FUNNY with Pride
Saturday, June 1, 2024 – 8:00 PM EDT

FUNNY with Pride is a night of standup comedy featuring some of the country’s funniest LGBTQIA comics Vicki Ferentinos, Shawn Hollenbach, Kevin McTaggart and Will Berman.

For one night only, June 1st 8pm, the four comedians will take to the stage at The Grange Theater.

Vicki Ferentinos is comedian, chef, writer and storyteller. She has been a top three finalist in Vermont’s funniest competition, and took first in the Vermont Comedy Festival One minute Comedy Battle. Her first one woman show “LadyBug Warrior” earned her great reviews at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She’s been on Comedy Central, Bravo tv, The Food Network, WOR, and performs throughout New England.

Shawn Hollenbach (he/they/Shawn) is a comedian, storyteller, songwriter, and host. Shawn can currently be seen in “The Mortified Guide,” an official selection at Sundance on Amazon Prime. Shawn was the host of A+E Networks’ “BTWN2FLRS”, a celebrity interview show in a working office elevator surprising unsuspecting employees. He also created and hosts “Closet Cases”, a live show at the legendary Stonewall Inn with a companion podcast where LGBTQ+ comedians and storytellers share their coming out and transitioning stories. iHeart Radio called it “A Best LGBTQ Podcast for Millennials.” As a musical comedian, some of Shawn’s songs include “Double Filter Face” featuring Shea Couleé (RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 5 winner), HGTV House Hunters parody, “I am a House Hunter, Baby” and LogoTV’s first viral video and Thanksgiving nightmare, “Twerk Your Turkey.”

Kevin McTaggart has been performing stand up comedy for over 10 years and recently opened for “The Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley. He runs a very popular sold out show monthly at Sawtooth in Hanover, NH.

Will Berman is new to the comedy scene but has been taking audiences on a comedic ride with their sardonic delivery. They perform regularly at Sawtooth in Hanover and have performed at the Grange Theater as well.
