LACONIA — With comedy shows continuing to set audience records, Las Vegas regulars Mike Donovan and Ryan Gartley are coming to Pitman's Freight Room this Saturday.
Donovan and Gartley will perform along with Doug Blay starting at 8 p.m.
"The comedy nights have been extremely successful," said Pitman's owner Dick Mitchell who along with his wife, Connie, run the venue which hosts music events as well as being a wedding and function establishment. "I think it's a case where the word has gotten out that the shows themselves have been excellent and people know they are going to see high level comedians when they come to Pitman's.
"Every show we've had there has been at least one, and usually two comedians who play Las Vegas. We're now getting to the point where people are even buying tickets for the next month's show even before we post who will be on the show."
Donovan is a regular headliner at the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, and at the Flamingo in Laughlin, Nev., as well as playing major clubs and colleges around the country. Donovan's has been seen on Showtime and Fox and more.
Gartley is a 20-year veteran of the Boston comedy scene having played Las Vegas, New York and virtually every major club in the region.
Blay is a Boston comedy regular, who performs at comedy clubs and showcases around New England.
