LEWISTON — Maine Event Comedy showcases some of New England’s funniest comedians Saturday, July 29, at the Lewiston Elks Lodge. The 8 p.m. show will feature Connecticut’s Krystal Dyer, Boston’s Shawn Carter, New Hampshire’s Michele Mortensen, and Maine’s Nicholas Gordon. Lewiston’s own Mark Turcotte will host.
Dyer, from Norwich, Conn., uses her quick wit and own life experience to put a hilarious spin on divorce, dating in her 40s, and raising boys as a single mom. She has endeared herself to audiences throughout New England and has won comedy contests at the Hartford Funny Bone and is a regular at Comix at Mohegan Sun.
Carter runs a variety of shows in Boston and was a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival. He’s performed in Las Vegas and is a familiar face at The Comedy Studio, Laugh Boston, Nick’s Comedy Stop, and Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy.
An accomplished actress, writer, and musician, Mortensen hails from Hampton, New Hampshire, and recently competed in New York City’s “She-Devil Comedy Festival.” She has appeared at Carolina Comedy Club in Myrtle Beach, Side Splitters in Tampa, and Coconuts in St. Petersburg. She was twice selected to perform in the World Series of Comedy and has opened for Boston legend Lenny Clarke.
New Gloucester’s Gordon has been winning audiences over with his self-deprecating brand of humor and recently advanced to the second round of the Empire Comedy Summer Classic in Portland.
Turcotte was selected for the Boston, Cleveland and North Carolina comedy festivals, and recently performed at New York City’s Gotham Comedy Club.
The Lewiston Elks Lodge is located at 1675 Lisbon Road. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Advance tickets are available at maineeventcomedy.com. The show is for ages 21 and older and doors open at 7 p.m. FMI [email protected] or 207-513-0742.
