Carlin has become a legend in comedy. Starting out in local nightclubs, his career took off in the 1960s when he began making regular appearances on such popular shows as Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. He has since taken his comedic ventures into movies, books, and HBO specials while managing 90 concerts each year.
Vance Gilbert came onto the Boston music scene in the early 90s. An ex-jazz singer, Gilbert wowed audiences at open mike performances with his folk music.
