Our first Boston Comedy Night in February was a hit. Hosted by Wes Hazard (named one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by Boston Globe Magazine), four Boston-based comics rocked the house. If there was ever a time when people needed to get together and just laugh and smile, it is now, right? Wes is bringing another great line-up to us on May 19.

TIM McINTIRE has been one of the most popular and prolific comedians in Boston for over a decade. His career has been eclectic — he’s hosted the Boston Music Awards, written for Nickelodeon, released two comedy albums, and been featured on NPR. His Thursday Night Fights and Geek Council shows are legendary. He’s performed on TV (Comcast Comedy Spotlight), at comedy festivals (Boston, Chicago), and on film (Long Distance). And as one of the owners of Mottley’s Comedy Club, he helped give the next generation of comics a space to find their own comedic voices.
