Mic Drop

Expectations for New Year's Eve events get inflated; this is a fact of life. But by attending a comedy showcase, you're virtually guaranteeing that you'll be laughing as 2013 turns to 2014. And there's nothing wrong with laughing; in fact, some doctors agree that it's the “best medicine.” This year's third-annual NYE Comedy Countdown boasts a lineup featuring thought-provoking Hannibal Buress, the comely Jessimae Peluso, perpetual Stoner of the Year Doug Benson, the hostly Pete Holmes, Oakland homeboy Moshe Kasher, and even more. With this lineup of rather diverse comedic voices and stylings, there will be a joke for everyone. And if it's funny enough, you might catch yourself laughing about it the next day, albeit somewhat nostalgically, as you take down your 2013 photos-of-horses calendar and put up your new 2014 photos-of-horses calendar. Damn, you just love horses, don't you?
