NEW GLOUCESTER — With a face that has launched a thousand laughs, Maine’s own Johnny Ater headlines Maine Event Comedy at AMVETS Post 6 on Saturday, May 6, at 8 p.m. The show will also feature Steve Cloutier, Jake Jacobson and host Mark Turcotte. Half of the event’s ticket sales will benefit AMVETS Post 6.
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 headlined the Maine Comedy Festival. Ater has also appeared on “The Nite Show with Danny Cashman” and recently provided voice-over work for an Agren Appliance television campaign.
Jacobson has seen the world and he’s not impressed. Born in Massachusetts, raised in Rhode Island, and enlightened in Africa, he now resides in Western Maine and writes intellectual-social-observational irreverence to be delivered wherever some good ol’ common sense is required.
When he’s not overhauling snowmobiles, tractors, and ATVs, Cloutier is on New England stages discussing creative drink concoctions and trying to figure out the strange beings we call ‘Mainers’. 
Turcotte was selected for the Boston, Cleveland and North Carolina comedy festivals and will soon make his national television debut on AXS TV’s ‘Gotham Comedy Live’.
Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased at AMVETS Post 6, 1095 Lewiston Road in New Gloucester. FMIl: call (207) 513-0742 or e-mail
