Help save COMEDY @ the Portsmouth PEARL!
We need a really good turnout at this one, so Mike Smith has come up with a great plan for us, as well as the Pearl.
Mike will discount meetup members 20% AND give us 2 of the top Boston comedians that are regular Las Vegas performers.
In return we need to pack the place with meetup members and their friends. So get the word out, and help us make this happen!
Where else can you get good, professional, entertainment for this price of $12.? .....and what better way to start the NEW YEAR but with many good Laughs! Food & drinks are also served!
Introducing our own meetup sweetheart, Ann Marie King as the opening performer with Jim Colliton & Steve Bjork
Ann Marie King is the girl next door. Her stand up comedy is a clever blend of expressive and witty worldly observations with a unique comic style. Quirky and endearing, she can also melt your heart with a lovely ballad.
She has also been charming audiences for years in musical theater. Favorite roles include Peg in "Peg O' My Heart", Bianca in "Taming of the Shrew" and for the last 8 years playing wacky bridesmaid Louisa Ravioli in the long running hit "Joey & Maria's Comedy Italian Wedding",.Ann Marie's songs will break your heart, but her comedy will mend it!
Jim’s comedy is funny, but also clean.
Out of all the great acts in Boston, Jim Colliton is considered by many as one of the next comedians to break out onto the national scene. Jim's love for performing comes across in his hilarious comic routine and his unique improvisational skills. Jim has added to this reputation with his performances in the San Francisco Comedy Festival and the Comedy Central Laugh Riots. His comedy club appearances include The Tropicana, Comedy Connection, Nick's Comedy Stop, Giggles, and Just for Laughs.
Stephen Bjork is a polished veteran of the highly competitive Boston comedy scene with crisscrossing tours of the country under his belt. His material is intelligent; sometimes absurd, and always accessible, but first and foremost it is funny. What truly sets him apart from the teeming crowd of today’s comedians is that you never have to ask Bjork to work ‘clean.’ While so many comedians think working clean means simply omitting the F-bomb, Bjork takes everyday life and turns it upside down in a way that every demographic in any given audience can enjoy. And because he does it so well, no one ever misses the filth. A longtime favorite in nightclubs and colleges around the country, Steve enjoys equal success in corporate settings.
Bjork has performed at all of the major Boston and New England comedy clubs along with The Improv in Las Vegas, NV; Mohegan Sun in CT, Hilarities in Orlando, FL and Cleveland, OH; TSM Comedy Club in Louisville, KY; Crackers in Indianapolis, IN, Penguins in Cedar Rapids, IA, and many, many others.
We'll find a HOT spot with entertainment after the show! So come on and join us.....even if you've been here before. You have not seen these great performers!
