Join OLS for an evening of laughs with local comics, hosted by Jim and Nikki Martin.

Zenobia Del Mar is a Boston born comedy powerhouse. Performing non stop since 2012 she’s graced the stages of The Comedy Store, Caroline’s NY Laugh Boston and the best dive bars in between.

Casey McNeal (#Addicted to Disorders) is a Boston comic who regularly appears in Clubs throughout New England and New York. He has appeared in the “Boston Comedy Festival,” “Mutiny Radio Comedy Festival,” eand the “NBC Tonight Show Comedy Challenge.”

Cindi Brown is a seasoned native New England comic who has mostly performed in Portland, ME for almost a decade. She won the grand prize poetry contest for in 2020. She’s been described as witty, cerebral and dark. Most importantly she gets way too much joy from cats.

Leonard Kimble is an up and coming comedian from Auburn, ME, where he lives with his wife, two kids, and a cat he doesn’t want. He spends his days as that IT guy who works on stuff you don’t really care about. Originally from Chicago, Leonard bases his comedy on things he has said to his wife in the car, whether it be about their kids or life in Maine. The sound of strangers laughing at something silly that he wrote in his basement fuels him to his next gig.

Al Ghanekar is a stand-up comedian in the Maine comedy scene.  He spent 8 years in Washington, DC as an actor working in different independent films. After leaving the acting world, he started stand-up comedy in 2015.  Since then Al has performed all over New England and different parts of the US.  He has also performed abroad in Sydney, Australia and Mumbai, India.

Jim and Nikki Martin are Biddeford’s premier comedy power couple. They’ve been producing and hosting shows together for nearly a decade, and very much want to meet your pets.

Covid-19 Protocols:

We are very excited to begin hosting live music shows again in our listening room. OLS is committed to providing a safe environment for all who work, listen, or perform live music in our venue. Because our venue is so small, we will require all staff, volunteers, performers, and patrons to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when they attend OLS events AND to wear masks indoors unless they are actively drinking, eating, or performing.

Proof of vaccine must come directly from the health care provider that performed the vaccination and can be a photo or physical copy of the vaccination card or record with an accompanying photo ID. Full vaccination means that the date of the performance you are attending is:

* at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or

* at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID vaccine.

We hope we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then we greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation.
