Mike Bent is a prop comic/magician from Belmont, Massachusetts. He started performing stand-up comedy when he was sixteen at the famous Ding Ho comedy club in Cambridge, MA. He has performed at comedy clubs and colleges throughout the U.S. as well as the White House and the Montreal Comedy Festival. His television appearances include spots on NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO, Showtime, Comedy Central, and A&E. He is the author of The Everything Guide to Comedy Writing, and has served as a comedy consultant for Warner Brothers.
Steamy Bohemians are Lainey and Niki, two sexy funny, ladies with lovely voices and dirty mouths. Its the campy cabaret show that will steal your heart -- and your identity. Called haute vaudeville by the Boston Phoenix, The Steamies - Jerkus Circus brings back variety in style, including wildly diverse performances, uniquely hilarious comedy, pasties, drug references, and all your favorite swear words. Watch them channel the gods of chaos! Their struggle will seem effortless. What song will Lainey forget how to play? What will Niki pull out of her boobs? There's only one way to find out. Come see hilarious comedians, scary weirdos, sexy dancing, feats of daring, and fabulous music.
Sean Sullivan made his National Television Debut in December 2009 on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham!" He is an accomplished and popular stand up comedian and sketch comedy performer whose loose and unpredictable style leaves everyone guessing at what he'll come up with next. A semi-finalist in the 2008 Boston Comedy Festival, Sean has been profiled in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, the Phoenix, and the Weekly Dig. He has also interned at Late Night with Conan O'Brien and has showcased for producers of Comedy Central and the Late Show with David Letterman.
A gay Iranian-American binge eater, Mehran is often still addressed as ma'am by phoning bill collectors, which is an easy out. That's right. I'm a lady, and you have the wrong number. Please amend your records. His rise on the list of who's who in the Boston comedy scene has happened at a breakneck pace. In a relatively short time span, he has built an extraordinary reputation for being able to consistently kill audiences in clubs and colleges throughout the region. The energy, irreverence, likeability, and honesty he brings to the stage are uncommon for a seasoned veteran and even rarer in a comedian so new to the craft. Try him. You'll love him
Dave McDonough's unique view of the world is as scary as it is refreshing. His dry monotone delivery and intense stage presence is a style all his own. A rising star in the Boston circuit, his routine has some audiences wondering if they should laugh or lock him up - toeing the line but seldom crossing it. Dave won the 2009 Boston Comedy
