“The Residency” gives one comic a month to work on new material, hone their craft and grow as a comic. Inspired by the NYC’s Beacon Theater and Boston’s Comedy Studio, ‘The Residency’ comic will be encouraged to hone their craft in front of an audience each Sunday for one month. The show will encourage comics to advance their act and their ability to promote themselves in the community. Each ‘Residency’ show will consist of several local comics and may feature national acts from the Saturday line up. The resident comic will also be encouraged to collaborate with the club to program the lineup for the shows.
