Bring in the New Year in with Laughter!
Hosted By: Alvin David
Big Al is like the most delicious cocktail an audience has ever tasted. Imagine a Las Vegas lounge singer with killer jokes where the songs would be. Then, add a frenetic stream of consciousness, driven by a seemingly drug-induced pace. Sprinkle in a genuine love of the game. Now garnish with groovyness. Serve cool.....really cool
Janet McNamara is a Boston-based comic who’s regaled audiences all over New England with her authentic conversational style and awkwardly charming energy.

Peter Martin is a Comedian hailing from Somerville. His humor resonates with the same gritty taste and sensibilities of the Boston blue collar working class. From absurd silliness to intelligent satire, over the past seven years, Martin has become a well-known and established talent in the Boston comedy scene. Peter beat out hundreds of comedians to become a Boston Comedy Festival Champion!
Headlined By: Jim McCue
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, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” RedEye on Fox news, Live at Gotham AXS TV and “Roughing It” on NESN in his native New England. Jim also founded and currently runs The Boston Comedy Festival. He works in top comedy clubs in Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Dublin, Montreal and Edinburgh.
Since 2000 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 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!
