The River Comics plan to bring its stand-up comedy to the Franco Center at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 46 Cedar St. in Lewiston.

Comedians Karen Morgan will headline, Tuck Tucker will be featured, and Leonard Kimble will be host for the evening.

Morgan was born and raised in Athens, Georgia, but now calls Maine home. A former trial attorney, she began her professional comedy career as a finalist on Nickelodeon Television’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America.” Morgan’s comedy specials can be seen on Dry Bar Comedy, and her latest album, “Cocktails in Pajamas,” is available on streaming platforms.

Tucker is a Maine-based comedian who has been keeping audiences in stitches for the last 15 years. A triple threat, Tucker can be seen performing all over New England with his stand-up improv group Running with Scissors or with the improv-based comedy show “ComedySportz Maine.”

Kimble is an up-and-coming comedian from Auburn where he lives with his wife, two kids, and a cat that he doesn’t want. He spends his days as that IT guy who works on stuff you don’t really care about. Originally from Chicago, Kimble bases his comedy on things he has said to his wife in the car, whether it be about their kids or life in Maine. The sound of strangers laughing at something silly that he wrote in his basement fuels him to his next gig.

Tickets cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door day of show.

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 207-689-2000, online at francocenter.org, or in person at the Franco Center’s box office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
