AUBURN – Longtime New England favorite Bill Campbell and rising national star Myq Kaplan head a great three-comic bill as comedy returns to The Fireside Inn & Suites (formerly the Auburn Inn) in Auburn on Saturday, Nov. 15.

Campbell and Kaplan are joined by Portland’s Tim Hoffman, a regular at the Comedy Connection and at The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square.

The show is the first of three Saturday night shows in a row at the Fireside Inn & Suites. Other headliners coming to Auburn include Joey Carroll on Nov. 22, and Dave Rattigan on Nov. 29.

Bill Campbell is a veteran standup comedian who has pleased audiences for more than 25 years. He’s created a one-man show, “A Parenting Story: My Life as a Dad,” that has played in small theaters around New England. Among several TV credits are appearances on A&E and Toronto-based “Comedy Tonight.” The Boston Globe has called him “a unique brand of storyteller,” the Dallas Morning News called him “a particular delight,” and the Boston Herald cited his “jovial view of domestic life.”

According to his Web site, Myq Kaplan started as a baby and then grew up. “In between, a lot of stuff happened,” it reads, including his development as one of the country’s hottest young comedians, appearing at colleges, nightclubs and on Comedy Central. In 2008, he finished third in the Boston Comedy Festival, after a second-place finish in both the BCF and Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight in 2007.

Showtime is 8 p.m., and tickets are $16 at the door, $12.50 with a reservation and $25 per couple. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. For reservations, call 777-1777. The Fireside Inn & Suites is at 1777 Washington St., at exit 75 off of the Maine Turnpike.
