Hard to believe that we're heading into the New Year. Unfortunately, most museums, zoos, performing arts centers, bookstores, and comedy clubs are still closed for in-person events. However, you can still visit the zoo, explore a new museum, take in a theatrical performance, attend an author talk, or catch an open mic at a comedy club; all from the comfort of home. Here are some of Eventbrite's online culture, comedy, and fine arts events, edited by us to shorten the list down to low cost or free events:
