Boston Comedy Festival presents Stand Up Comedy shows Friday and Saturday Nights, plus daytime Live Comedy Podcast recordings

BOSTON COMEDY FESTIVAL

BOSTON COMEDY FESTIVAL

The Boston Comedy Festival aspires to be the best multi-day comedy event in the USA. Host and founder and comedian Jim McCue host a podcast that has become a who's who of comedy talent that stops by to talk about what else all things comedy.  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.
