NEW GLOUCESTER — Maine Event Comedy will debut at AMVETS Post 6 at 8 p.m. Friday, June 10, at 1095 Lewiston Road.

The show will feature a handful of New England’s funniest comedians including Johnny Ater, Michele Mortensen, Mark Reilly, Randy Williams and host Mark Turcotte.

Whether he’s taking light-hearted swipes at himself and his fellow Mainers or contorting his face into hilarious characters, Ater has left audiences laughing throughout New England and beyond since 2003. He’s performed at the Punchline in San Francisco and is the resident host of the Maine Comedy Festival. Ater has also appeared on “The Nite Show” with Danny Cashman and recently spearheaded a fundraising show for the Bath Food Pantry.

Mortensen hails from New Hampshire and was recently featured in the Huffington Post. She’s played clubs throughout New England along with Carolina Comedy Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Side Spltters in Tampa, Fla., and Coconuts in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Reilly, who moonlights as a U.S. mail carrier, was part of the Broken Record Comedy Show in Nashville, Tenn. He was a finalist in Portland’s Got Talent and a semi-finalist in Portland’s Funniest Professional contest.

Williams performs throughout New England and is a regular at the weekly Shaskeen Comedy Night in Manchester, N.H.
