Overview

Once again, Des Moines can laugh in the New Year at the Comedy XPeriment New Year’s Eve Bash. On Sunday, December 31st, CXP will be performing their unique brand of improv comedy for Des Moines’ audiences at the Civic Center’s Stoner Theatre. The evening begins at 9:00pm with a dessert reception where the audience can meet the improvisers and enjoy a buffet of desserts; but the fun really begins at 10:00 pm when the show starts. CXP will present a fan-favorite mix of short-form and long-form improvisation by making up scenes based on suggestions from the audience. After the show, enjoy the champagne toast and count down the last seconds of 2017 with CXP.

CXP’s New Year’s shows last approximately 105 minutes, with an 11 minute, 14 second intermission. Each show is unique since it has never been rehearsed or performed before and will never been seen again! Since everything is improvised, even the performers themselves don’t know what’s going to happen. Story lines may cross over each other merge into one epic story at the end!

In years past, the New Year’s Eve shows have been sell-outs and CXP recommends getting tickets early. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Des Moines Performing Arts website. They can also be purchased on the night of the shows at the Civic Center box office. When purchasing tickets, be sure to ask for the “Couple Special” to receive the discounted rate.
