Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape has three homes: Below Howl at the Moon in Boston, New England Seafood Restaurant & Lounge in Methuen, and Park Grill & Spirits in Worcester. While the Methuen and Worcester locations bear the name Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape, the Boston location is known as Dick's Beantown Comedy Den. The Boston location recently moved to the Comedy Den from their previous location at the Vault, where they hosted standup comedians, including Dane Cook, who held a weekly gig there for more than a year, and fellow Boston natives Bill Burr and Joe Rogan. Dick Doherty's comedy clubs as a whole continue to detonate laugh dynamite with their rotating casts of national and local comedians.
With an agile army of acrobats from groups such as Cirque du Soleil and the Moscow Circus twirling and spinning along old-time-inspired machines, Boom Town ponders the connection between humankind and its manufactured labor assistors. Audiences are teleported to the old frontier mining town of Rosebud in 1865, where two shrewd, business-minded saloon owners hope to take advantage of the influx of gymnastically gifted gold-seekers. The battle for riches sparks a musical adventure full of pole-climbing prospectors, dancers atop swinging chandeliers, and authentically flipping cowpokes swathed in colorful costumes.
