Stand-up Comedy

Maine Event Comedy presents Boston's Ben Quick at Island Dog Brewing, Saturday, Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. The show will also feature Alex La, Nick Gordon, Mark Moccia, and Nic Dufault.

Combining a wide array of comedic chops which translate seamlessly into his singing, songwriting, and guitar playing, Quick's energetic presence is as undeniable as it is uncompromising. The Boston native was recently featured in San Francisco's Mutiny Radio Comedy Festival, and was a comic-in-residence selection at the world famous Comedy Studio. He is a co-producer of Comedy Party, which presents five different shows throughout Boston.

Boston's La has lived in six states and three countries. He's worked as a Spanish teacher, waiter, trivia host, and once in a German food truck. He was a finalist in Laugh Boston's Funniest Person in Massachusetts Competition and recently opened for Eugene Mirman of the hit television show Bob's Burgers.

New Gloucester’s Gordon lives in a barn and was recently in a hockey fight. He's been winning audiences over with his self-deprecating brand of humor.

Dufault hails from Lewiston and took third place in the Wednesday Night Live Comedy Contest. He also competed in Empire's Comedy Summer Classic in Portland.

Moccia performs throughout New Hampshire and recently donated a performance for deploying military members.

The show is free and for ages 21-and-older. Island Dog Brewing is located at 125 John Roberts Road in South Portland, Unit 15 on the backside of the building. FMI text 207-513-0742 or email
