Scamps Comedy presents another Comedy on Elm Street with another fantastic lineup. Elm favorite John Turco returns along with Kendra Cunningham, Danny Miller, Jonathan Tillson and Jai Demeule.

Showtime is 9:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door on show night. Tickets may be purchased on line, at the theater, or by calling (800) 838-3006.

Elm Street favorite John Turco is one of the busiest and most versatile comedians in the northeast, working clubs, colleges, fundraisers and theaters. He's also one of the most animated, punctuating his smart, sarcastic, satirical material with expressive faces and dead-on impressions. In addition to top clubs, he's performed at the Bushnell Theatre in Hartford, the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset, and the Somerville Theatre. He's also performed at more than 100 colleges and corporate shows.

Boston bred and Brooklyn based, Kendra Cunningham has been named as a comic to watch by Time Out New York and has been compared to Groucho Marx and Mae West by the UKs Chortle. A regular on the New York and Boston comedy scene, she has previously been in the Montreal Just for Laughs
Festival, The Glasgow Comedy Festival, and was a two-time finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival. She has twice appeared on NBCs Last Comic Standing. Kendras comedic goal is to get paid to write from her bed where she eats, sleeps, and occasionally entertains.

A native of Bostons South End, Dan Miller was born a comedian, and made it official in 1992 when he burst onto the local comedy scene. Since then he has teamed with local and national headliners including Lenny Clark, Paul Nardizzi, Dane Cook, and Dave Atell. In addition to standup, Dan worked from '95-'96 in a starring role in the Boston-area dinner theater production of "Mario and Mary's Italian Comedy Wedding." He also appeared in the Emmy-nominated Jimmy the Cabbie commercials, created for Olympia Sports by fellow comedian Jimmy Dunn.

Jonathan Tillson grew up in Boston, where he quickly developed an aversion to social norms and mainstream traditions. His witty rejection of conventional wisdom has been generating buzz throughout the New England comedy scene, as hes worked at fundraisers and clubs, and opened for national headliners including Nick Dipaolo and Mark Normand.

Quick, smart and sometimes philosophical, Jai Demeule has been praised for strong writing and a knack for twisting the world into a parody of itself. On stage, Jai transforms from an awkward person to an awkward person with a microphone, performing around New England at venues such as Improv Boston and the Stone Church in Newmarket, N.H.
