Comedy Series with Michael Cho, Gregg Boggis, and Matt Barry
The Franco Center's Comedy Series is back! After last year's test run of three such events, we're doing five this year, one of which includes an R-rated comedy hypnotist. The third night in the series takes place on Friday, February 7 with Michael Cho, Gregg Boggis, and Matt Barry.
Michael Cho infuses explosive high energy with a rapid fire style delivered in a native Korean accent, which has made him one of the more popular headliners in the business today. Cho scans the audience, processes everything he sees and hears, then improvises from the top of his head with the result being some of the craziest stuff to ever come out of the mouth of a son of a Korean immigrant, invariably followed by audiences exploding with laughter. Some might say he is a fast talking, hip, "Korean Robin Williams." Unlike most comedians, Michael doesn't believe in pacing himself or taking it easy he just looks out into the audience for his next victim.
After winning the coveted prize of class clown in his senior year at Milford Area Senior High in Milford, New Hampshire, Greg Boggis went on to the School of Life Experience and performed a series of gigs as a greens-keeper, factory worker, carpenter, plumber, painter, college security officer, college student, pirate and all around wise-ass With a laid-back blend of current events, interesting observations, crowd work and all-around fun approach to life, Greg has been appearing at comedy clubs, colleges, benefits and corporate shows all across America, and continues to appear anyplace that needs a hard-working professional comedian.
Matt Barry, also of New Hampshire and a 2012 finalist in New England's Best Bar Comic contest, is one of the fastest rising stars in comedy in the northeast. He is also a writer, rock climber, whiskey drinker (but not before climbing rocks), Bruins fan, comic book reader, and Egyptology enthusiast. A mischievous, post-grad stoner, Matt's act centers around a transition into adulthood he isn't ready to make. Applying to jobs and living with his parents, it's all part of Matt's everyday struggle to grow up.
