Juston McKinney

Presented By JJR Productions

It’s been a busy time for NH’s Juston McKinney, having been featured on a Showtime Special with Rob Gronkowski “Unsportsmanlike Comedy”, performed at the TD Garden with Denis Leary & Jimmy Fallon as part of “Comics Come Home”, and just released his new stand-up special, “Parentally Challenged”.  He has two previous Comedy Central Specials, including his own one-hour, multiple appearances on the Tonight Show, and on Conan O’Brien, but there’s no place like home!

When NH magazine named him “Best of NH” they wrote, “The Granite State may have more famous comedians than you can shake a stick at (Seth Meyers, Sarah Silverman and Adam Sandler to name a few) but no one really “gets” New Hampshire humor like Juston McKinney.”  

His Youtube/facebook channels have millions of views, which include  NH favorites such as “Clark’s Trading Post”, “Live Free or Die” and “Live Freeze then Die!”.

Juston was born in Portsmouth and raised on the seacoast. He currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, kids and dogs.

Kathy Griffin

The Colonial Theatre is pleased to welcome Kathy Griffin to the stage Thursday, April 27, 2017.

Two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is a towering figure on television, on tour and in publishing. She breaks through the entertainment clutter with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy.

A #1 New York Times bestselling author, Kathy recently released her much-anticipated second book, “Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index,” in November 2016.  The book is an A-Z compendium of the celebrities she’s met over the years and the outrageous, charming and sometimes-bizarre anecdotes only she can tell about them. Simultaneously, she revealed a brand new nationwide, 50-city standup tour under the same moniker that will begin in January of 2017.  

In 2016, Kathy completed her 80-city, “Like A Boss” Tour, with stops from coast to coast including a four-night run at the famed Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, CA, and two sold out performances at the illustrious Kennedy Center in Washington DC and the iconic Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.

From penning New York Times best-selling books to filling the country’s biggest concert halls on her comedy tours, Griffin has cemented herself as one of the most powerful figures in comedy. Unfiltered, unafraid, and utterly hilarious – she is a must-see for any stand-up fan.
