Comedy as a Weapon Presents: Summer Outdoor Comedy 2 The gang is back! Comedy as a Weapon is returning to JJ Tavern in Florence MA April 24th to kick off its first installment of its summer stand-up comedy series. Along with founding member **Tim Lovett**, host **Kim DeShields**, and new comer **Laura Grant** and slew of the funniest comedians around. Headlining the inaugural event is the very funny **John Moses.** John Moses has been delightfully offending audiences throughout the United States, Canada and the U.K. for more than 15 years. John was a finalist at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and is a favorite at festivals all over including; The Boston Comedy Festival; The Asheville Comedy Festival; The Cottage Country Comedy Festival; and the Dark Comedy Festival in Toronto where he roasted Porn Legend Ron Jeremy. John released his debut album On The Edge in 2012. It was voted one of’s “10 Best Comedy Albums of 2012,” and given their dubious distinction as “The One Album From 2012 You Should Get By A Comedian You Probably Never Heard Of.” It is still in regular rotation on Sirius XM RawDog, The Foxxhole, and Canada Laughs. In 2013, he became an immediate favorite on AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and was featured in their special “Best of Season One.” In 2015 he made his second appearance on Gotham Comedy Live and received high praise from the show’s host, the iconic Dom Irrera. In 2016 he made his third appearance on the show. He released his second album Upper Middle Trash in May of 2016. Raw Dog on SiriusXM named that album one of the best albums of 2016. An equal-opportunity offender, John’s comedy transcends racial and cultural barriers—appealing to black, white, and brown audiences, the young and old, upstanding citizens and the morally bankrupt. John’s style is shrewd, raw and uncompromisingly funny. Other Acts include Jessie Baade, Dave Sheehan, and Dj Groove will be providing the music. Seating begins at 7 pm and jokes start at 7:30 pm. ****for safety reasons will are selling tables over seats. Tables seat 4 – 16 people.
