The Boston Comedy Festival is bringing the best of the Best to the greater Boston stage company Stoneham, MA on February 9 at 8 pm.
A mixture of witty “A-list material” and his ability to work off-script has earned Jim McCue the title “Boston’s King of Crowd Work!” It’s not only his height of six foot six that makes Jim stand head and shoulders above club comedians of the “stick-to-the-script” variety. Jim blends thought-provoking material and uncanny improv skills with a style that encourages audience participation. No two shows are ever the same!
Jim has been featured on Comedy Central, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” RedEye on Fox News, Live at Gotham AXS TV and on NESN in his native New England. Jim also founded and currently runs The Boston Comedy Festival.
Jim authored Embedded Comedian about his adventures entertaining our troops which Jim describes as a “field manual for comedians in a war zone.
