GCI's NEW YEAR's EVE COMEDY SPECTACULAR is a year-in-review performed in the style of an Awards Show (like the OSCARS). We call it the "GOLDEN COCKERAL AWARDS" There are several rehearsed musical numbers and award presentations (Best, Most, Least, Worst of 2017 etc) interspersed between improvised scenes and songs based upon suggestions from the audience.

INTERMISSIONS and COUNTING DOWN THE NEW YEAR There will be one intermission for the 7:30pm show but there is NO intermission for the 10:30pm show. The 10:30 show will end at approximately 11:45pm so that patrons can exit the house and gather in the Geva lobby for a countdown to the New Year and a champagne toast at Midnight. (The champagne is included and only one toast will happen after the 10:30 show).

The main Geva bar will be open (cash/credit accepted) but the cafe will be closed so no food will be available.


Can be purchased for an additional $25 and includes one complimentary drink (Beer or Wine) and hors d'oeuvres. Tickets are limited - we recommend  buying early before they sell out. There is a reception before each show.

Begins immediately after the Champagne toast in the Geva Bar and Café area and will feature the DJ skills of Danny K. The Geva bar and dance floor will remain open until 2:00am. 

Is officially "Casual" yet diverse. Some people wear tuxedos, some people wear tuxedo t-shirts. All of it is cool with us - dress however you'd like to enjoy the New Year - just be sure you're actually dressed.

Limited Availability VIP RECEPTION: $25
