Johnson Hall will present Maine Event Comedy featuring Karen Morgan at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, at the hall, 280 Water St. in Gardiner. The show will also feature Tuck Tucker and Mark Turcotte.

After years as a successful trial lawyer, Morgan became a full-time comedian in 2005 after being chosen as a finalist on Nick at Nite’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America.” She has worked nonstop ever since in theaters, clubs, and for corporate clients around the country. Her current DryBar Comedy special has over 1.5 million views.

Morgan’s southern style invites the audience to sit in the front porch swing and laugh with her while she talks about family, parenting, marriage, and life in general. She lives in Cumberland with her husband, three children, two neurotic birds, and a big dumb dog. She is still licensed to practice law in both Maine and Georgia but plans to stick with comedy until someone in her family gets arrested … again.

Tucker’s verbal wit and physical comedy have made him a favorite throughout New England. He’s a founding member of Portland’s Running with Scissors improv group and was a finalist on HBO’s Lucky 21 Comedy Showcase. He’s performed at the Hartford Funny Bone, the Rhode Island Comedy Connection, and the Comedy Nest in Montreal.

Turcotte is the founder of Maine Event Comedy. He was a finalist in the Funniest Comic on the East Coast Contest, performed on the Gotham All-Stars Show in New York City, and once facilitated a marriage proposal during a 2015 show in Biddeford … the couple is still married.

Johnson Hall will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all audience members and performers.

The show is for ages 21-plus and will contain adult language and content.

Tickets cost $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and may be purchased at johnsonhall.org or by calling the office at 207-582-7144 between noon and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
