Steve Bjork (Headliner) — The Boston Globe recently described Steve Bjork as “one of the top names” in New England stand-up comedy. He’s come a long way from his nights of frying up mozzarella sticks in the back room of a popular Boston comedy club. Today, Bjork is a polished veteran of the highly competitive Boston comedy. His material is intelligent and accessible, but first and foremost, it is funny. Bjork takes everyday life and turns it upside down in a way that every demographic in any given audience can enjoy. Steve has performed at all of the major Boston and New England comedy clubs in addition to clubs throughout the country.
