Gordon Clark and his Vermont Comedy All-Stars return for a night of stand-up comedy at Next Stage Arts! Featured performers will include several contest-winning and touring comedians most often seen in the Burlington area.
Julia Colasanti is a Vermont stand-up with Midwest roots. She has performed at the Vermont Comedy Club, Laugh Factory Chicago, the Lady Laughs Comedy Festival and was a regular at Shithole Chicago. She also produces Pop Up Stand Up shows for charity throughout the year.
Nicole D’Elisa is a Burlington-based musician who is new to the comedy scene, but she has been ripping it up at the Vermont Comedy Club, and what she lacks in experience she makes up for in stage presence and body hair. Nicole was featured in VCC’s recent “Best in Vermont Show” and has what many people describe as “Big Bush Energy.”
Bill Mitchell is a father, actor, punk singer, Ninja Turtle aficionado, and also dabbles in the art of stand up comedy. He’s been a performer in the Keene area for the past several years and has built up a bit of a cult following over that time (i.e., his mom).
Toni Nagy is a comedian who’s quasi–radical, pseudo-philosophical, somewhat-existential, and mostly funny. She won the “Best New Talent” award at the Broadway Comedy Club in NYC in 2017, and again in April 2019. She’s also a content creator, and her videos have been watched online over 60 million times.
Tracie Spencer has been doing stand-up for over a decade and is a founding member of the Vermont Comedy Divas. She’s performed in a number of comedy festivals around New England, and was a two-time First Runner Up in Vermont’s Funniest Comedian Contest. She produced & performed the one-woman show “60-First Dates” in venues throughout VT.
Liam Welsh was First Runner Up in the most recent Vermont’s Funniest Comedian Competition. He has featured for national headliners Jay Jurden, Solomon Georgio, and Michael Yo at the Vermont Comedy Club, and hosts a biweekly comedy showcase, “Free Stuff,” at Lincoln’s in Burlington.
