Laughter is the best medicine, and the traditional cure for cabin fever is back and better than ever! This hilarious show is the perfect antidote to the post Holiday slump.

Mike Donovan – Boston comedy Legend!
Mike Donovan has been a headlining stand-up comedian since the late 1970’s.  He is also a free lance writer whose articles have appeared in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and Sports Illustrated magazine.  Mike has headlined in Vegas and Atlantic City, is often heard on WBZ radio and was a sports talk show host on The New Sports Huddle with Eddie Andleman.  If you know anything about Boston comedy you know who Mike Donovan is.

Steve Guilmette
Steve brings a raucous wit and an every-man’s sensibility to the National comedy scene. Steve’s act has received a warm and enthusiastic response from audiences throughout the country. He was chosen and has competed in the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival. Steve has performed at Wiseguys Comedy Club in NY, Turning Stone Casino in NY, The Comedy Connection (Boston, MA & Portland, ME), Nick’s Comedy Stop (Boston, MA), The Comedy Studio (Boston, MA), The Charles Playhouse (Boston, MA), Headliners Comedy Club (Manchester, NH), The Capital Center for the Performing Arts (Concord, NH), The Augusta Civic Center (Augusta, ME), and The Portsmouth Music Hall (Portsmouth, NH).

Bill Simas
Bill Simas, started doing stand-up in 2005, when he was given his first chance to perform with the RI Comedy Factory thanks to a RI comedy legend, Mr. John Perrotta! After a hiatus, Bill returned in January 2011 to chase a dream that should have been chased two decades ago.

Since then, he has hosted at the Comedy Connection in East Providence RI, performed at Catch a Rising Star at Twin River Casino in Lincoln RI, and headlines various benefits and fundraisers.  He also created a very successful show at Comix Comedy Club Bar & Grill at Foxwoods Casino.  At Bill’s Comix Show at Foxwoods,  he started by hosting the show, moved up to the featured act, and is now headlining his own shows as of Fall 2012!  Bill has now begun touring nationally, headlining every six months at Catch a Rising Star at The Silver Legacy Casino in Reno, Nevada.

October of 2014, Bill competed in the Funniest Comic on the East Coast competition, organized by TreeHouse Productions, at Mohegan Sun Casino.  He placed top 5 out of several hundred comedians.

Two words have directed and sustained Bill’s journey: humble and hungry. Stay humble and help as many people as possible. Stay hungry and keep that fire to remain focused on his goal; bringing good energy and good comedy to every single show.
