About this Event

The Melrose Comedy Event is BACK with a fresh lineup of New England's best stand-up comedians. Join us for a night to remember!

About our comics

HEADLINER Mike Dorval:

Mike Dorval is a Boston-based comedian and self-described “left-leaning dad.” After a mere three months of performing, he won the New Hampshire Comedy Festival, defeating some of New England’s most established comics in the process. Armed with only his joke-writing abilities and quick wit, he quickly climbed the comedic ranks and became one of the youngest headliners in Boston history. He’s been praised by the Boston Globe as “One of Boston’s Best.”

Mike is known for his accessible yet refined material detailing life as a father, dutiful husband, and slightly bewildered civilian just trying to do his best. He easily wins over audiences with his approachable demeanor and keen insights into relationships, family dynamics, and navigating a society gone mad. He also draws accolades from audience members and comics alike for his skillful crowd work. He has been featured in Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, starred in numerous television commercials, and toured overseas for the USO. His album We Need To Talk documents his distinctive worldview and performance chops.

He has served as Comic In Residence at The Comedy Studio and is a favorite of the Boston Comedy Festival. He’s written and performed several one man shows and recently revived his interactive comedy show Trials of Love for Gloucester Stage, which previously had runs at the Charles Playhouse and Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater. He honestly hopes you’re having a good day.

FEATURED ACT Kathe Farris :

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 but quickly made up for it by becoming a Comic in Residence at The Comedy Studio and a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival. She is a fixture on local stages in New England thanks to her intelligent yet accessible material. Kathe performs regularly for private and corporate events. Known for her understated demeanor and punchline-heavy writing, her act impresses audiences all over the country. In addition to performing, Kathe is on the teaching staff at ImprovBoston and runs a popular comedy workshop through the Boston Comedy Chicks.

SPECIAL GUESTS:

JOSH FILIPOWSKI -

Josh has produced and performed in countless shows, including projects for NBC, Habitat for Humanity, PAID or PAIN?!, The Comedy Rap Battle and March Comedy Madness. Living in Costa Rica he hosted "The Extra Extranjero Show" on Beatz (105.9FM) and performed throughout the country. After returning to the US, hosting Comedy Speakeasy and The World Famous Comedy Store's Belly Room Fridays in Hollywood weekly for over a year, recently touring Milwaukee, Chicago & New York, and rocking Burning Man’s Center Camp Main Stage, he now lives and loves comedy with his girlfriend and cat in Boston.

Utilizing his sharp wit and keen word play, Josh entertains audiences from Senior Proms to Senior Centers, relating best with young professionals and/or college dropouts. A clever exploration of relationships and life experiences with topics ranging from meeting significant others to learning Spanish, Filipowski delivers hilarity guaranteed. Energized refreshing views on success, happiness, drugs, health and math combine with audience incorporation to create a truly FUN experience for all.

MICHELLE SUI -

Michelle Sui is a comic that frequently performs in Boston local clubs such as the Comedy Studio, Improv Boston, Laugh Boston and Nick's Comedy Stop etc. Her life goal is to affirmative action her way into an hour comedy central special named #MadeinChina. She was a top 10 finalist at Massachusetts Funniest Competition and selected as part of the Boston showcase for Montreal Just For Laughs . She was called the next Ali Wong (by two of her friends). With her bi-cultural background, her comedy combines social/political commentary and daily observations with a dark and unique twist.

JOEY KURIKI -

Joey Kuriki recently moved to Boston from Southern California, having performed at various venues such as the Comedy Store, Improv, Levity Live, and the Ice House. He now brings his unique perspective on everyday situations to stages all over Boston.

SAM ROSSI -

A sophomore at Melrose High School, Sam is quickly making a name for himself as a rare teen prodigy in Boston's competitive comedy scene. With only a year of comedic experience under his belt, Sam has already MC'd various music shows throughout the Boston area, and can be seen regularly at the world famous Comedy Studio in Somerville. The young Mr. Rossi has attracted the attention of many of Boston's veteran comics, including the legendary Jimmy Tingle, and completely wowed his fellow Melrosians at the first Melrose Comedy Event. We are excited to see what he brings to the table the second time around!
