When it's over, there will be one comic standing with a nice little bag of money and a ton of bragging rights.
Hosted By Lamont Price
Lamont Price is a hilarious oxymoron. His comedy is edgy and laidback, off the beaten path and anchored in social consciousness. He doesn’t care in that cool sort of way, and he doesn’t hold back. His commanding stage presence electrifies the crowd.
Price’s love for comedy started nearly a decade ago with a stand-up comedy course, and has become an obsession with winning over a room. He’s shared the stage with comedy powerhouses Dane Cook(Opened for him during his platinum selling "Retaliation" recording, Pablo Francisco, Patrice O’Neal, Tommy Davidson and John Witherspoon, Bill Burr, Rich Vos, Donnell "Ashy Larry" Rawlings to name a few. He’s gotten ink The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, The Dig, Performer Magazine etc. A regular at the Wilbur Theater, Nick’s Comedy Stop and Comedy Studio and Comix at Foxwoods, and on campus at many colleges, Price’s star is rising…and heading west.
In New York, he’s performed at Stand-Up New York, Gotham Comedy Club(Where he won the New York Underground Comedy Festival), and NY Comedy Club. Next stop, Hollywood. While entertaining the likes of Johnny Knoxville at the Sam Adams Grill & Groove Summer Jam, he met a director with a script. Price stars in Liquid Lunch Productions’ feature Overserved, an unapologetic comedy about working in a Boston bar.
Price has been invited to the prestigious Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival and Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival as well as being named one of Comedy Central's "Comics to Watch". Price can also be heard regularly on Sirius/XM. Keep and eye out for him in your town!
With a special appearance by Christine Hurley:
Christine Hurley loves what she does…making people laugh! Married to Jimmy Hurley and having five kids, Christine is never at a loss for comedic material.
Like any great comedian, Christine has an innate ability to see the humor in "everyday" situations. For years, she entertained family, friends, and neighbors in their kitchens, at barbeques and the grocery store aisles. The only difference now is she uses a microphone and a stage.
Christine’s maiden voyage into the world of stand up comedy was an open audition in New York City. The television network Nick at Nite was looking for "AMERICA'S FUNNIEST MOM." She figured if it didn’t go well, no one in New York would have known who she was any way…
Turns out it went well! Out of thousands of entries, Christine was selected to be a finalist on the nationally televised show. The producers of the show included Carol Leifer (Seinfeld show producer), Jeff Singer (talent scout, Montreal Comedy Festival), Jeffrey Ross (Comedy Central roast master) and actress Sandra Bernhardt.
Her stories and views on motherhood and marriage are exactly what everyone is living through…people get it and love it!
