AUBURN – Snowed out of an appearance earlier this year, comedian Bob Niles, a New England favorite, will perform at The Fireside Inn & Suites Saturday, May 3. Joining him will be Sue Fracker and Boston comedy veteran Derek Gerry.

Niles headlines shows at comedy, Elks, Lions, country and Rotary clubs. He was just 20 years old when his first child was born; his second child arrived when he was 46. On stage, he explores what happened in between and the results are hilarious. From the Woodstock-generation to the 21st century, Niles has been a confused observer and a baffled participant.

Fracker is a transplant from Jackson, Mich., where she was a regular at area comedy clubs and hosted a local TV program called The Daily Fix. She moved to Massachusetts in 2007 and is quickly becoming a popular act on the New England comedy scene. She was born on April Fool’s Day in Fort Knox, Ky. She took to the stage to share her perspective on life as a “smart and sporty chick.”

Gerry is a regular at the Comedy Studio in Cambridge’s Harvard Square and hosts his own show on Boston-based radio station WMFO.

Showtime is 8 p.m. The Fireside Inn & Suites is at 1777 Washington St., just off the Maine Turnpike, Exit 75. Tickets are $12 with a reservation, $14 without. For tickets, call 777-1777. For more information, visit
