Maine Event Comedy presents 20-year comedy veteran Carolyn Plummer as part of the Johnson Hall Stand-Up Comedy Series at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, at Johnson Hall Opera House in Gardiner. The show, hosted by Mark Turcotte, will also feature Crystal Bernard, Uzair Malik, Nic Dufault, and Ann-Marie Keene.

Plummer pulls material from life’s hum-drum, day-to-day monotony, and puts a nail through the heart of whiners, self-loathers, and the self-sorry of the world. Her twisted perception of our common existence earned her a spot on Denis Leary’s “Comics Come Home 26” at TD Garden in Boston. She’s also performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, and the Women in Comedy Festival, and was named Burbank Comedy Festival’s “Best of the Fest”.

A welder by day and comic by night, Bernard performs throughout New England and was the runner-up at last year’s annual comedy contest at Lost Valley. Malik is a rising star in the New England scene and recently performed at the Boston Comedy Festival.

Dufault’s stories, impressions, and fun-loving personality have been winning audiences over from Portland to Bangor. Keene produces shows under Cat’s Meow Comedy. She also despises craft beer trends and drives all over New England hunting for Milkshake IPAs.

Each show in the Johnson Hall Stand-Up Comedy Series features at least three comedians and runs about 90 minutes. These performances are intended for mature audiences and will contain adult language and content. Ages 21 and up only. The show will be presented on our first floor “Logan’s Stage”.

This is a general admission show. Tickets are $22 for all seats. Johnson Hall is located at 280 Water St., Gardiner. Advance tickets may be purchased at
