JIM COLLITON (HEADLINER)
Jim has been seen on national television shows like Ed McMahons Next Big Star, Comcast Comedy Spot Light and Comedy Central Laugh Riots. Jim can also be heard on XM Satellite Radios Comedy Channel. Jim has grown up in the suburbs and now lives with his wife and three children in the suburbs. What does he talk about? If you have ever been embarrassed about the contents of your recycling bin or tried to kill a flying bat in your house you will find Jims comedy hilarious. If none of these thing hits home, Jim has also stolen a school bus and everyone finds that story funny. Jims love for performing comes out every time he takes the stage, whether performing for 30, 300 or even 3000 people (yes, this has happened a few times). Jims comedy is funny, but also clean. This has helped him stay busy working all across the country.
After years of performing in New York City’s finest comedy clubs, Steve has spent the last 15 years in Massachusetts on the #1 Rated Morning Show in 5 states – the Zito & Jen Show on 104.5FM WXLO.

She performs regularly at MIX931 Comedy Nights with Chris Zito, and venues such as the Hartford Funny Bone, Mohegan Sun Casino, Jiminy Peak Resort, Salernos Seaside Function Hall among others. Kristine was selected to perform at this years Cape Cod Comedy Festival!
After receiving his first D-minus for conduct in the second grade, James realized school was not his cup of tea. So he took his disruptive in class trademark to the stand-up stage and never looked back! He shares life experiences through high energy, witty act outs and facial expressions. His use of imitations and characters is incredibly vivid and entertaining.
James was the Grand Prize winner of the Catch a New Rising Star competition as well as the Grand Prize Winner of the Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival. James has been featured on the cover of Worcester Magazine, The Boston Heralds Inside Track, on Spike TV, the MyTV Network, Comcast on Demand and was invited to perform in the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival in 2014 .
James performance on stage has been described as Flawless, smooth and original. A born professional. James has shared the stage with Gilbert Gottfried, Billy Gardell, Lenny Clarke, Gary Gullman, Don Gavin, Steve Sweeney, Bryan Callen and Steven Wright. He can be seen in every major comedy club in New England and will remain in your head and heart long after he has made his exit from the stage!!
