Adults with 2020 vision may be looking for entertainment options to ring in the New Year on Dec. 31.

Buffalo’s two comedy clubs both have shows that will add a ton of laughs to your party night.

Canadian comic Jon Dore performs two shows at Helium Comedy Club in downtown Buffalo at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Dec. 31. At the beginning of his comedy career, Dore appeared on several television shows north of the border, including “Canadian Idol,” “Comedy Now!,” stand-up specials, and his own mockumentary program, “The Jon Dore Television Show” (2007-09). Over the past decade, Dore has grown a following with American audiences with performances on “Live at Gotham,” “Conan,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” “How to Live with Your Parents” and “How I Met Your Mother.” His latest special, “Big Questions, Huge Answers,” premiered on Comedy Central last year.

Regular admission tickets to the shows range from $34 to $59. Helium also is offering a show and four-course dinner package priced at $89 for 8 p.m. and $99 for 10:30 p.m. All ticket buyers will receive a free voucher for a future Helium show, along with party favors and champagne toast at midnight.
