Tonight Mike McCarthy is one of the headliners for a night of comedy at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown. Who knew the guidance counselor at the regional high school moonlighted as a funny man, roaming the clubs of New England for a buck a joke payback?
Oh, wait a minute, different Mike McCarthy. Same name, totally different career track.
Anyway, the other Mr. McCarthy is one of three performing tonight. Harrison Stebbins and Dick Doherty round out the trio. All three comedians are well known throughout New England and beyond. Mr. McCarthy has appeared on Showtime and Comedy Central and is know by some as the Comedy Barbarian. No word on what this means for the audience, but be prepared.
In his 45 plus years on the comedy circuit, Dick Doherty’s career spans decades. In the 1970’s he ruled New York city’s Copacabana Club, and in the 1980’s took to the beach at Merv Griffin’s Atlantic City casino, Resorts International.
Harrison Stebbins is the new kid on the block, making him even hungrier for laughs. You will be sated.
Showtime begins at 9 p.m.
Advance tickets are $20 and available by calling the Harbor View at 508-627-7000. Tickets at the door are $25. Sorry kids, this is a 21 and older event.
