and special guest performers Andrea Henry and Abhishek Shah
As an older, divorced dad with a young daughter, Dave Rattigan has gained new perspective at the cost of sleep, patience and logical thought. That’s just one area the veteran Boston comedian covers in his act, which he’s performed at clubs, theaters, corporate shows, bowling alleys, colleges, coffeehouses, shopping mall food courts, hospitals, a library, and office parks. His CD (Dave Rattigan: Thinks He’s Funny) receives airplay on Sirius satellite radio and other stations and podcasts, and his video clips have run on NickMom.com and RooftopComedy.com. He had a small role in the independent film Heavy Times, and has appeared in commercials for Olympia Sports and iParty. He made three appearances on the syndicated Steve Katsos Show. An award-winning journalist and former columnist for North Shore Sunday and the glossy North Shore magazine, he has written humor for the Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, and others. He has performed in the Boston Comedy Festival, Hampton Beach Comedy Festival, Women In Comedy Festival and performed at a Boston-themed fringe show at the Kilkenny Comedy Festival in Ireland. He’s shared the stage with The Beach Boys, Steven Wright, Jeff Dunham, Nick DiPaolo, Lenny Clarke, Bill Burr, Jonathan Katz, and others, and performed at venues such as the Cape Cod Melody Tent, the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord, N.H., and the Cabaret Theater at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. He is the host and producer for the standup stage show How Men Think (Or Do They?), and creator of the web series Post Office Golf League. He also recently lent his voice to a feature-length cartoon, Drill Booth, scheduled to be released in 2018.
Norton’s Andrea Henry doesn’t fit the mold of the class clown who grew up to become a comedian, but her dead-on observations and absurd view of the world have helped her become one of the best in Boston. Currently working on a project for Lifetime, and writing jokes for Reader’s Digest, her other credits include Nickelodeon’s Search for America’s Funniest Mom, Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight, Comcast’s Backstage with Barry Nolan, and Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh Off. Norton resident Andrea Henry is a finalist on “America’s Funniest Moms 3,” which begins at 9 tonight on Nickelodeon.
A native of India, Abhishek Shah is an engineer by day, and one of Boston’s top comedians at night. He’s a regular on the New England club scene, as well as performing at fund-raising comedy nights and in the standup show How Men Think (Or Do They?). He won the “Emerging Talent Award” at the Massmouth Storytelling Contest in Massachusetts, and was featured in the O’Dark 30 Radio show in Austin, Texas. He’s been featured in newspaper stories in the Quincy Patriot Ledger and the Harvard Crimson.
