“We’ve loved these outdoor shows, both in the parking lot and in the tent. It’s always a fun night, and a great experience.”Dave Rattigan
About the comedians
Headliner Dan Crohn was named one of the top 100 comics for Season 9 of Last Comic Standing and has appeared on Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV and Laughs on Fox. He decided he wanted to be a comedian after stumbling upon his dad’s Henny Youngman records at age 8, and a job teaching fourth graders provided him with endless amounts of material. That, along with observations and stories of family and friends, has entertained audiences all over the country. A semifinalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, he has performed with a number of national acts — among them Doug Stanhope, Jim Norton, and Pauly Shore.
Tony Moschetto is one of the most uniquely hilarious comedians in the United States. Standup comedy has literally taken him around the world, as he’s performed not only in Boston and New England, but in New York City, Los Angeles, London and Beijing, China. He’s been featured on Comedy Central, and his quirky manner and unique point of view one of the most unique comedians in the country. He’s also an award-winning filmmakers, with a short featured at the AngelCiti Film Festival in Los Angeles, and another that won the audience choice award at the 2004 Boston Comedy Festival.
TikTok sensation Ma from “Chris & Ma” makes his comedy theater debut. His hysterical short videos have captured big fan interest around New England, and he’s delighted audiences on Boston comedy stages.
Debi Braconi has done comedy all over the world, including “performances” at 45,000 feet in the air as a flight attendant. She has performed at Laugh Boston, The Comedy Studio and recently Mohegan Sun. In addition, she’s been on stage with Second City Chicago.
Dave Rattigan returns as host. He’s a headlining Boston Comedian whose work has been played on XM, and he also works as producer and owner of Scamps Comedy Productions, an actor on New England commercials, and is a former award-winning journalist and beloved adjunct faculty member (except for the students that he annoys) at two Massachusetts colleges. His two most recent endeavors have been using his joint journalism-comedy background as co-host of two very different but well-received podcasts – Inside the Thin Blue Line (with former cop Dale Lawrence) and Soccerheads New England (with comedian/former college players Paul Nardizzi and Jim Ruberti).
