Hampton Beach Comedy Festival 2019 with host Jimmy Dunn
Again this year, Jimmy Dunn (Love, Conan, Letterman, CBS' The McCarthys) hosts a bevy of the Boston region's best stand-up comedians at the iconic Ashworth by the Sea, Ocean Boulevard, Hampton.
Produced by Scamps Comedy, the shows feature Dunn as host and at least six comedians each night, over four nights. Showtime is 8 p.m., tickets are just $20 per show.
Among the new faces to join the festival this year is Boston legend Kenny Rogerson, whose industry credits include FXs Rescue Me, Letterman, and the documentary When Stand-up Stood Out.
