The last long holiday weekend wrap to the summer traditionally brings Boston area comedians to Lincoln, and – despite pandemic times – this year is no exception. The North Country Center for the Arts will welcome Comedy Host Greg Boggis and two popular stand-up comics, Sunday, September 6 at 7:30 pm onstage at Jean’s Playhouse.
Jim Colliton has been honing his comedy with the real experiences of married-dad-with-three-kids suburban life. His first album, “Stories from the Suburbs” won Comedy Album of the Year in 2006. Jim’s second album “Why is Dad so Angry?” has gone on to be one of the most requested comedy albums on XM Satellite Radio. Jim has been on Comedy Central, NBC, Fox, and CBS, and he has a new comedy special out this year on Dry Bar Comedy. Finally, Dads get their story told with the comedy of this popular comedian.
Jody Sloane began with sit-down shtick as Penny Wise, a cheeky “Conducktor” on the Boston Duck Tours: 4,000+ tours provided a prefect tee-up to becoming a stand-up regular at esteemed venues throughout New England and beyond, from Headliners Comedy Clubs to NYC’s Gotham Comedy Club, the Foxwoods Comix Comedy Club and more. Along the way, she’s played anywhere people need to laugh – and was on the Jean’s Playhouse stage for the 2019 Memorial Day Comedy Show.
Hosting, Greg Boggis brings his own brand of humor as well as NCCA house comic and comedy event producer. Recently awarded honorable mention in the comedian category by Hippo Magazine, Greg’s monthly comedy showcase at Fody’s Tavern in Nashua was named one of the top 5 comedy venues in NH by the website Best in NH. NH favorite from The Strange Name Movie!
