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!
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 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.
