Reoccurring Shows

2019/2020 Season

Magnificent Bastard Productions presents

Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Much Ado About Nothing

We're back!

Shit-faced Shakespeare® landed Stateside in April of 2015 and has been bringing you the nonstop hilarity ever since! The Boston Bastards are back this spring with Much Ado About Nothing in a limited engagement run at The Rockwell and you won't want to miss this -- a little crazier, a zanier, and of course a little drunker.

Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 300,000 eager theatergoers across the UK and the US.

With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Much Ado About Nothing seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist - reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.

HBO Presents

The Women In Comedy Festival 2019

WICF is thrilled to again be sponsored by HBO in 2019 for the 10th anniversary of the Women In Comedy Festival. The festival will be held from Thursday, May 2nd through Sunday, May 5th, all over Greater Boston.

Over 100 comedians from all over North America will perform at many of Greater Boston’s hottest comedy clubs like Nick’s Comedy Stop, ImprovBoston, The Hideout, The Gas, and Bill’s Bar. Come explore the places comedy insiders go to see the headliners of tomorrow (and headliners of today, who often drop by!). This is one of the best weeks of the year to go out to shows because WICF has selected many of the top performers from all over the country who don’t get to Boston regularly, alongside Boston’s own top comedians.

WICF features diverse performers, and brings together individuals from all walks of comedy, giving comedy audiences a chance to see work from both local and nationally known comedians, and enabling industry a chance to scout terrific talent.

Emma Willmann, Jenny Zigrino, Chanel Ali, Helen Hong, and Liza Treyger. The hit podcast Bechdel Cast and Boston legend  Christine Hurley headline at the Rockwell in Davis Square, and this year WICF features showcases presented by HBO, The Onion and Clickhole, and Just For Laughs all around town.

We’re extremely excited to tell you on Friday, May 31st The Kerfuffle is back for another round! Come check out one of the most storied and fucked up independent comedy shows at The Rockwell in Somerville (formerly The Davis Square Theatre).

The Kerfuffle came from the imaginations of Jackie Arko, Hannah Foell, and Casey Malone—and it was the blind-booked vaudeville variety show de jour from 2012 to 2017. It features a mix of sketch, interactive, and completely undefinable comedy.

Hosted by Jackie Arko & Ben Scurria

Will Martin is a Boston comedian who charms audiences across New England with the vibe of a childless fun dad. He's performed at NYC’s Butterboy and Boston institutions like The Comedy Studio, The Gas, and Nick’s Comedy Stop. Will created the Will Martin Comedy Fest and almost headlined. He has a podcast about driving called Passenger Side. He performs improv as a member of the ImprovBoston National Touring Company, Face Off, and All Access casts.
