The River Comics are a group of comedy writers and comedians in Southern Maine that get together to write jokes, do stand-up comedy, and laugh! This show features Leonard Kimble (Host), Johnny Ater, Colby Bradshaw & Dawn Hartill.
Leonard Kimble (Host):
Leonard Kimble is an up and coming comedian from Auburn, ME, where he lives with his wife, two kids, and a cat 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, Leonard 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.
In 2018, Leonard’s first year doing comedy, he was a semi-finalist in the Empire Summer Comedy Classic in Portland, a semi-finalist in the House of Bacon Wednesday Night Live Comedy Competition, and a semi-finalist in the Maine Event Comedy’s Tightest Five Competition in Auburn. He really enjoys the semi-finals of competitions because of all of the free beer.
Dawn Hartill is from Lewiston, Maine and is a mom to three teenage boys. When she isn’t shopping at Shaw’s, she delights audiences of all ages by sharing her observations on life, marriage, and the experiences of trying to excel at motherhood . . . Or at least trying to keep her children from needing extensive therapy. She is the 2016 Winner of The Strand Cup Comedy Competition and regularly performs throughout New England. She has appeared at Improv Boston and most recently did her first international show in Toronto.
Colby Bradshaw is originally from Pittsfield Maine, he no longer lives there. He’s been performing all over the state and New England for the past few years and has opened for comics such as Juston McKinney, Jay Mohr, Bob Marley, Emma Willmann, Rich Vos, and Doug Stanhope. There’s a good chance Colby is one of the best yoyoers you’ve seen live, but don’t tell him that because he’s not even sponsored and has left no lasting impressions on the yo-yo community. Hopefully he will leave a lasting impression with you, like the lady who made him do his Irish step dancing joke for her 90 year old mother at the top of mount battie a week after she saw him do that joke at Pats Pizza. Colby has a dry, witty sense of humor that audiences seem to enjoy.
Life-long local and arguably Maine’s funniest, down-home comedian, Johnny Ater offers up hilarious and honest stories about life, family, relationships, work, and his colorful local friends, which he brings to life on stage for all to meet.
Ater is not a bitter, self-hating comic, he’s vulnerable and embraces his uncool persona, which makes you embrace your own at the same time, winning over every audience, through communal fear of our collective and eminent nerdiness. THAT will make you laugh, BUT it’s his rubber face that you’ll be talking about for days after seeing his performance. Johnny has the ability contort his face in ways that will make you hysterical.
