Comedy Night with Kenney Rogerson in Londonderry

Sep 22, 2011 No Comments by

Hi Everyone,

What an unbelievably great SOLD OUT show we had this past Sunday with Taj Mahal. This guy is a legend and certainly played like one. It’s shows like this that have made Tupelo what it is. I’m looking forward to bringing you more shows like this. Giddyup! Gotta love his business.

As Fall approaches, we always sell more tickets and sell out more shows. Now is a good time to review our schedule to see who’s coming. It’s easy to miss new bookings unless you read our email every week. Summer’s a busy time for all of us.

Comedy this Friday! What happens when you put Kenney Rogerson and Jim Colliton on the same comedy show? People split their sides laughing, that’s what! Our comedy show this Friday is going to be one not to miss. See you there?
Come, on—call your friends. They’ll thank you for it.

We’ve booked ONE great new show this week!

January 12 Laurence Juber

I hope you are all having a spectacular week!

Killer show with Kenney Rogerson and Jim Colliton
For the past 20 years KENNY ROGERSON has been one of the top comedians in the region and among the best comics nationwide. Frequently referred to as “the funniest man you’ve never heard of,” Rogerson combines a brilliant wit and an understated sarcasm that has led him to the nation’s top clubs as well as appearances on the late night talk shows including Letterman, and Conan O’Brien as well as appearances on Comedy Central, Showtime’s “A Pair of Jokers,” Evening at the Improv, and MTV.
As well as making stops to perform in Las Vegas and Atlantic City Rogerson has appeared as “Kevin the Biker Fireman” on the FX hit show “Rescue Me” and as “Pat the Cop” on ABC’s “It’s All Relative.” Rogerson wrote and starred in comedy film pieces on Fox Television Network’s “Sunday Comics” and has made film appearances in “Fever Pitch” and “There’s Something About Mary.”
He is simply one of the funniest comedians in the business.
JIM COLLITON is a regular on cruise ships and the Tropicana in Las Vegas and Atlantic City as well as being one of Boston’s top headliners. He has performed in clubs and colleges across the country and has been seen on Comedy Central and Comcast “Comedy Spot Light.” Jim turns real-life situations, into hilarious stories. His ability to interact with the crowd makes every show unique and has the audience feeling they are part of the performance.

About the author

Scott Hayward is a Derry native who graduated from Pinkerton Academy and Wake Forest University, where he majored in English. While working as a financial planner and looking for investment property in 2004, he came across a building for sale in Londonderry. Then called The Muse, Hayward attended a performance and knew immediately what he wanted to do. After purchasing and doing a major remodeling of the facility, while learning as much as possible about the music business, he opened Tupelo Music Hall on September 11, 2004. Tupelo has since become a huge hit with both music lovers and the many artists who take the stage. The venue has received much critical acclaim and has grown each year in number of performances, attendance, and revenue. Hayward credits the success of the venue to the guiding principles of the business; to present top-flight artists in an intimate and comfortable environment with excellent acoustics and first-class sound reproduction, and to provide a memorable experience for the audience and for the artist. In October 2010, Hayward opened a second Tupelo Music Hall in White River Junction, Vermont, using the Londonderry model. He also operates Tupelo Venue Management, a company providing consulting, booking, and management services to other music venues.
