Boston Comedy Night returns to West Acton Villageworks with a three-event fall series. The curator and host of our series is WES HAZARD — named one of “5 Boston comedians to watch” by Boston Globe Magazine. Each night, he brings some of the best and brightest comics working the New England circuit. The resumés of the comics we’ve presented to date are impressive. They have appeared on Comedy Central, The TV Guide Channel, Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! Podcast, NPR’s Commonwealth Journal, Lifetime’s Girls Night Out, and several local television stations. They have performed in countless comedy festivals, both regional and further afield, have hosted many regional events, and have appeared in a number of feature films. Our audiences have been extremely supportive and, frankly, surprised by the level of talent we’ve been able to bring to the ‘burbs. Kudos to Wes!
OUR OCTOBER LINEUP —
WES HAZARD (our host): Wes was named one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by The Boston Globe Magazine. A writer and storyteller as well as comedian, Wes brings wit, energy and honesty to the stage, qualities that have made him a regular performer in Boston venues as well as at The Boston Comedy Festival and The Women in Comedy Festival. He’s appeared as a guest on the Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! podcast with Scott Aukerman & Paul F. Tompkins. His debut book, Questions For Terrible People, was named a Barnes & Noble humor pick.
STEVE HALLIGAN: A recent runner up in both the Best of Boston Comedy contest and the Beantown Comedy Riots, Steve is quickly making a name for himself in the local comedy scene. Drawing upon his complex life experiences, including single parenthood and his road to recovery, Steve’s quick wit and charm have made him an audience favorite throughout New England.
CAROLYN PLUMMER: Some comics rely on the monumental events of the day or the faux pas of the rich and famous. Not Carolyn. She pulls material from the hum-drum, day-to-day life of everyman. Possessing an uncanny ability to introspectively pull from places most of us hide, Carolyn puts a nail through the heart of whiners and self-loathers, making the average seem hilarious and larger than life. Most of all, Carolyn’s twisted perception of our common experience leaves audiences hysterically shaking heads in agreement with her assessment that the world is indeed a very funny place.
LAMONT PRICE: Lamont has appeared in heck of a lot of comedy festivals including Montreal Just for Laughs, Rooftop Comedy Aspen Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, NY Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, and Rogue Island Comedy Festival — just to name a few. He has been featured in Hulu’s “Triumph the Insult Comic Dog’s Election Special,” “NPR: Bullseye with Jesse Thorn,” “Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy Tour,” and has recently been named to “Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch.” Lamont has shared the stage with hundreds of comedians including Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre, Dave Attel, Judah Friedlander, Patrice O’Neal, Jessica Williams, Brian Kiley, Steven Wright, Dane Cook, Marc Maron, Greg Fitzsimmons, Wyatt Cenac, Dom Irrera, Bob Marley, Phoebe Robinson, and Louis C.K. Recently, Lamont kicked off his “2018 XYZ College Tour” and is currently writing an animated pilot scheduled for release in 2018.
