See also

Need some laughter to spice up your upcoming Ides of March? On Mar. 15, 2014, you can get a pick-me-up from all this snow and go to "Comedy Fest Worcester" at the Palladium in (you guessed it) Worcester, Mass. This 18+ event with seven comedians is sponsored by Stand-Up for Laughs Comedy, the Worcester Palladium, and Franks Comedy Safari.

The scheduled performers include:

  • Kevin Barbare
  • Lenny Clarke
  • Nick DiPaolo
  • Jon Fisch
  • Frank Foley
  • Dave Russo
  • Steve Sweeney

Nick Dipaolo should be a name that you recognize. He's a Comedy Central comedian as well as a frequent guest on basically all of the late night talk shows and several radio shows. Moreover, he's a Massachusetts native, from Danvers, living in New York. You can sample several clips of his stand-up here. He will be the main feature of the evening.

Lenny Clarke is the other headliner for comedy. He's been in the business since the '80s and is originally from Cambridge, Mass. You might know him from 'Rescue Me'. He also has some comedy clips on Comedy Central.

Kevin Barbare is a noted impressionist comedian, formerly from the WAAF radio station. Check out his antics on Youtube.

Jon Fisch got his first national television debut on the Late Night Show with David Letterman. You can view the clip, available here.

Frank Foley operates Frank's Comedy Safari which mainly operates out of Irish Times in Worcester. He has been a radio host in Worcester for 20 years.

Dave Russo is known for being featured on "Comics Come Home with Denis Leary", USO shows for the troops, and his other charity work. There's a video of his stand-up here.

Steve Sweeney has an animated video clip featured on the Comedy Central website. His Boston accent is a trademark of his and he likes to play around with dialects. He's been a few film cameos and co-owns the Steve Sweeney's Comedy Club in Boston.

This show should be packed full of laughs and therapeutic to us tough New Englanders, who should be emerging out of a dismal winter.

You can purchase tickets at the Palladium Box Office or the Palladium's website.
