Mark Turcotte (Headliner) is a married father of two and lifelong New Englander. Most of his material is mined from his tumultuous upbringing, marrying out of his league, and his impending demise. Beyond that, he’s a treat to be around. He’s the founder of Maine Event Comedy and will soon make his national television debut on Gotham Comedy Live. Mark was a recent selection for the Boston, Cleveland, and North Carolina comedy festivals and was a semi-finalist at the World Series of Comedy in Sarasota, Florida. He also facilitated a marriage proposal during a show in Biddeford, Maine.

Kate Ghiloni’s (Featured) comedy is bright and thoughtful. Her honesty with herself and others shines a light into the darkness around us and within us in a pointed, yet joyful way. Kate has been featured in festivals across the country, including the Limestone Comedy Festival, Laugh Your Asheville Off, the Seattle International Comedy Competition, Laughing Skull, Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, Out of Bounds in Austin, and more. As a writer, Kate’s work includes The Washington Post, People Magazine, and KickinKitchen.TV, a comedy-cooking webseries. Kate has trained at The Second City (Chicago) and Improv Asylum (Boston).

Leonard Kimble (Host) is an up and coming comedian from Auburn, ME, where he lives with his wife, two kids, and a cat he doesn’t want. He spends his days as that IT guy who works on stuff you don’t really care about. Originally from Chicago, Leonard bases his comedy on things he has said to his wife in the car, whether it be about their kids or life in Maine. The sound of strangers laughing at something silly that he wrote in his basement fuels him for his next gig. In 2018, Leonard’s first year doing comedy, he was a semi-finalist in the Empire Summer Comedy Classic in Portland, a semi-finalist in the House of Bacon Wednesday Night Live Comedy Competition, and a semi-finalist in the Maine Event Comedy’s Tightest Five Competition in Auburn. He really enjoys the semi-finals of competitions because of all of the free beer.

Dawn Hartill is from Lewiston, Maine and is a mom to three teenage boys. When she isn’t shopping at Shaw’s, she delights audiences of all ages by sharing her observations on life, marriage, and the experiences of trying to excel at motherhood . . . Or at least trying to keep her children from needing extensive therapy. She is the 2016 Winner of The Strand Cup Comedy Competition and regularly performs throughout New England. She has appeared at Improv Boston and most recently did her first international show in Toronto.

Julie Poulin is an awesome improv and stand-up comic from Monmouth!  After doing improv for many years, she’s now making waves in her young stand-up career. She recently bested a field of 20 comedians throughout New England by winning the Maine Event Comedy’s Tightest Five contest. A few months later, she won the Central Maine Comedy Invitational at Lewiston’s Franco Center.

Nick Gordon is native Mainer who’s performed all over the state and beyond.  He’s never won a comedy competition, but damn if he doesn’t try hard.  With two kids and a day job, he’s just excited to be anywhere else but home or work.
