APRIL’S HEADLINER — Ken Reid

Ken is a Boston-based stand-up comedian, podcaster, former punk rock teen (he was in the little loved 90’s Boston Punk band, “30 Seconds Over Tokyo”) and adult survivor of a latchkey childhood. He was the long-standing Friday night host at the legendary Comedy Studio in Cambridge and produced his chaotic comedy variety show “The Secret Menu” there for two years. Ken was twice nominated as Best Comedian in Boston by the Boston Phoenix and named one of Boston’s best comics by CBS Boston. He’s performed at national comedy festivals including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Riot LA Festival, The Eugene Mirman Festival, and worked with acts like Bob Saget, Todd Barry and John Oliver. He has appeared on NPR and is a frequent podcast guest having appeared on “You’re The Expert,” “Judge John Hodgman,” “Doug Loves Movies,” “Risk!”, and the “Dana Gould Hour.” He’s also the host and creator of the popular “TV Guidance Counselor” podcast.

FEATURING — Nick Ortolani

Nick’s the first guy to introduce himself at a party, and also the first to leave. His comedy combines a commanding stage presence with a literary sensibility that creates something unique. Employing a borderline-moral outrage at the daily atrocities of modern life, big and small, Nick leaves no stone unturned. His physical and verbal acrobatics have appeared in the Boston Comedy Festival, The Women In Comedy Festival, The Black Friday Comedy Marathon, and the Rogue Island Comedy Festival. He appears regularly at clubs around Boston, and has opened for national headliners. A regular at the Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Nick was selected as Comic In Residence for the club’s 20th anniversary. In addition to appearing on stage, his writing has been featured in “The Hard Times,” “Funny Or Die,” and on the “Nerdist” podcast network. He resides in Boston and is not as much of a cat person as you might think.

OPENER — Katie McCarthy

Katie is a Boston-based comedian who will make you delightedly shriek “What?!” She’s peddled her brand of silly-yet-cerebral humor all around the country, impressing audiences at Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, All Jane Comedy Festival, and Women in Comedy Festival. Starting as a sketch writer and actor, Katie has since tackled stand up; her absurd ruminations on personal experiences, pop culture, and politics quickly made her a favorite of Boston’s legendary Comedy Studio, where she served as their Comic In Residence in January 2016. She co-produced their annual Holiday Show in 2018 and was selected for their “Just For Laughs” audition showcase in 2019. Katie is the co-producer of “Party Cruise,” an outrageously goofy variety showcase and is a contributing writer for “Old School Game Show.”

OUR HOST — MIKE DORVAL!

After a mere three months of performing, Mike won the NH Comedy Festival, defeating some of New England’s most established comics and he quickly climbed the comedic ranks to become one of the youngest headliners in Boston history. He’s been praised by the Boston Globe as “One of Boston’s Best.” Mike has been featured on Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, starred in numerous TV commercials, and toured overseas for the USO. He has served as Comic In Residence at The Comedy Studio and is a favorite of the Boston Comedy Festival. He’s written and performed several one man shows which have had runs at the Charles Playhouse and Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater.
