Dennis Fogg:

When Fogg isn’t working as “owner, bottle washer, maker of sandwiches” at Uncle Andy’s, you can find him on stage, sharing humorous stories about life’s absurd moments and that comedy goldmine we all have in common: family. When a Massachusetts law-maker proposed an anti-spanking bill last year, Fogg envisioned parents outsourcing the job to fourth graders on the playground. Evoking Marlon Brando’s strained voice in “The Godfather,” Fogg says, “How much would you charge to whack my son?”
Fogg’s first professional performance was 18 years ago at The Comedy Connection in Portland. Since then he has performed for diverse audiences throughout New England and his material has changed along the way.
“Usually my first jokes were a lot of blue humor and things that I thought were funny,” Fogg recalls. “When I was younger, I thought it was all about the shock value.”
Once he figured out who he was on stage, it was difficult to continue with the swearing and the sex and religion bits, Fogg says. He now thinks of himself as a storyteller and a gentle jokester.

Alex Giampapa:

Alex Giampapa began performing stand-up at the age of 19 and soon became a mainstay in the Boston Comedy Scene. He's shared the stage with industry heavyweights such as Bill Burr and Gary Gulman and has opened for Adam Devine and Erik Griffin of Workaholics fame. He's competed in The World Series of Comedy, was a 3x finalist in The Beantown Comedy Riots, and has been featured in The Salem Comedy Festival, The Motor City Comedy Festival (Detroit, MI) as well as The Mutiny Radio Comedy Festival (San Francisco, CA).

Alex produces too: after producing The Comedy Zoo @ UMass Amherst in college, Alex went on to create Comedy Party (Comedy-Party.com) with co-producers Ben Quick and Dennis Casey. Comedy Party currently produces 5 different shows all around the Boston area. Alex has also hosted benefit shows, recently raising over 2k for The Michael & Curtis Crocker Scholarship Memorial Fund. 

Giampapa's comedy makes him a popular choice as both a host and a closer, with a classic stand-up style blended with a fresh perspective. Described as "unique but relateable", Alex's personal and honest approach allows him to reach audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Alex also writes: he was the long-time author of a popular comedy blog, The G-Spot and has written various web series and screenplays including The Lemonade Stand & Blunt Cruise. While In Los Angeles, Alex wrote and performed Bane of the Party, a sketch for Brova Comedy.

Non-comedic accolades include becoming a State Champion wrestler in high school, and an NCWA Conference Champion/All-American in college. He also helped build the Customer Experience department for The Purple Carrotas well as Tom Brady's meal kit service, TB12 Performance Meals. Alex was 4th Grade Spelling Bee Champion, and runner-up in 7th Grade after a highly controversial (EDITOR'S NOTE: I totally got screwed and will never let this go) loss in the finals.
