Triple bill for comedy night at Pitman’s on Saturday

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room will host a Live Comedy show featuring George Hamm, Mike Prior and Johnny Cail on Saturday, August 16 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door. 

George Hamm has brought laughter around the nation and beyond - from the Comedy Connection in Portland, Maine to the Improv in Los Angeles. He has appeared at the Comedy Store, LA Cabaret, Comedy Connection in both Portland and Boston. 
Mike Prior has toured with several national recording artists such as Weird Al Yankovick, and Randy Travis. He was one of the featured performers on a Comedy Central special in 2004, and has played supporting roles in commercials for the New England Aquarium and Boston Center for the Arts. His ability to work clean has made him a fan favorite at hundreds of corporate and college venues. Mike has an amazing ability to turn life's most frustrating moments into hilarious stories in which everyone can relate. The victim of a recent mugging, Mike now calls himself a professional victim. He believes that if there was ever a school for professional criminals, he would be the first homework assignment.

Johnny Cail grew up in a trailer in Westbrook, Maine and currently still lives there; however, Cail is hoping that comedy will change that. Cail's home life is something that he touches on in his stand-up comedy routine. Cail is now considered one of the hottest opening acts in the New England area and has recently opened for national headlining acts such as Bob Marley, James Stevens III, Artie Fletcher and Butch Bradley. He can also be seen opening for New England comedy heavy weights DJ Hazard, Paul Nardizzi and a long list of others.
