Boston Comedy Night returns to West Acton Villageworks with a four-event Winter/Spring 2018 series. The curator and host of our series is WES HAZARD — named one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by Boston Globe Magazine and 2017 winner of a New England Emmy Award. 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. We are so pleased to be bringing Wes and his gang back to the 'burbs for another season.

Wes is a multiple-time winner on The Moth StorySLAM stage and he’s appeared as a guest on the “Comedy Bang! Bang! Live!” podcast — based on the critically acclaimed IFC television show with Scott Aukerman & Paul F. Tompkins.

She is the co-producer and co-host of Laughing Liberally Boston, Boston's first and only progressive political comedy show. (Her family in India is not aware of these shenanigans.)
As a life-long bachelor and full-time single dad, Chris relies on his dysfunctional family and off-beat view of the world to find humor in everyday life.

Chris was a finalist in CMTs Next Big Comic competition and was also seen on CMT. In 2013, Chris won the Foxwoods Casino “Last Comix Standing” comedy contest.

He has been featured on the hilarious Gotham Live and Laughs on Fox television shows and currently can be heard on Sirius XM.
