Shawn Carter (Headliner)
Shawn came up through the early 2000's Boston Comedy scene. One night in 2002, he stepped on stage at The Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall to try his hand at standup comedy. From that day on, he was no longer a security guard who worked at a hospital, he was a standup comedian who worked security to make rent. In 2008 Shawn was a finalist in the Catch a Rising Star competition in Island and in 2011 Shawn served as the Comic in Residence at The Comedy Studio in Cambridge and was selected as a semi-finalist in the Boston International Comedy Festival. In 2018, Shawn recorded his debut comedy album which hit # 1 on the iTunes Comedy Chart and landed in the top 10 on the Billboard Comedy Chart. During Covid, he and his wife Sarah moved to Tennessee and opened the Blue Ridge Comedy Club. Shawn has opened for the likes of Pauly Shore (fired after the first night), Deon Cole, Orny Adams, and other comedians that have since been cancelled and Shawn would rather not talk about.

“Not every crazy looks crazy,” says Amy, the comedian and motivational speaker who brings her boyish charm and dry wit to the stage with a storytelling style that shifts between stereotypes and reality. She delivers comedy with stigma-busting honesty. “I feel alive,” she says of the work. “I’m candid and exposed yet still fully clothed. Identified by the Boston Globe as a comedian to watch, and in Curve magazine as one of the “funniest lesbians in America,” Amy toured nationally and was a featured comedian in the film, “Laughing Matters — The Next Generation.” She remains a fixture on the comedy circuit, is a regular performer at the Boston Comedy Festival, and has been featured on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and the LOGO television network.
