LOLS: An Evening of Local Comedy feat. Kate Ghiloni, Anders Nielson and More

Join OLS for an evening of laughs with local comics, hosted by Jim and Nikki Martin, with Kate Ghiloni, Anders Nielson, James Swaka, Jamie Roux, Cindi Brown and Nic Robes.

Kate's comedy is bright and thoughtful. Her honesty with herself and others shines a light into the darkness around us and within us in a pointed, yet joyful way.

Kate has been featured in festivals across the country, including the Limestone Comedy Festival, Laugh Your Asheville Off, the Seattle International Comedy Competition, Laughing Skull, Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, Out of Bounds in Austin, PortFringe in Portland, Maine, and more.


Anders J. Nielsen helps run the Portland Comedy Co-Op. You can see him Mondays at Blue and Thursdays at Lincolns, or just doing normal pedestrian shit on the peninsula.


You can see and hear James Swaka on stages, screens, and radios all across Maine. He hosts a TV show with Portland Media Center as well as the Hakuna Matata radio show on WMPG, where he’s also global music director.


Jamie Roux performs stand up comedy all over northern New England and is a frequent contributor to the Bangor Daily News and Portland Press Herald online comments section.


Cindi grew up on the streets, in the hood of your car; broke, exhausted, and hungry for laughs. She scrapped everything she could to get out of Gardner, Massachusetts —known as G-Vegas to the layman— at 18 and has never stopped writing even if the deafening roar of loneliness and abject poverty belittled her soul to molten ash.

Nic Robes enjoys laughter and spending time with his cat watching TV and has recently performed in Boston at the Middle East Club impersonating the 27th president William Taft.


Hosted by Nikki and Jim Martin: Portland’s Most Married Comedy Couple returns to host at OLS! They’re overjoyed to see all of your beautiful money.
