Joe Yannetty:

A seasoned professional, comedian Joe Yannetty draws on his travels, his Italian heritage, family situations and Boston blue-collar upbringing to bring family-oriented comedy to audiences around the world. Yannetty has been a guest on dozens of television shows, and has headlined around the world. Joe has also appeared at CAESAR’S PALACE in Las Vegas, RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL in New York City, and the KENNEDY CENTER in Washington DC.

Joe’s career began at the DING HO, a comedy club and Chinese food restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Later, after quickly conquering the comedy club scene in New York City Joe brought his gift to Los Angeles and quickly became a regular performer at all of the top clubs on the west coast.

Joe has also made a name for himself entertaining at Corporate meetings, events, and private parties.

Yannetty has written for and toured with Rosie O’Donnell. He also spent some time as a morning show personality, writer, and producer on two of Boston’s top ten rated radio stations.

He was featured in a segment on the television show 20/20 regarding his appearance on Ed MacMahon’s TV show STAR SEARCH where Joe was victorious over the now famous Drew Carey.

The HBO movie SUCKERS, a motion picture Yannetty wrote and appears in, is based on a part of his own life. It has been distributed worldwide, and is constantly aired on major cable stations. In October of 2001 it was awarded the Premiere Video Award for Best Screenplay.

In 2004 he took to the seas. Joe Yannetty quickly became one of the most popular comedians on the world’s largest and most prestigious cruise lines.

Kristen O’Brien

Kristin OBrien one of the rising stars on the comedy scene! “Auntie Kristin” will make you laugh non-stop when you hear her views on marriage, divorce and dating. She performs at clubs and colleges all over New England and Texas.

Mona Forgione

With 5 surgical procedures, four pets, three kids, two shoulders full of anchors and one retired Roller Derby jersey in her closet, Mona Forgione is a Mombot by day/Stand-up Comedian by night. This Chelsea, Massachusetts native, now unsettled in New Hampshire, first stepped on stage to share her riotous tales after a journey of self-care for a midlife crisis landed her in the surgical center… twice. Now, fully retired from skating, Mona’s focus is sharing takes on her life’s most ludicrous moments “for the greater good”. Where bitter meets motherly, this Stay-at-Home mother of three has gone rogue.
