The show will also feature Boston’s Ben Quick, Portland’s Kevin Neales and host Mark Turcotte. It’s for ages 21 and older.

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.

Neales has worn a hat while slinging jokes at Boston’s Comedy Studio, the Maine Comedy Festival and The Ice House in Pasadena, California.

When he’s not making the rounds in the Boston scene, Quick performs regularly throughout New England.

Turcotte performed at New York City’s Gotham Comedy Club and was selected for the Boston, Cleveland and North Carolina comedy festivals.
