Just Announced Comic Invasion is coming for NYE Eve and NYE.  

Laugh In the New Year as the "Comic Invasion!" takes over the Lincoln Theatre Saturday and Sunday, December 30th and 31st for New Years Eve and New Years Eve EVE!   -4- National Touring Comedians Including Headliner Jeff Batts, host of the syndicated television series "Comic Invasion!" a show premiering on stations nationwide in 2024!  Both Lincoln shows will be filmed for segments later to be featured in the TV show!  Batts' act is a unique brand of "Full Contact Comedy" and a cast of wild characters that often leap from the stage and out into the crowd without warning!  

The show's Feature act will be Julian Watkins from Cape Girardeau Mo. a lawyer turned comic that not only brings a strong Stand-Up game to the stage but also a background as a Battle Rapper with more than 100,000 online viewers!  Julian has been seen on MTV!

Co-headliner is Eric Rueseler!  Eric has burst onto the midwest comedy scene the last 3 years in a big way!  Eric is a former Marine and a father, so his approach to comedy is edgy and off the wall but still relatable to audiences everywhere he performs!

Your host and emcee for this wild ride is "Helium Comedy Club" and "Funny Bone!" favorite TAJI from the StL!  Her unique and extremely goofy take on life is a really fun escape from life's harsh realities!

Watch Trailer

The "Comic Invasion!" show will start at 7:30pm and last call for laughs will be 9:15-930pm!  Content is for those 17 and older.  General Admission tickets are only $22 with VIP tickets going for $35 and include preferred seating PLUS (1) free drink of your choice, an after show "meet & greet" with the performers including selfies and autographed items and a 25% discount on their merchandise!
