Hosted By: Corey Rodrigues
For the past few years, Corey Rodrigues has been racking up comedy competition victories around New England. Once you see him onstage you’ll see why. Corey’s conversational storytelling tone puts audience members at ease and then, when their guard is down, he pummels them with punch lines. Rodrigues combines comedy from his own life and the lives of those around him. Mix that with a hilarious point of view and he’s able to talk about anything.
With Special Guest:
Carolyn Plummer. God help us. Some comics rely on the monumental events of the day or the faux pas of the rich and famous. Not Carolyn. Carolyn pulls material from the hum-drum, day-to-day monotony of the life of everyman. And she does it well. To Carolyn the monumental is easy…it’s our existence that’s so hard, yet so ridiculous. Some women look in the mirror and complain because they aren’t pretty enough, not rich enough, not young enough. Carolyn gives her reflection the finger.
The third child of a Congregational Minister and an “aloof” home maker mother; “aloof”? She’s clueless; her favorite band is Blootie and the Hoefish.” C.P. Carolyn learned early on that she could lament or she could make fun. See her once and you’ll quickly figure out which path she chose. And you’ll laugh. Possessing an uncanny ability to introspectively pull from places most of us hide, Carolyn puts a nail through the heart of whiners, self-loathers and the self-sorry of the world and makes the average seem hilarious and larger than life. Most of all, Carolyn’s twisted perception of our common existence leaves audiences hysterically shaking heads in agreement with her assessment that the world is indeed a very funny place.
