Comedians will stand up for laughs at Franco Center


LEWISTON— Five of Maine’s funniest comedians will perform a night of stand-up comedy  at 7:30 p.m Friday, Nov. 17, at The Dolard and Priscilla Gendron Franco Center, 46 Cedar St., Lewiston.

Lewiston comedian Dawn Hartill will host the Center’s Fall Comedy Showcase featuring Colby Bradshaw, Ryan Gorman, Mike Levinsky and Nick Gordon.  The show will be held in Heritage Hall, through the Oxford Street entrance.

Colby Bradshaw is the 2017 Winter Couch Comedy Classic Champ.  His clever observations and dead-pan delivery make him a crowd favorite.

New Hampshire comedian, Ryan Gorman is a truly one of kind.  He has gained quite a following on social media with his #DanceScaping videos.  Mike Levinsky is the founder and producer of the Portland Comedy Showcase, Maine’s longest- running stand-up show.  He has performed in Boston, Chicago and a Laundromat in Biddeford.  New Gloucester’s Nick Gordon will keep the audience laughing and thinking with his unique observations and odd points of view.

Hartill is the 2016 winner of the Strand Cup Comedy Competition and was a finalist in The Last Comic Laughing Competition. She hosts the weekend morning show on WOXO, The Mighty Ox and Saturday afternoons on Maine’s Big Z.

Admission is $5 at the door. The Franco Center is handicap accessible. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. All proceeds to benefit the Franco Center.
