Hosted By Boston Comedy Legend Tony V

Tony is a Boston comedy legend who has been seen on television on Conan, Seinfeld and Louie, as well as the films The Heat and Bobcat Goldthwait’s World’s Greatest Dad with Robin Williams
 
Also appearing is Boston-bred Robert Kelly who’s comedy is deeply rooted his own life and relationships which makes it honest, abrasively funny, yet refreshingly vulnerable.  In 2003, he was voted the Breakthrough Performer of the Year on CringeHumor.net and he has been winning over audiences for years while touring clubs, colleges and theaters, including repeat performances at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival. His one hour special Robert Kelly: Live at the Village Underground debuted on Comedy Central and is now available on Netflix. Besides being a fixture on Comedy Central, Robert plays Bam Bam in Denis Leary’s FX show Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, whose second season will air this summer.


Jim McCue, “Boston’s King of Crowd Work“, fresh off Gotham Live, will host. Jim has appeared on Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing, and is the author of the book Embedded Comedian, about entertaining our troops overseas. 
 
Jack Lynch, a 16-year veteran of the Boston comedy scene, will also be on hand. Lynch has toured the United States and Canada entertaining crowds with his earthy style, great impressions, and clean but sarcastic view of the world. He draws his humor from having lived in the suburbs of Boston, while at the same time having the unique perspective growing up with deaf parents. As a result of his family situation, Lynch got away with more than the average Boston kid and he amuses his audiences with those stories in his act. Jack is also founder ComicsForRecovery.com.
 
Joey Carroll, whose comedy prowess and impeccable timing made him a standout performer at The Boston Comedy Festival, landed a spot with Bobcat Goldthwait on Comedy Central’s Pulp Comics. Joey often performs with Jim, entertaining the troops at military bases around the world, and has been described as a cross between George Carlin and Dennis Miller.
 
Also in attendance will be Kitty Bruce, daughter of Comedy Icon Lenny Bruce, and Founder of the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation, as well as Woody Giessmann, founder of Right Turn and a member of the legendary band, The Del Fuegos.
