Comedy Series with Jim Colliton, Dave Decker, and Jesse Bickford
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 fourth night in the series takes place on Friday, March with Jim Colliton, Dave Decker and Maine's own Jesse Bickford.
Jim Colliton grew up in the suburbs, which is a big influence on his act. If you've ever been embarrassed about the contents of your recycling bin or tried to kill a flying bat in your house, you will find his comedy hilarious. Jim also once stole a school bus and it seems like everyone finds that story funny. His love for performing comes out every time he takes the stage and while his comedy is very funny, it is also clean. This has helped him stay busy, and he has appeared on national television shows like Ed McMahon's Next Big Star, Comcast Comedy Spot Light and Comedy Central Laugh Riots. Jim can also be heard on XM Satellite Radio's Comedy Channel.
Dave Decker, a native of Massachusetts, performs regularly at clubs in Boston and New York City. Winner of the coveted Betty Crocker Award in 1975, Dave Decker brings his distinct point of view to the stage in a way that both engages and charms audiences. His intelligent and clever humor, along with his distinctive stage presence, make him a hit for venues large and small.
Jess Bickford is a Maine native who knew early on that he was different than the other kids. He didn't want to play sports, play with matchbox cars, or do the same stuff other kids did. What he did want was to make everyone around him laugh and be a part of a group that was always having a good time and enjoying themselves. Then one day he saw a comedian making everyone laugh on TV. His parents said THIS was his job. He asked his parents if the comedian was paid well. "Yeah, millions!" they said. So he vowed that he would not stop until he had 10 cars, a few mansions, and a supermodel as a wife from just being a funny guy. As of now, he is a single man who drives a Subaru Forester and lives with his parents.
