COMEDY NIGHT with KENNY ROGERSON feat. Joe Espi
Kenny Rogerson, the funniest man you’ve never heard of, started his comedy career working the Chicago club circuit and at the famed Second City. After touring with the improvisation troupe The Comedy Rangers, Ken moved east and became part of the exploding Boston comedy scene of the 1980’s, where he honed his standup act to a fine edge “…sharp enough to cut the head off a rabbit at thirty yards.”
Fresh off his second nationwide “Rescue Me Comedy Tour” with Denis Leary, Kenny is a favorite in clubs, theaters and on the large and small screen. You may have seen him as “Kevin the Biker Fireman” on F/X’s hit show “Rescue Me” starring Denis Leary and as “Pat the Cop” on ABC’s “It’s All Relative” with Lenny Clarke. He has also made numerous other television appearances on such shows as NBC’s , “Late night with Conan O’Brien”, “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Comics Come Home” for Comedy Central and Showtime’s “A Pair of Jokes” just to name a few. Rogerson has also appeared at The Chicago Comedy Festival and TBS’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas.
The Boston Herald proclaimed, “He makes the absurd seem logical” and Las Vegas Magazine wrote, “As far as pure stand-up goes, it doesn’t get any better than Rogerson.” Michael Blowen of the Boston Globe raved, “He is fall down on the floor funny! Why doesn’t this guy have his own show?” Nick Zaino, also from the Globe says, “He’s as funny a comic as Boston has produced.”
A writer, sketch player, actor and comedian, Rogerson wrote and starred in comedy film pieces on Fox Television Network’s “Sunday Comics” and has made film appearances in “Fever Pitch” and “There’s Something About Mary.”
If these aren’t enough reasons to catch his act, then how about this:
Come to his show or he’ll come to your house!
Joe Espi started on the Boston comedy scene in 2006. His self deprecating style along with his heavy sarcasm has made him a local favorite. Audiences enjoy how he jabs at his childhood, dysfunctional family, and disastrous dates. People seem to relate to his blue-collar humor and his ability to be the punch-line of a joke.
