Event Details

North Country Center for the Arts will open their doors and their 2021 entertainment season with the popular return of their Memorial Day Weekend Comedy Show.

Host and comic Greg Boggis has been comedy event producer at Jean’s Playhouse for many years, bringing the best in Boston and regional standup to their stage in Lincoln – and this year is no exception.

Headlining comedian Mike Donovan is a veteran of stand up with a career that began in 1978 and quickly saw him rise in popularity. He has toured 38 cities with Steven Wright and regularly appears in Las Vegas, N.Y., and Atlantic City; as well as appearing on SHOWTIME, and had his sports material featured on ESPN’s Sportscenter.  He is a prolific comedy writer, and his work has been published in Sports Illustrated, the Patriot Ledger, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Boston Phoenix, and Sports Collectors Digest – plus a book, 101 Stories of American History. Donovan also appeared at Jean’s for the 2015 Memorial Day Comedy Show.

Joining Donovan and Boggis, Rob Steen will appear as the featured comic.  A Boston street performer at the tender age of 12, Steen created North Shore Comedy in 1986, when he was 15. With juggling and improv skills under his belt, he decided to give stand-up comedy a shot. At just 21, he was booking more than 20 shows a week and performing, as well. He was the youngest agent in New England with the largest client base. Steen performs more than 350 shows a year personally and has been a regular guest on “The Late Show” with David Letterman. His roster of more than 300 comedians from Boston, Los Angeles and New York are seen regularly throughout the country and on television, and performing locally in comedy clubs and a wide range of fundraiser comedy nights for nonprofit organizations.

The Comedy Show is scheduled for Saturday, May 29 at 7:30 pm; tickets are $20, and general seating will be assigned by party in order to allow for distanced seating.

With the emerging reopenings throughout NH, be aware that the Playhouse is currently at reduced capacity to ensure safe practices, all of which are detailed on their website at – where you should be able to purchase tickets beginning the week of May 10.  (Advance ticketing purchase is the best way to ensure availability as box office hours are limited and unscheduled at this time.)

North Country Center for the Arts has a full schedule of performances and productions ready for 2021 – including an outstanding summer of live professional theatre.  Look for future announcements as NCCA welcomes audiences back to Jean’s Playhouse in Lincoln, NH!
