Thank you to the Improper Bostonian! Jimmy Tingle just voted "Boston's Best Activist with a Funny Bone!"
"Jimmy Tingle for President": Tingle’s timely one-man show invites you to consider just how the world might be a little different if this master of social and political humor ran the country. In true Tingle form, his new work employs the gift of humor as an alternative way to look at policy, and for Tingle to make a few points of his own about the state of our nation. Be the very first to check out these very special preview shows before Tingle brings the show to Edinburgh, Scotland, at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it will run for the entire month of August. New dates and times! Thursday, July 12 at 7:30 PM; Friday, July 13, at 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM; Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM; and continuing thru July 28.

"Jesus: The Guantanamo Years": This show has been postponed. Tentative opening: July 19. Performances to take place Thursdays thru Sundays at 7:30 PM thru August 12. Starring Abie Philbin Bowman. The award-winning controversial comedy hit makes its U.S. premiere! Direct from the West End in London, following SOLD OUT performances in Dublin, Belfast, Galway and Edinburgh. Jesus Christ (the original stand-up comedian) returns to earth for His long-awaited comeback tour. But He doesn't get past U.S. immigration, because He's a bearded, Middle-Eastern guy, prepared to die as a religious martyr. The Dublin-based comedian Abie Philbin Bowman took the '06 Edinburgh Fringe Festival by storm. Reserved seating available.

"ColorStruck: Boston's 8th Annual Women of Color in Comedy": They’re baaaack! After two successful performances in last year’s Boston Comedy Festival, the ladies anointed by the Boston Globe as "Frank, Funny and Fabulous," return to Davis Square for their annual three-night run at Jimmy Tingle’s OFF BROADWAY Theater. Join these sizzling, sassy comediennes from Boston and beyond for stand-up, sketch and some side-splitting humor. August 17 thru 19. For lineups and more information, click here. Reserved seating available.

"Mort Sahl Saves The World": The legendary political satirist Mort Sahl returns to Jimmy Tingle’s OFF BROADWAY Theater for 4 shows only, August 23 - 26! A rare Boston area performance. On June 28 of 2007, Jay Leno, Paula Poundstone, and Jonathan Winters were among the scheduled roster of comedians who honored this icon of comedy at a special tribute show at the Wadsworth Theater in Los Angeles. The celebration of Mort Sahl and his 80th birthday continues on the East Coast - with this very special appearance by one of the true greats of comedy. JTOB is honored to present this pioneer. Reserved seating available.

"Jim Morris and the Presidential Follies of 2008": Called by the New Yorker Magazine "the country’s leading political impressionist" Jim Morris creates a hilarious living political cartoon in his one man show the "Presidential Follies of 2008". Jim takes on the administration and the candidates as the real West Wing springs to comedic life. George W. Bush wrestles with the presidency while the contenders, freshly etched by Jim, audition for the lead role in the next edition of America ’s political funnies. Fresh, sharp, funny, clever, always topical, Jim has been acclaimed a classic political comedian. August 30 thru September 30. Reserved seating available.

See you soon!
