Event description

Description

The Boston Comedy Festival is joining forces with Doubletree Guest Suites home of Scullers Jazz Club in Alston to bring the Best Comedians in Boston to the Allston.

Headliner Chris Zito. Chris has spent the last thirty years sharing his obsession with his family with comedy fans and radio listeners all over the country.

Starting out as half of the comedy team Zito and Bean right out of acting school, Chris Zito moved quickly to develop his own take on life as a (very!) young father.

It wasn’t long before he became a mainstay of the early Boston Comedy scene, eventually making appearances on Comedy Central, USA Network, A&E, and NESN.

Chris grew to love radio and landed on the JR in the Morning Show on WZOU in Boston in 1991. Years on the air in Boston and then Detroit, as well as countless comedy clubs all over the United States, eventually brought Chris Zito to hosting his own highly rated show on WXLO in Worcester, Massachusetts, then 103.3 WODS in Boston.

He is is an anomaly among comedians-the happily married man. He expresses his love of family life through an autobiographical journey of the trials, tribulations, and yes, the joys of marriage and family. Whether detailing life as an older father of a preschooler or shuddering at the memories of trying to guide his oldest daughter through her teenage years, Chris makes it clear to his audience what he holds most dear.

Audiences enjoy Chris Zito's clean, funny, and upbeat approach and constantly find themselves laughing out loud while nodding in recognition at themselves!


Hosted by Comedian Will Smalley has readily established himself as a powerful LGBT voice in the comedy scene. A purveyor of the silly-arts and dude-lover extraordinaire, Will is a former finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival.

Kwasi Mensah - bridges the gap between insightful observations about race and still thinking he could be a Power Ranger when he was 15. He's opened for SNL's Sasheer Zamata, Aparna Nancherla, and W. Kamau Bell. He also co-produces Laughing Liberally Boston, a show that combines comedy with progressive politics. He's been featured in SF Sketchfest, the Boston Comedy Festival, The Comedy Exposition in Chicago, and just recorded his first hour of stand up titled "Not From Around Here".

Andrew Mayer - With a quirky delivery and an offbeat sense of humor, Andrew Mayer has quickly become a mainstay in Boston’s comedy scene. He has performed in the Bridgetown and Laughing Skull comedy festivals. Andrew is the 2018 Boston Comedy Competition Champion!
