Boston Comedy Night returns to West Acton Villageworks with a three-event fall series. The curator and host of our series is WES HAZARD — named one of “5 Boston comedians to watch” by Boston Globe Magazine. Each night, he brings some of the best and brightest comics working the New England circuit. The resumés of the comics we’ve presented to date are impressive. They have appeared on Comedy Central, The TV Guide Channel, Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! Podcast, NPR’s Commonwealth Journal, Lifetime’s Girls Night Out, and several local television stations. They have performed in countless comedy festivals, both regional and further afield, have hosted many regional events, and have appeared in a number of feature films. Our audiences have been extremely supportive and, frankly, surprised by the level of talent we’ve been able to bring to the ‘burbs. Kudos to Wes!
WES HAZARD (our host): Wes was named one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by The Boston Globe Magazine. A writer and storyteller as well as comedian, Wes brings wit, energy and honesty to the stage, qualities that have made him a regular performer in Boston venues as well as at The Boston Comedy Festival and The Women in Comedy Festival. He’s appeared as a guest on the Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! podcast with Scott Aukerman & Paul F. Tompkins. His debut book, Questions For Terrible People, was named a Barnes & Noble humor pick.
LAURA SEVERSE: Laura is a working mother of two by day, and comedian by night. She started standup in 2001, followed by a detour into marriage, motherhood, and middle management. She recently performed in New Orleans and Las Vegas. Laura’s comedic material comes from her large, dysfunctional Dorchester family, mean-spirited co-workers, and her two small children. She is anassociate producer for the Boston Comedy Chicks and a regular performer at the Comedy Studio and Improv Boston.
TAWANDA GONA: Born in Zimbabwe, Boston-based Tawanda has moved up and down the US east coast since he was three years old. Tawanda has been featured in the Boston Globe, is a comic in residence at the Comedy Studio, and appeared most recently in The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, Oregon.
DAN CROHN: Dan has been performing stand up comedy in and around Boston for years. His jokes can be heard on XM Radio and he has been a guest on the popular podcast WTF with Marc Maron. Dan was named one of the top 100 comics for Season 9 of Last Comic Standing and has recently appeared on Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV and Laughs on Fox.
