for more than three decades. Johnny is currently working on a humorous solo show about his journey to find peace in a "WalMart America gone mad with mindless consumption, endless sprawl, and bone jarring stupidity."

Debi is an established Bay Area comedian who's opened for everyone from George Carlin to her husband, Will. She's also made vocal contributions to several movies, including Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, for which she provided the voice of the little corpse boy.

When asked about the role of comedians, Michael replied thus: “I believe we are the canaries in the coal mines. It is our job to digest three newspapers, subscribe to over twenty mags, surf the web, listen to the radio and read a book a week.”  

Mari is a member of the sketch comedy troupe Comedy Noir. In addition to impersonating Sarah Palin in the troupe’s Obama Roast, Mari plays Joan Rivers in their Hitler Roast and the Virgin Mary in the Jesus Roast.

Arthur is a stand-up comedian and actor. He has appeared in San Francisco Comedy Day, among other top-notch productions.
