It’s Wednesday night, and if this week has treated you remotely similarly to how it’s treated me, you’re in desperate need of some comic relief. So stop for a moment, and be thankful you live in the Boston area, where comedic talent is at its best.
Start your weekend early with Will Noonan and Friends at Nick’s Comedy Stop (100 Warrenton Street, Boston)! For a mere $12, who could ask for a more hilarious lineup of comedians? This show includes Dan Smith, Ryan Staples, Ryan Darmody, John Pagan, Pat McCloud, Mike Mulloy, John Paul Rivera and, of course, the ever-talented Will Noonan. Grab your tickets now while they last!
Also on Thursday (and right around the corner, so you could technically make both), is Chris Zito’s Comedy Sandbox at Dick’s Beantown Comedy Vault at Remingtons. Your host and headliner: CHRIS ZITO
CHRIS ZITO traces his roots back to the infamous Ding Ho and the birth of the Boston Comedy Club scene. Zitos has appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, A&E, the USA Network, and NESN.
He has spent years of Boston Radio, most recently with his number one drive time show, “Zito and Jen,” on 104.5 WXLO in Worcester and on 103.3 WODS’s morning drive hit show “Zito & Karen Blake”. Dick’s Beantown Comedy Vault is located at 124 Boylston St., at Remington’s, between The Alley and Gypsy Bar in Boston, MA.
On Friday and Saturday, Mottley’s Comedy Club s is excited to welcome Liam McEneaney to Boston!

The Concert Film!’, based on his long-running NYC show. Ryan Clauson makes his Mottley’s hosting debut, with Josh Gondelman featuring on Friday and Sean Sullivan featuring on Saturday. That’s a whole lotta funny! Get your tickets here! Should I add another exclamation point? Why not!
