Boston Comedy Legend Barry Crimmins gets baked in Boston
The Boston Comedy Festival is cooking up a welcome back roast and toast 
for Barry Crimmins, the comic and producer whose hard work, vision and 
terrific sense of humor helped bring the Boston Comedy scene into the 
modern era. Crimmins founded the fabled /Ding Ho Comedy Club/ in 
Cambridge and then later was pivotal in starting /Stitches/ in Boston. 
These clubs were where Steven Wright, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat 
Goldthwait, Kevin Meaney, Jimmy Tingle and many, many others cut their 
comedic teeth.Crimmins has gone on to make a name for himself as an 
internationally renowned political satirist. He is the author of /Never 
Shake Hands With A War Criminal/ (7 Stories Press)
This tribute will be hosted by Boston comedy legend Tony V. The dais 
will be jammed with noted wits rarely seen on the same stage, including: 
Jimmy Tingle, Steve Sweeney, Mike McDonald, Randy Credico, Boston Globe 
cartoonist Dan Wasserman, The Steamy Bohemians -- Niki Luparelli, Lainey 
Schulbaum and John Ennis (/Mr Show, Studio 60/). This lineup of all-star 
talent is sure to fricassee your funny bone so expect great laughs, 
celebrity surprises, topped off words from the wizened and hilarious 
forefather of our Boston comedy scene. The fun begins at the Charles 
Playhouse Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 8 pm
