Presenting two of Boston's best comedians:
Tony V and Kenny Rogerson!
Join Jack and two comedians from his hometown of Boston for an evening that is sure to have you laughing all the way through the New Year.
Tony V has been a stand-up comedian for many years. He's performed on late night TV and appeared in the films The Town, The Heat, I Feel Pretty, Daddy's Home 2 and can currently be seen in the Academy Award-winning, CODA. Tony has also guest starred on several television shows, including Seinfeld and SHOWTIME's Brotherhood, among others. Just last year he had the distinct honor of performing in front of 35,000 people at famed Fenway Park in Boston, opening for Bill Burr. Tony V is thrilled to be included in this show.
Ken Rogerson, the funniest man you’ve never heard of, started his comedy career working the Chicago club circuit and performing with the improvisational troupe The Comedy Rangers. He then moved east and became a central part of the now famous and infamous Boston comedy scene of the 1980’s.
Most recently he taped a Dry Bar Comedy Special called “Way North of Forty” which has received over a half a million views. He was featured in Showtime’s documentary “When Standup Stood Out” and you may have also seen him as “Kevin the Biker Fireman” on F/X’s hit show “Rescue Me” starring Denis Leary or as “Pat the Cop” on ABC’s “It’s All Relative” with Lenny Clarke. He has also made numerous other television appearances on such shows as NBC’s , “Late night with Conan O’Brien”, “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Comics Come Home” for Comedy Central and Showtime’s “A Pair of Jokes” just to name a few.
A national headliner, Ken has performed all over the world. The Boston Herald says, “He makes the absurd seem logical” Las Vegas Magazine wrote, “As far as pure stand-up goes, it doesn’t get any better than Rogerson.” Others have written “He is fall down on the floor funny! Why is this guy not famous?” and “He’s as funny a comic as Boston or anywhere else has ever produced.”
This Boston comedy legend is not only a stand-up, but a writer, sketch player and actor. Ken wrote and starred in comedy film pieces on Fox Television Network’s “Sunday Comics” and has made film appearances in “Fever Pitch” and “There’s Something About Mary.”
For most of his life, Jack Gallagher has been entertaining, first as a kid for his family and then for his friends and teachers at school. Jack started his professional comedy career in Boston during the early '80s. As part of that explosive comedy scene, Jack helped establish such clubs as The Comedy Connection, Stitches, and the legendary Ding-Ho Comedy.
After moving to Los Angeles, Jack became a regular at The Improv and added big screen credits to his resume by landing a major role in the feature film Shakes the Clown with Bob “Bobcat” Goldthwait. He has also appeared in Heartbreak Ridge with Clint Eastwood and was featured in the made-for-television movie Incident at Ruby Ridge.
Jack can currently be seen as the co-host of the popular nationally syndicated public television show MoneyTrack and his work on network television includes his own ABC sitcom Bringing Up Jack, as well as a recurring role on the HBO original series Curb Your Enthusiasm. A favorite of talk/variety show hosts and audiences, Jack made numerous appearances on The Tonight Show with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, as well as NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
In addition to headlining virtually every major comedy club in the country, Gallagher has appeared in concert with Dolly Parton, The Four Tops, and Tony Bennett, to name a few.
Jack has written and continues to perform his eight critically acclaimed one-man shows: “Letters to Declan,” “Just The Guy,” “What He Left,” “5 Songs,” “Complete And Unfinished,” “A Different Kind Of Cool,” “Concussed,” and “A Stand-up Guy” in theaters and at corporate events across the country.
Jack is a three-time Emmy Award winner for his work as host of the PBS shows Money Moves, Off-Limits and Kids, Cash and Common Sense. He was also honored with the NAPE IRIS award in the category “On-Camera Talent.” When he's not working, Jack can be found at home with his wife Jean and sons Declan and Liam, trying to figure out ways to stay off the road.
