Maine Deputy Turned Comedian Juston McKinney has a newly released Amazon Prime Special, and was also recently on Showtime with Rob Gronkowski for “Unsportsmanlike Comedy”.  Last fall he was on the bill with Dennis Leary and Jimmy Fallon for a sold out Cam Neely Foundation fundraiser at TD Garden in Boston.  Juston has multiple Tonight show appearances and TWO Comedy Central Specials.

About Juston:
Juston grew up on the border of Maine and New Hampshire. After earning an associates degree from the very prestigious Southern Maine Community College, he was hired as a York County sheriff’s deputy patrolling the same border in which he grew up. After 7 years Juston turned in his gun and badge and left the dangerous streets of rural Maine and moved to New York City. While living in NYC he worked his way into the weekend line-up at Comic Strip Live, Stand-up New York, Dangerfield’s, Gotham, and Caroline’s on Broadway. He has had sitcom development deals with Warner Brothers, CBS Productions, IFC, Comedy Central and the New York Times called him “destined for stardom”.

Juston’s TV appearances include 2 Comedy Central specials; a half-hour Comedy Central Presents and his 1-hour special Juston McKinney-A Middle-Class-Hole. He has numerous appearances on the Tonight Show both with Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien. He also toured as part of Blue Collar Comedy Next Generation Tour with Bill Engval and is regularly featured on Sirius/XM radio. Most recently he worked with Dennis Leary and Jimmy Fallon to a sold out TD Garden for The Cam Neely Foundation, helped Amy Schumer raise money for animal welfare in New Hampshire and featured Showtime’s ‘Unsportsmanlike Comedy’ with Rob Gronkowski.
His YouTube channel has over a million views, which include favorites such as “How to Shoot A Deer”, “Live Free or Die” and “Live Freeze then Die!”.  Juston has also been seen on The King of Queens, the Sidney Lumet drama 100 Centre Street. His movie credits include The Zoo Keeper and Here Comes the Boom. He currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, kids and dog.

About Jeff Koen:

Jeff Koen is a comedian and actor who stars in the independent film Heavy Times. Released in 2011, the film has earned him fans all over the world, some of which write to his Facebook page and ask if they can stay at his house when they visit the United States. Also, he said, it appears that while he has fans in several countries, he doesn’t have several fans in any country. The web site theman-cave.com called Heavy Times, “an original road trip flick unlike any that have come before it.” Another indie film site, Holmans, gave it four stars and called it “Wildly Funny.” Koen performs standup in and around the Boston area, and has toured New England theaters as the opening act for Juston McKinney. He’s also performed with the themed standup show How Men Think (Or Do They?) In 2011, he won the first O’Brien’s Comedy Contest in MA, beating out a field of 40 other professional comedians. In 2015 Koen won $10,000 on America’s Funniest Home Video’s.

 

About Josh Day:

Josh Day, a New Hampshire native and current Massachusetts resident, has been performing comedy for over six years. He began his comedy career after a freak paddle boarding accident almost left him paralyzed, and with a broken neck. After having broken his neck, Josh decided it was time to break a leg doing stand-up. Josh enjoys making people laugh away life’s trials and tribulations, if just for a fleeting moment. With a mixture of wordplay, personal stories, and self-depreciation, Josh has worked hard to grow his act.

Josh currently produces and hosts a show at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, along with a show at the Burren in Somerville, MA. He also produces and hosts the Stone Church Comedy and Music club series in Newmarket, NH. Josh’s priorities include comedy, helping people forget their woes, and assisting in bringing his brand of humor to your venue.
