Janet Cormier is a Boston based comedian. She is a shameless news junkie (with standards) and ADHD! She also paints and writes. Check out her column BbamBoozled NO More which appears in the online zine, Oddball Magazine. You can also watch her on SCATV Somerville Community Access TV as host of ARTATSCATV
Deb Farrar-Parkman has been touted by the Boston Globe as “one of the most consistently inventive performers” on the Boston comedy scene.

Deb also performs with the Merry Wives of Comedy. An Emmy Award-winning Producer and Writer, Deb is also the Northeast correspondent for the Comic Bible.
Jennifer Myszkowski a corporate drone by day, an on-air radio personality by weekend and a stand-up comic by night. Jennifer has been forcing laughter upon the good people of the northeast region since 2000. She has performed at comedy clubs, colleges and at all kinds of varied (and sometimes sordid) venues throughout southern New England. Hear Jennifer every Saturday morning on her weekly radio address, Bear Swaps on Bear Country 95.3. Check her blog for show dates and more.
Erin Spencer says funny things occasionally. Generally around a microphone. Based out of Boston, Erin is a stand-up comedian whose comedy often revolves around the oddities of living as a transgender woman in the city.
Anya Volz is a Vermont standup comic who is now based out of New York City. Within her first year of doing comedy she won first runner-up in Vermont’s Funniest Comedian competition, and shortly after was nominated by the readers of Seven Days magazine for Vermont’s Best Standup Comic. She has been featured in the Green Mountain Comedy Festival for two years in a row and has opened for Michael Palascak, Moody McCarthy, Liza Treyger and Sasheer Zamata. When she’s not tackling uncomfortable topics on stage, she can usually be found crying over a bowl of cereal to a tampon commercial or trying to pop a zit that she later realizes was actually just a mole all along.
