New Year’s Eve for this year is going to be have to be done at home, virutally, since the pandemic didn’t end by Easter or the Summer or October. As such, there will be no normal mass gatherings in the streets waiting for the ball to drop or packed bars or venues where you can sip champagne and hopefully have someone to kiss at the stroke of midnight local time.
While there also won’t be any NYE’s comedy live-streams in person (or there really shouldn’t be in almost every country around the world anyway), there will be a whole bunch of NYE’s comedy live-streams from every corner of the globe. Here’s a nice, convenient list of said comedy live-streams that will feature the likes of anyone from Mike Birbiglia to Reggie Watts to Romesh Ranganathan to Cameron Esposito to Laurie Kilmartin to Myq Kaplan to Judah Friedlander to Sandra Bernhard to so many more.
Take a gander, all in chronological order.
