LACONIA — Comedy legend Robbie Printz will be appearing on Saturday, Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. at Pitman's Freight room in Laconia. Also appearing will be Carolyn Plummer, who is one of the top acts in Boston and beyond.

Printz is a regular in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, on cruise ships and has been seen on Comedy Central and the Letterman Show. He is one of the region's most sought after comedians having performed at the top clubs around the country as well as being a favorite at college venues. Printz is a previous winner of the Boston Comedy Festival, and was named the Improper Bostonian's Best Comedian. He has appeared on Comedy Central, NBC, MTV, and A&E's Evening at the Improv.

Plummer plays the top rooms throughout New England and travels the country performing at clubs, colleges, and corporate events.

"We weren't sure how the summer comedy shows would be received," said Dick Mitchell, owner of Pitman's. "In June we went head to head against a Bruins' playoff game and were down a little which is to be expected given the popularity of the Bruins. However, the numbers were back up again last month. We wanted to close out the summer with a really great show and having Robbie Printz and Carolyn Plummer as the main performers will do that."

Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance by contacting Pitman's at (603) 527-0043 or (603) 494-3334 or tickets may be purchased at the door the night of the show. Pittman's is a BYOB venue and it is air conditioned.
