Peter Martin MC
Peter Martin is a Comedian hailing from Somerville MA. His humor resonates with the same gritty taste and sensibilities of the Boston blue-collar working class. From absurd silliness to intelligent satire, Peter Martin is also a member of a very exclusive club as a past Champion of the Boston Comedy Festival comedy Contest Champion!
FEATURE DAN BOULGER
Boston Comedian Dan Boulger, this was the set that made him Boston Comedy Festival Champion!
About Dan: Dan Boulger began his comedy career in late 2004 only one week into his freshman year of college. Quickly becoming a favorite in the New England area Boulger started performing nationally after winning the Boston Comedy Festival in 2006 at the age of 20.
He has since received recognition from both audiences and industry alike having performed on Comedy Central, The BBC, and the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, and most recently has made multiple appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen.
Headliner Kenny Rogerson
The Funniest Man You've Never Heard Of, KEN ROGERSON started his comedy career working the Chicago club circuit and at the famed Second City. After touring with the improvisational troupe The Comedy Rangers, Ken moved east and became a central part of the now famous and infamous exploding Boston comedy scene of the 1980s as documented in the film "When Standup Stood Out". There he honed his standup act to a fine edge "…sharp enough to cut the head off a rabbit at thirty yards."
Fresh off the Rescue Me Comedy Tour and recently completing taping the Billy Gardell Showtime Special you may also have seen him as "Kevin the Biker Fireman" on F/X's hit show "Rescue Me" starring Denis Leary or as "Pat the Cop" on ABC's "It's All Relative" with Lenny Clarke. He has also made numerous other television appearances on such shows as NBC's, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", "The Late Show with David Letterman", "Comics Come Home" for Comedy Central and Showtime's "A Pair of Jokes" just to name a few.
