As the “funny kid” in school, Jason Merrill had always dreamed of making it in comedy. He found that whenever he was having a rough day, making people laugh always put a smile back on his face. With the support of his wife and daughters, Jason decided to pursue his ultimate goal. Starting with open mics in 2018, he soon began to feature at comedy clubs around the New England area. You may recognize him from Giggle’s Comedy Club, Lots of Laughs Comedy Lounge, Headliner’s Comedy Club, and Nick’s Comedy Stop. It wasn’t long until he started working with some other comics in the area, such as Lenny Clarke, Steve Sweeney, Tony V, Christine Hurley, and many more!
Dave Lamb has been performing stand-up comedy for 10 years sharing the stage with some of the best in the business including Lenny Clarke, Steve Sweeney and more. A full-time teacher, Lamb is a regular in theaters, and top comedy venues such as the Tupelo Music Hall, the Spire Center for the Arts, and more.
