Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance through Pitman's or $15 cash the night of the show. Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Pitman's first comedy night in November drew 118 and the second show during Christmas week still had 88. The February comedy show drew more than 200 people and the show starring Rogerson is expected to result in another large turnout.
"The shows have really been high level," said Dick Mitchell, owner of Pitman's, which is also know for its music nights as well as being a function venue. "The numbers have continued to grow for the comedy nights. People know they are going to see a great show."
"All the shows have been really good and to be honest even better than we had expected," added Mitchell who plans to continue to bring in the biggest names in New England comedy.
Rogerson is one of the top comedians in the region and among the best comics nation wide. Frequently referred to in the press as "the funniest man you've never heard of," Rogerson combines a brilliant wit and an understated sarcasm that has led him to the nation's top clubs as well as appearances on the late night talk shows including Letterman, and Conan O'Brien as well as appearances on Comedy Central, Showtime's "A Pair of Jokers," Evening at the Improv, and MTV.
Scarfo is a 15 year veteran of the comedy scene and is a regular at the Comedy Connection, Nick's, and major clubs across the country. Scarfo is so well respected that as well as headlining from Maine to Los Angeles he has shared the stage with many of the top comedians in the business including Jeff Dunham, Bob Marley, Lenny Clarke, Victoria Jackson, and many more.
Scarfo is a high energy comedian who has an odd perception of the world and humorously relates those ideas connecting with a wide range of audiences. The Maine based comic is also an actor having appeared in numerous films and television shows.
Decker is a fast rising star on the Boston comedy scene, as he brings an easy going style to the stage that crowds find likeable as well as funny. Attacking the headlines of everyday events as well as finding the absurd in the commonplace, Decker's unique take on life has audiences laughing for as long as he is on stage.
