Opening the night and emceeing the evening, up and coming comedian Matt Barry will warm up the crowd for national award winning comedy acts Rob Steen and James Dorsey. Steen has been doing comedy for 20 years and has been featured on several TV shows including being awarded several invites by Dave Letterman on The Late Show where he is a frequent guest. A funny man of very high energy, Steen brings an audience together with a unique style of crowd participation. His act is a mix of situations and observations that Stein calls upon from life as an entertainer. He has been compared to Robin Williams due to his fast paced delivery and quick wit
James Dorsey has been described as being "out of his mind," "crazy" and "nuts."
After receiving his first D-minus for conduct in the second grade, little Jimmy D. realized school was not his cup of tea. "There was a popular after-school program for funny people like me – detention," claims Dorsey. He took his "Disruptive in class" trademark to the stand-up stage and never looked back. He shares life experiences through high energy, witty act outs and facial expressions. His usage of imitations and characters is incredibly vivid and entertaining.
Using timely material and everyday life topics like family and relationships as well as wearing many hats, Dorsey's comedy has taken him to comedy clubs across the country. The season 3 winner of the grand 'Catch a New Rising Star' competition at Nevada's Twin River Casino, Dorsey battled it out against 150 comics over 10 weeks. In the end Dorsey claimed the grand prize, an all expense paid stay in Reno, NV, to perform at the famous Silver Legacy Resort and Casino in front of thousands of seasoned comedy fans.
Dorsey has also been featured on the cover of Pulse Magazine, The Boston Herald, and Worcester Magazine. He has appeared on Spike TV, the MyTV Network and Comcast on Demand. He was also the grand prize winner of "Worcester 's Got Talent" competition. . Most recently Mr. Dorsey was awarded "Worcester 's Funniest Person" by the Worcester Rotarian Club. He was a finalist in the Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival and second runner-up in the Boynton's Taproom 'Stand up Stand off.'
