Emily Ruskowski is a one-woman charm offensive. With a style that’s totally approachable and instantly impressive, Emily is equally comfortable diving into personal insecurities or workplace nonsense. With an irrepressibly cheerful demeanor, she commands attention and delivers stories loaded with punchline after punchline. Emily’s comedy combines a quick mind, an infectious energy, and a totally unique eye for observation. She brings a genuine sense of fun to material that ranges from a career in social work to a passion for boy bands. Emily has been featured in the Washington Post and Boston Globe and has appeared on the popular 2 Dope Queens Podcast and Laughs TV on Fox.

Mo Awale – Featured On The Onion, Co-Producer of Maine House Of Comedy and Co-Host of the Podcast MoKeithTime with Keith Hebert.

Cheech is an attorney, jump-rope enthusiast, and comedian living in Portland, Maine, although she bravely self-identifies as “from Florida.” She is very beautiful, but doesn’t know it. She was in a sorority—and you can tell. Cheech was a finalist in the 2022 Portland Maine Comedy Festival’s New England’s Funniest Comedian Competition.

Casey Watson is stand up comic from Phippsburg, Maine. Recently he won the 2023 New England’s Funniest comedian competition. He has since opened for Dusty Slay, Zac Amico and other national headliners. Casey can be seen throughout New England, from moose lotteries, to Boston, to some lady’s front porch.

Hosted by Nikki Martin and Clenched Sphinx
Nikki and Clenched are the Pride and Sloth of Biddeford, Maine, respectively. LOLS is going strong in year 6! If the series were a child, it would be a kindergartener who knew far too many dirty words. Nikki and Clenched are happy to be your hosts, and sad to be away from their cats.
