Sadly, Comedy Bang Bang’s Christmas Pageant is no longer (I’m still sad about that). Wipe those tears away and make your “Do This Today” buying a ticket to Loud Village’s Comedy For the Holidays!

To clarify, the show is NOT tonight, but you should get your ticket today because it will probably sell out quick.

Who will be there? Um, everyone. Pete Holmes, Rob Delaney, Paul Scheer, Eric Andre, Brett Gelman, The Birthday Boys, Howard Kremer, Taylor Williamson, Emily Maya Mills, Joe Sib and hosted by Jeremy Burke.
