Hard Rock Cafe partners with Boston Comedy Festival
The Boston Comedy Festival and the Hard Rock Cafe are joining forces to do a summer series of Boston's Best Comedy to Fanuiel Hall area each Saturday this summer starting July 14th. Boston has a world-renowned comedy scene and this summer the Hard rock will be ground zero for Laughter. For people coming to town this summer, they can walk the freedom trail or go to Faneuil hall then enjoy a world-class comedy show with comedians they may have seen on Comedy Central, Netflix, HBO or headlining clubs and colleges all over the world. Boston Comedy Festival founder Jim McCue will kick off summer with a killer line up and is excited about partnering with the world-famous Hard Rock Cafe.
HOST Bethany Van Delft’s HAS performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, SF Sketchfest, as well as appearances on Comedy Central, TV Guide Channel, NickMom, and 2 Dope Queen's podcast. She hosts MOTH mainstages around the country, MOTH storyslams & Grandslams, is thrilled to have a MOTH story re-posted by SULU! (aka George Takei) and honored to have a story included in The MOTH's 2nd book "All These Wonders".
It's the return visit of this joke slinger from the fertile comedy grounds of Beantown! The minute he takes the stage his quick wit manifests itself, and the comedy ride commences. Spike’s staccato delivery will take you on a rapid-fire romp through his life and current events. His tirades touch subjects that most comedians stay away from such as the klan, guns, and religion, but his potent observations are strikingly funny as well as truthfully absurd.
Peter Martin is a Comedian hailing from Somerville MA. His humor resonates with the same gritty taste and sensibilities of the Boston blue collar working class. From absurd silliness to intelligent satire, Peter Martin over the past seven years has become a well known and established talent in the Boston comedy scene. Peter beat out literally hundreds of comedians to become the winner of the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival comedy contest!
A mixture of witty “A-list material” and his ability to work off-script has earned Jim McCue the title “Boston’s King of Crowd Work!” It’s not only his height of six foot six that makes Jim stand head and shoulders above club comedians of the “stick-to-the-script” variety. Jim blends thought-provoking material and uncanny improv skills with a style that encourages audience participation. No two shows are ever the same!
Jim has been featured on Comedy Central, Live at Gotham TV show, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and “Roughing It” on NESN in his native New England. Jim also founded and currently runs The Boston Comedy Festival.
Jim has also entertained U.S. troops at more than 100 bases around the world. An account of his experiences performing for the troops has recently been published in Embedded Comedian which Jim describes as a “field manual for comedians in a war zone.”
With his unique act, Jim keeps the audience on its toes. Volleying between set material and working for the crowd, Jim cracks jokes with amazing timing and whip-like precision. A unique blend that is sure to leave the audience roaring with laughter!
