Fugitive Comedy featuring Carolyn Plummer (Headliner) with Jay Whittaker, Brieana Woodward and Host Tim McKeever

Fugitive Comedy hosts some of the best and brightest comics working in the Boston area and nationally. The comedians who have joined us have appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, David Letterman, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, Comedy Central, The Jim Jeffries Show, Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! Podcast, NPR’s Commonwealth Journal, Lifetime’s Girls Night Out — and have opened for numerous well-known comedians in clubs around the nation.

Carolyn Plummer (Headliner)

God help us. Some comics rely on the monumental events of the day or the faux pas of the rich and famous. Not Carolyn. She pulls material from the hum-drum, day-to-day monotony of the life of everyman — and she does it well. Carolyn learned early on that she could lament or she could make fun. Possessing an uncanny ability to introspectively pull from places most of us hide, Carolyn puts a nail through the heart of whiners, self-loathers, and the self-sorry of the world and makes the average seem hilarious and larger than life. Most of all, Carolyn’s twisted perception of our common existence leaves audiences hysterically shaking heads in agreement with her assessment that the world is indeed a very funny place.

Jay Whittaker
Jay is a comedian, actor, podcaster hailing from Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Boston! He was recently one of the featured comedians on the DryBar Comedy Live tour, which was in over 70 comedy clubs nationwide and received millions of views on YouTube. He has appeared on the Disney Channel, Food Network, Lifetime Channel. He’s also received the “Best of Fest” award at the Big Pine Comedy Festival. Last summer, Whittaker filmed his secone comedy. Jay is a loving father, husband, and Air Force veteran.

Brieana Woodward
Brieana’s a lifelong New Englander who has appeared in clubs and venues throughout the East Coast, but she loves to tell jokes all across the country (having checked off 29 states so far in her comedy travels). She won second place in the 2022 Funniest Person in Massachusetts contest, and was a semi-finalist in the 2021 Boston comedy Festival Contest. Her rapid-fire punches, high-voltage energy, and raw talent are her dynamite recipe to blow away any audience!

Tim McKeever (Host)
Based in Western Mass, Tim has entertained crowds all over the country and performed at some of the area’s top comedy clubs including Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun and MGM and has opened for Nick DiPaolo, Lenny Clarke, and Jimmie Walker.

Doors open at 7pm • Performance starts at 8pm

SOLD OUT! Fugitive Comedy featuring Myq Kaplan (Headliner) with Janet McNamara, Pat McLoud, & Host Liam McGurk

Fugitive Comedy hosts some of the best and brightest comics working in the Boston area and nationally. 

Myq Kaplan (Headliner)
In the “before” days, Myq Kaplan graced the Fugitive Comedy stage on a number of occasions. So glad to have him back. Myq has appeared on the Tonight Show, Conan, Letterman, James Corden, Seth Meyers, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, and America’s Got Talent. He has a one-hour standup special on Amazon, “Small, Dork, and Handsome,” and two podcasts, The Faucet and Broccoli and Ice Cream. His debut album, “Vegan Mind Meld,” was one of iTunes’ top 10 comedy albums of the year, and his newest album, “A.K.A.,” debuted at #1. The NY Times called it “invigoratingly funny” and included it among its five “coronavirus best new comedy specials . . . to remind you of the old normal.” And now, here we are in the new weird!

Janet McNamara
For more than 10 years, Janet has thrilled audiences across the country with comedy that balances the search for identity with the search for a parking spot. From the first word, audiences are treated to an original perspective and an awkward energy that captivates undergrad hipsters and suburban housewives, sometimes at the same show. As an accountant with townie charm and no time for BS, Janet has opened for some of the biggest names in comedy and won a loyal fanbase of her own across the Northeast. If you’re looking for razor-sharp jokes delivered with a plainspoken flair, Janet will tell you to get a better hobby. But also, she does that. “Janet McNamara is a fantastic comic-with an amazing delivery and enviable timing of very unique material.” — Maria Bamford

Pat McLoud
Pat has performed at The Comedy Studio, Giggles Comedy Club, Nick’s Comedy Stop, The Comedy Connection, The Comic Strip Live, The Laugh Factory, and many other clubs. He has worked with Tony V, Gary Gulman, George Wallace, Artie Januario, and recently opened for Lenny Clarke at Comix Roadhouse at Mohegan Sun.

Liam McGurk (Host)
Liam is a Massachusetts-bred comic who is well known throughout New England for his laid back demeanor and cerebral, creative material. Danny Devito being typecast? Workplace heroism? Teaching your son how to become an impressive, respected beefcake of a man? Liam covers all these subjects and more. No issue is too personal or absurd for his brain’s faulty — or is it faultless? — wiring. He’s performed in Thunderfest and Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Vail Festival and the Rogue Island Comedy Festival. He won Massachusetts Funniest Comedian at Laugh Boston and was the Comic In Residence in 2018 at The Comedy Studio in Somerville.

Doors open at 7pm • Performance starts at 8pm

Full bar • You’re welcome to bring snacks and/or take-out from one of  Maynard’s many fine restaurants.

Tickets: $15/advance, $20/door
