A night of adult humor
RUMFORD -- Three Maine comedians have the green light for adult humor on Friday and Saturday at 49 Franklin St., which will host Brian Brinegar, Jeremie Remian and Paul Hunt for two nights of uncensored stand-up comedy that will certainly have people laughing in the isles.
Brian Brinegar is a story teller that leaves no stone unturned. Drawing from his experiences as an office monkey and infomercial addict, Brian draws the crowd in and leaves them wanting more. Originally from Los Angeles Brian performs all over New England, can be seen on the Comedy Time Network.
The Portland Phoenix says, Brian’s brand of deep-blue humor has made people call him a variety of names. One they settle on: Funny. The open-mic night he hosts every Thursday at Slainte in Portland, has brought stand-up relevance to a swath of younger comics, and Brinegar’s audacity and veteran presence colors him as the sort of vile, good-hearted uncle people thought Bill Clinton was. Watching and hearing LA transplant Brian Brinegar perform, you don't have to worry about the singular discomfort of witnessing an unfunny person on stage. He's animated, he's bold and honest and surprising, and has
been named Portland’s Best Comic 2008, 2009, 2010 by the Portland Phoenix “Best Of” Awards.
Jeremie Remian has moved up the charts as one of the funniest magicians in Maine. His routines are interwoven with comedy, incredible feats of magic and baffling mind reading. His show features a high level of crowd involvement, as he invites the audience to participate in his presentation of magic and comedy. In 2009, he was awarded the Ralph Greenwood trophy for Comedy Magic by Portland's Society of American Magicians. Jeremie has been a crowd pleaser for over 10 years and his shows just keep getting better!
Paul Hunt has been performing stand up for ten years. Originally from Maine, Paul started his career in Manhattan. Paul has performed at clubs and colleges all over the US and has TV credits that include last Comic Standing and a national "Subway" commercial. He currently runs unrealcomedy.com where you can find his latest articles and videos.
