Opener - Mona Forgione:

Having 5 surgical procedures, four pets, three kids, two shoulders full of anchors and one retired Roller Derby jersey in her closet, Mona Forgione is a Mombot by day/Stand Up Comedian by night. When not serving sandwiches or slinging jokes, she’s writing about the highs and lows and subterranean levels of her motherhood experience. Mona Forgione has been living an unfiltered comedy sketch since childhood. This Chelsea, Massachusetts native, now unsettled in New Hampshire, first stepped on stage to share her riotous tales after a journey of self-care for a midlife crisis landed her in the surgical center… twice. Now, Mona’s focus is sharing her takes on her life’s most ludicrous moments “for the greater good”. Where bitter meets motherly, Mona is real, raw and comfortably, uncomfortably relatable. Voted “Most Friendly” in High School, this Stay-at-Home mother of three has Gone Rogue.

In addition to her own Stand Up, Mona, as a female comedian, booker, show producer - owns and operates Gone Rogue Productions, LLC- producing Stand Up Comedy Events, Fundraiser Events, and other Live Entertainment Events all over New Hampshire, providing a safe & inclusive space for comedians and show goers.

Feature - Alex Giampapa:

Alex Giampapa began performing stand-up comedy in Boston at the age of 19 and soon became a popular act all across New England. He’s performed with comedians like Bill Burr, Hannibal Buress, Ilana Glaser, Sarah Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Gary Gulman, Adam Devine and Erik Griffin. Alex headlines shows nationwide, and has been featured in many comedy festivals including The Rogue Island Comedy Festival (Newport, RI), The Big Pine Comedy Festival (Flagstaff, AZ), The Boston Comedy Festival, and The Motor City Comedy Festival (Detroit, MI).

His edgy, but relatable style has made him a popular choice for many different types of audiences:

“His voice and onstage demeanor may be soothing, but that doesn’t mean the Actual News host won’t bring a scorching set of well-crafted jokes, hot takes on current events, and a good, healthy dose of social commentary” - Vanyaland

Alex has had digital success too: he’s been featured on Comedy Central Asia, Funny or Die, and has been the #1 post on Reddit twice. He’s currently the host of The Actual News on YouTube

Headliner - Paul Nardizzi:

Paul Nardizzi began his comedy career in 1990, quickly becoming a Boston area favorite and a national headliner within four years. Paul Nardizzi has made numerous appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Comedy Central, NESN Comedy All Stars. Paul also won the Boston Comedy Festival Competition, HBO's U.S. Comedy and Arts Festivaland is one of the most requested acts on XM Satellite Radio. As a top stand up comedian in Boston and the New England Area, he is known for his rapid-fire comedy, ability to engage the crowd, and tailor material to audiences.
