Scamps Comedy and Amazing Things once again bring together a terrific New Year’s Eve show headlined by Comedian Jimmy Dunn from the 2016-17 Boston-based CBS series The McCarthys. Dunn appears with two other Boston standouts — Tim McIntire and Chris D.
Dunn recently appeared on Conan and on the Judd Apatow Netflix series Love. He got his start in the comedy world telling jokes at a bar in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where he was paid in beer and fried clams. Since then, Jimmy has gone on to perform at some of the comedy industry’s most prestigious events, including Denis Leary’s Comics Come Home, Montreal’s prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and the Late Show with David Letterman. He co-hosts the Two Boston Guys Whack up a Pie podcast with Tony V., and can also be seen in theaters with Kelly MacFarland performing in the standup-and-more show Your Husband is an Idiot.
A former headliner at Amazing Things, McIntire has been one of the most popular and prolific comedians in Boston for more than a decade. His career has been eclectic — he’s hosted the Boston Music Awards, written for Nickelodeon, released two comedy albums, performed on Comedy Central, and been featured on NPR. His legendary “Thursday Night Fights” and “Geek Council” shows at Harvard Square’s The Comedy Studio are still talked about by comedy fans — some of whom were too young to even see them in person.
The show is hosted by Chris Dimitrakopoulos, also called “Chris D.” by the many people who can’t pronounce his last name. Chris has established himself as a Boston comedian on the rise. He works regularly at clubs and fundraisers, and is a member of the revolving cast of comedians on the popular standup theme show “How Men Think (Or Do They?).” In 2017, he won the “North Shore’s Next Big Catch” contest, and previously won the “Witch City Comedy Festival” in Salem, Mass., and was a finalist in the “Boynton’s Standup Standoff” in Manchester, N.H. He has performed on shows with top Boston/national headliners including Tony V., Paul D’Angelo, Juston McKinney, and Joe Wong.
