The Hard Times Live is the definitive comedy showcase for punks, misfits, and bitter ex-hardcore kids pushed into early mosh retirement. For the first time ever this show featuring stand-up comedians, characters, a/v presentations, and true behind the scenes stories is leaving Los Angeles to invade the East Coast. On Tuesday April 14th, the tour hits Empire Comedy Club in Portland, Maine.

Hosted by The Hard Times co-founder and head writer Bill Conway and featuring stand-up comedian Dave Ross in the headlining spot, The Hard Times Live is the only comedy show that encourages stage dives and counts as "supporting your local scene."

Bill Conway is a Los Angeles-based comedian and writer. After perfecting the art of working in a warehouse, he co-founded the popular punk satire website The Hard Times and currently acts as the site’s Editor-in-Chief. In addition to writing satire, Bill is also a stand-up comedian that has performed nationally at events including Cream City Comedy Festival, Altercation Fest, and The Warped Tour. Bill is the proud owner of two cats and a dog, and still uses a skateboard as his primary source of transportation well into his 30s.

Dave Ross is dumb. He makes dumb comedy about his emotions. His comedy is so dumb that it is sometimes called “smart“, and it is so emotional that it is sometimes called "brave".

You might have seen Dave on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Or on Corporate. Or on This is Not Happening, Drunk History or WTF with Marc Maron. He’s made some shorts and sketches for Comedy Central and IFC. He’s a Moth Grand Slam winner. He tours like crazy and has found himself on Vans Warped Tour, Fest, SXSW, Just For Laughs Montreal, The Moth Ball and so much more. His podcasts Terrified (on Nerdist) and Suicide Buddies (on Starburns Audio) have both garnered hefty cult followings, and you also might know him as co-host of Nerdist’s Sex Nerd Sandra Podcast for a time.

At the current moment, Dave lives in beautiful Glendale, California with his very old cat. His first album The Only Man Who Has Ever Had Sex is out now on Aspecialthing Records and Little Dipper. Parental advisory he talks about cum a lot lol.

This show will also feature opening sets from the Portland Comedy Co-Op's own Connor McGrath Comedy and Rachel Gendron.

Tickets are just $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 PM, show starts at 8.

Tickets on sale January 9th!
