Your Closer: Maine’s Johnny “Friggin” Ater

Life-long local and arguably Maine’s funniest, down-home comedian, Johnny Ater offers up hilarious and honest stories about life, family, relationships, work, and his colorful local friends, which he brings to life on stage for all to meet. Ater is not a bitter, self-hating comic, he’s vulnerable and embraces his uncool persona, which makes you embrace your own at the same time, winning over every audience, through communal fear of our collective and eminent nerdiness. THAT will make you laugh, BUT it’s his rubber face that you’ll be talking about for days after seeing his performance. Johnny has the ability contort his face in ways that will make you hysterical.

He’s your goofy brother, your dorky Dad, your silly Grandpa, but after a show with him, he’ll just feel like “Johnny, your funny best friend”.
