Carolyn Plummer God help us. Some comics rely on the monumental events of the day or the faux pas of the rich and famous. Not Carolyn. Carolyn pulls material from the hum-drum, day-to-day monotony of the life of everyman; and she does it well. To Carolyn the monumental is easy… it’s our existence that’s so hard, yet so ridiculous. Some women look in the mirror and complain that they aren’t pretty enough, not rich enough, not young enough. Carolyn learned early on that she could lament or she could make fun. See her once and you’ll quickly figure out which path she chose and you’ll laugh. Possessing an uncanny ability to introspectively pull from places most of us hide. Carolyn puts a nail through the hearts 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 that the world is indeed a very funny place.
Kathe Farris is a Boston-based stay-at-home mom, stand-up comedian, and snack cake enthusiast. She hit the comedy scene a little late in life with a different point of view and killer material. After becoming a Comic-in-Residence at The Comedy Studio and a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival, she recently recorded her national debut with a Dry Bar Comedy Special. With an eye for detail and an understated edge that speaks to grandparents and frat bros alike, Kathe performs regularly at everything from corporate events to a basement show full of crust punks (one time, went great). Her weekly show, Farris and Friends Comedy Hour, even became “The Boston Globe’s Critics Choice.” They didn’t give her a plaque so she made one. She’ll show you later.’ It’s with this experience and insight that Kathe helps to instruct and develop aspiring stand ups in the Boston comedy scene. Providing pragmatic instruction, tried-and-true approaches to mechanics, and personalized feedback, she spent four years running one of the city’s most popular workshops, sponsored by Boston Comedy Chicks.
