Opener: Jai DeMule, New talent.
Abhishek Shah Bio: Having moved to the U.S. from India, a young man decides it’s time to try beef. Only problem: he’s Jain, a religion in which it is expressly forbidden to eat meat. And now he must tell the one person who will disapprove more than anyone: his mom.
Abhishek Shah performs stand-up comedy and storytelling all over Massachusetts. Originally from Mumbai, India, he has won several local stand-up competitions as well as a Massmouth emerging talent in storytelling award. By day, he works as a biomedical engineer — though making people laugh, he claims, is his true passion. Follow Abhishek by clicking here.
Liam McGurk Bio: Liam McGurk is a Massachusetts-bred comic based in Boston. He is well known throughout New England for his laid back demeanor and cerebral, creative material. Danny Devito being typecast? Workplace heroism? Teaching your son how to become an impressive, respected beefcake of a man? Liam covers all these subjects and more. No issue is too personal or absurd for his brain’s faulty — or is it faultless? — wiring.
Liam produces the weekly show 8 O’Clock at 7:30 and has performed in Thunderfest and Cape Fear Comedy Festival and Rogue Island comedy Festival. He was the Comic In Residence in 2018 at The Comedy Studio in Somerville, MA. He is also a favorite of local showcases like The Gas! and The Mendoza Line.
A gentle man, he has the temperament of a small purebred dog: initially standoffish due to anxiety, but warms up once he’s been fed and pet. He is reliably hilarious and, as many can attest, a loyal, well-meaning friend.
Jai DeMule Bio: Jai Demeule is new to the comedy scene, but they have gained attention in comedy circles for their quick, smart, one-liners and strange outlook on life. Jai has been praised for their writing and ability to let it speak for itself, even though they do most of the talking.
On stage Jai transforms from an awkward person to an awkward person with a microphone. Luckily for audiences that doesn't impede their ability to deliver laughs and bring the audience into their little bubble of weird and wonderful comedy. They have performed all over New England and is the co-host of The Studio of Madness, which hosts a weekly mic and monthly charity events for local non-profits.
