The New York vs. Boston Comedy Series - Round 9 - Hits Collinsville again where New York Comics and Boston Comics meet half-way.
TEAM BOSTON - Joe List
Since starting his comedy career just weeks after graduating high school in 2000 comedian Joe List has been impressing and delighting audiences and fellow comedians all over the country. Joe quickly began rising to the top of the competitive comedy scene in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts prompting one local headliner to call Joe 'the future of Boston comedy'. However Joe has now set his sights on bigger things, recently moving to New York City, Joe is quickly becoming known as one of the hottest new comedians in New York as well, performing regularly at some of the top clubs in the city. In the fall of 2007 Joe was featured in the prestigious HBO comedy festival in Las Vegas to outstanding reviews. As well as being a regular favorite in clubs and colleges in New York and New England, in the last 2 years Joe has also been seen at many of the best comedy clubs across the country as the preferred feature act for Comedy Central's Nick DiPaolo. As well as all his successes as a stand-up comedian Joe has also recently written a short bio for himself in which he chose to use the words 'Joe' and 'he' instead of the word 'I' as if someone else wrote it for him.
TEAM NEW YORK - Sam Morril
Sam Morril, one of the fastest rising comics in New York City, is also one of the best joke writers in the scene today. How do you know that's true? Because he is writing this bio, and he wouldn't lie about that to get extra work. Sam won March Madness 2010 at Comix, and was featured in a 4-page spread in the Daily News as "one of the four funniest in New York?" He then won the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta, beating out over 600 (dreams were shattered!) applicants.
In 2011, Sam was named a “Comic to Watch” by Comedy Central. His comedy can be heard on Sirius XM radio, and you can see him regularly at all the best clubs in New York City. Recently, he’s been on “Gotham Comedy Live” on AXS TV, and the “The Artie Lange Show.” Sam made a big impression at Montreal’s “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival, and was written up a stand out among the “New Faces.”
Sam has been seen talking sports (mostly about his beloved Knicks) on MSG’s “The Bracket,” and he recently made his Late Night Debut on “Conan” on TBS. You can see Sam regularly on “Red Eye” on Fox News, and he recently taped a stand-up set for Comedy Central on the second season of Adam Devine’s House Party. Time Out New York says: “Morril's jokes arise from his humiliations—sure, a lot of comedy does, but he's especially adept at it.” Come see Sam before you catch swine flu or something. It’s out there!
