Our Headliner is JOHN POVERMO!

“Not your run-of-the-mill-standard-issue-garden-variety-stand-up.” Asbury Park Press

A Brooklyn born Jersey raised Stand Up with the perfect blend of self deprecation and optimism makes John a dynamic and unpredictable performer that’s both engaging and fun to watch as he struggles to make sense of himself and the world around him. Always open and honest, John’s charm and vulnerability on stage gives him the ability to connect with every audience allowing each show to be original, refreshing and funny as hell.

John has been featured in the New York Times and the Asbury Park Press. He can be heard on Sirius XM Radio, has been featured at the Jersey City Comedy Festival, The New York Underground Comedy Festival and appeared on Comcast On Demand’s “Young Comedians Showcase.”

John has lent his writing talents to a variety of shows, including ESPN’s Sports Nation, Current TV’s Viewpoint with John Fugelsang, Joy Behar’s ‘Say Anything’ on HLN, The Independents, CNN’s Newsroom as well as Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld, Hannity and VH1’s “Best Of” series.

 

Our Feature is JOANNE FILAN

Growing up in New Jersey, Joanne was repeatedly assured of one thing; “you’re so funny, you should do comedy.”  Armed with that knowledge, she headed off in the most obvious of comedic directions, college in Florida.  Her major, you guessed it, Marine Biology.  A couple little twists and turns on the road since graduating and she is now a steady fixture on the comedy scene.

Several years into the business and Joanne has never been more on top of her game.  She consistently delivers a unique “stream of consciousness” style of humor that keeps audiences either rolling in the aisles or on the edges of their seats, anxious to hear what she has to say next.  With an amazing gift for improv, razor-sharp wit, and a subtle delivery, Joanne is an unexpected gem.  A comedian so able to tap into the moment that no two shows are ever alike.
