Chris D. has been a standout at The Hampton Beach Comedy Festival, The Beantown Comedy Riots, The Boston Comedy Festival, and The Burbank Comedy Festival in Los Angeles. In addition to regularly opening for national headliners like Juston McKinney and Lenny Clarke, Chris once held the prestigious title of “Comic in Residence” at the famous Comedy Studio in Cambridge. He was chosen by Showtime producers to be the East Coast warm-up comic for the special Rob Gronkowski’s Unsportsmanlike Comedy. He also popped up in a hilarious altercation on the popular A&E program Live PD.
Eric Hurst was a featured act at the 2022 Altercation Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas. It was a good fit for Hurst, who has lived an interesting life as New Hampshire-turned-Los Angeles punk rock guitarist-turned-comedian. In the latter role, he has established himself as an affable-yet-edgy performer in two comedy scenes – in Massachusetts-New Hampshire-Maine and across the country in Seattle, Washington. He performs in clubs and bars around the region, frequently sharing the stage with visiting rock bands. He’s also performed with heavyweight comedians including Robbie Printz, Tony V., Joe Yannetty and Juston McKinney.
Delightfully daffy Doris Ballard ignites a spark in every room that she appears in. That's one of the reasons she was selected as a 2022 "Top Comedy Personality" by The Hippo. She's always welcome on New Hampshire stages.
Jay Gillespie is a former longtime Dick Doherty Boston comedian who is back after taking a break for comedy. Audiences approve.
