Johnny Ater (Headliner) Life-long local and arguably Maine’s funniest, down-home comedian, Johnny Ater offers up hilarious and honest stories about life, family, relationships, work, and his colorful local friends, which he brings to life on stage for all to meet. Ater is not a bitter, self-hating comic, he’s vulnerable and embraces his uncool persona, which makes you embrace your own at the same time, winning over every audience, through communal fear of our collective and eminent nerdiness. THAT will make you laugh, BUT it’s his rubber face that you’ll be talking about for days after seeing his performance. Johnny has the ability contort his face in ways that will make you hysterical.

Kevin Neales’ (Featured) comedy material is like a good, cold brew, it’s WELL-CRAFTED! Kevin has been a regional favorite, performing all over Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts for over 15 years. And although Kevin appears to be (and is off-stage) an introverted nerd, he fully owns it and has made it hilarious. If you have ever felt shy or like a geek, then you need to come see the humor of Kevin Neales!  He has performed at The Comedy Studio (Boston), The Maine Comedy Festival and The Ice House (Pasadena) and has opened for Gilbert Gottfried, George Hamm, Lenny Clarke, Tom Cotter, Ian Harvie and many others.

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 to 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.

Nic Dufault Although a newcomer to the New England stand-up comedy scene, Lewiston, Maine’s Nic Dufault has opened for “The Queen of Boston Comedy”, Christine Hurley. He was a finalist in the Wednesday Night Live Comedy Competition in Auburn, Maine. Nic also advanced to the quarterfinal round of the Empire Comedy Summer Classic in Portland and competed in Maine Event Comedy’s Tightest Five competition. His hilarious stories, impressions, and fun-loving personality have been winning audiences over from Massachusetts to Maine.

Nick Gordon is a native Mainer who has enjoyed stand up comedy since the day he found a bootleg tape in his father’s sock drawer of Andrew Dice Clay, Live at the Hampton Beach Casino. While not nearly as dirty as “Dice,” Nick can still bring the funny and has performed all over the state and beyond. Being a proud papa and a tireless observer of all the “you’re kidding me!?” moments of life fuel his comedy, and he looks forward to continuing to write, perform, and produce stand up for years to come.
