GARDINER — Maine Event Comedy presents two-time Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year, Joe Trammel, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center, 280 Water St. The night of uncensored fun will also feature stand-up comedy from Adam Hatch and host Mark Turcotte. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Described by Wayne Newton as “One of the most unique and incredible talents I have ever seen,” Trammel’s act employs music, props, costumes and seemingly endless energy. He was booked solid for more than two decades in Las Vegas and was one of 10 contestants on Newton’s 2005 television series “The Entertainer.”

Hatch was a finalist in Portland’s Funniest Professional contest. He’s worked with Comedy Central’s Juston McKinney and longtime Letterman warm-up act Eddie Brill. He’s also logged multiple television appearances on “The Nite Show with Danny Cashman.”

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

Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors when bought in advance; and $19 for adults, $17 for seniors at the door the night of the show. Tickets may be purchased at or by calling the office between noon and 3 p.m. Tuesday-Friday. The show is for ages 21-plus and will contain adult language and content.
