Comedian Nick Griffin has appeared on Conan, The Late Late Show, in his own half-hour Comedy Central special and was featured on The Late Show with David Letterman eleven times.

Originally from Kansas City, Griffin lives in New York City, where he regularly performs at The Comedy Cellar, Stand Up NY, and Gotham Comedy Club.

Mike Donovan has been a headlining stand-up comedian since the late 1970's. Mike headlines in Vegas and Atlantic City and is often heard on WBZ radio. He was also a sports talk host on The New Sports Huddle with Eddie Andleman. Christine Hurley has quickly become a favorite in the Boston comedy world. She has been featured on Nick at Nite's "Search for America's Funniest Mom Contest," season 9 of "The Great Food Truck Race" on the Food Network, and "America's Got Talent!" Todd Angilly, the official Boston Anthem singer, has performed at schools, agencies, and sports teams all over New England. 

Celebrating five decades of touring, Tom Rush has been thrilling audiences here and abroad with hits like “No Regrets,” “Circle Game,” “Remember Song,” “Urge for Going,” and, of course, “Rockport Sunday.”  He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s. His music has left its stamp on generations of artists—James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, and Garth Brooks, among others.
