Comedy Series with Ira Proctor, Will Noonan and Tammy Pooler
The last of this season's 5-show run of comedy nights, this is one finale that won't be sad in any way. In fact, it promises to be downright hilarious with the return of Maine comedian Tammy Pooler along with Ira Proctor and Will Noonan.
Ira Proctor is a Boston-based comedian that has traveled everywhere from Las Vegas to Afghanistan to perform comedy. He recently performed to rave reviews at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, was featured on The Today Show, and finished up his second season of NESN's Comedy All-Stars. He was the local winner in Boston of Sierra Mist's "Next Great Comic Search," has become a fixture in the annual Boston Comedy Festival, and has appeared on Comedy Central's Laugh Riots. Ira's other credits include XM Radio along with commercials for Diet Pepsi, Harvey Windows and Bob's Discount Furniture.
Boston comedian Will Noonan was recently named a "2013 Comic to Watch" by The Boston Globe Magazine. He has been featured as a comic on MTV's "FNMTV" and, like Ira Proctor's, his bits are regularly played on XM Radio's comedy channels. He has also told a story on NPR's weekly program, This American Life. His podcast, "High Pathetically with Will Noonan," does huge download numbers, and Will has proudly performed at many of New York and New England's finest comedy clubs, theaters, casinos, and college campuses.
Maine's own Tammy Pooler performed at the Franco Center at the second of three comedy nights last year, and she had the audience in stitches from her very first joke. In the tradition of Lucille Ball, Phyllis Diller and Carol Burnett, Tammy possesses a care-free, spontaneous, devil-may-care silliness that knows no bounds and accents the absurdity of everyday life. It was as if destiny had scripted her comic role through years of training: growing up in a Maine trailer park, working at McDonald's in high school, a stint as a "hairipist," cosmetologist, wife, mother, and finally as a marketing guru. Any one of those jobs is rife with comedy material put them all together and you've enough material to keep 'em laughing for hours.
