Kevin and Friends are Amazing

Wow, what a great show last nite May 2 at the Amazing Open Comedy Mique Show. THANKS TO OUR MIQUERS, Kevin Driscoll and his MANY frIends AND OUR AMAZING VOLUNTEERS, we had another amazing Open Comedy Mique Show.This again showed why we are the most unique comedy show anywhere.

Who knew when a ventriloquist promised a few "Friends" that they would be not only about 5 wooden characters, but about 20 very live real people with incredible musical talent. And about 60 audience members too. The Comedy Mique has had past connections with the folk Mike and Cabaret Mic, but thanks Kevin's inclusion of Ted Knowlton, Dave Morin and others, we now connected to the Jazz Jam too. Yes it's all AMAZING!! The birthday tribute by Kevin's group to our amazing video guy Frank DiPace was wonderful. Thanks to Frank, we can see some of our our shows on Access Framingham TV and if you are out of town, some are on-line at their web site http://webvideo.accessfram.tv/

Influences & Inspiration

Jeff Dunham, Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy, Paul Winchell with Jerry Mahoney, and Shari Lewis with LambChop. Do you remember the TV sitcom SOAP with a very young Billy Crystal and the Ventriloquist Bob? I do and that is why Jerry and I dress alike.
