Boston comedians have a great
history. Having developed separately from the Los Angeles and
New York comedy scenes, Boston created its own unique flavor.
Each comedian would emphasize their own unique approach to standup
and methods of making people laugh.
While THEY improv is focused on bringing the best and the brightest
of improvisational comedy to your corporate event, this page has
been developed to remember those who came before us.
Here we pay homage to many of the great Boston comedians that
have graced Boston area audiences with their stand-up prowess.
Clarke - best known now for Rescue Me on FX, he was the emcee
for Ding Ho's open mic night.
Crimmons - homeless pioneer of Ding Ho's on Inman Square -
Chinese food and comedy, makes sense to me!
- Boston's Best Comedian for 1994 and 1995 according to Boston
Goldthwait - way off the wall
- One of the founders of the Ding Ho Club
Denis Leary -
becoming the most associated with Boston comedy by others, he
is also the founder of the Leary Firefighters Foundation
- Founder of The Boston Comedy and Movie Festival
O'Brien - Host of Late Night
Poundstone - made it big
