Rita Rudner - 2017 NYE

Rita Rudner's "LAUGH, DRINK, and LEAVE"

One performance only, December 31, 2017 at 7pm

Rita Rudner is not only one of America's top comedians -- she's also a New York Times bestselling author, as well as an award-winning television personality, screenwriter, playwright, Broadway dancer and actress. A house-filling favorite in Vegas, Rudner is beloved for her witty one-liners, which have helped make hers the longest-running solo show in Vegas history -- she's sold more than a million tickets during her time there. Now this comedy legend is hosting her own early evening New Year's Eve party at Laguna Playhouse in Orange County, where you'll toast the end of 2017 and watch the ball drop on the East Coast with a complimentary champagne drink and dessert. Rita Rudner's "Laugh, Drink, and Leave" is a one night special performance featuring special guests Molly Bergman and Sidney Bowen. Purchase tickets here.
