He was a finalist in The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival and The Funniest Person in Cincinnati contest and won The Funniest Person in Lexington.

Live Stand Up Comedy returns to ASK in Kingston, NY!
The Comics Showcase is proud to bring you the headlining sets of Frances Gunn and Heather Candella.

Hosted By: Mike McGrath (Keegan Ales, The Comedy Works)
Special Guest: Andrew Tschudy (Improv, Levity Live)

Frances Gunn has been amusing and confusing audiences with his odd brand of irreverent, absurd stand up in the Hudson Valley for several years now, as well as producing exhausting conceptual variety shows locally in Kingston, his hometown. He was featured in the Altercation Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas and performed at the historic Stonewall Inn in New York City. He does a really good Stan Lee Impression and one time, upon noticing his elbow was bleeding, legit attempted to lick it.

Heather Candella is a comedian, writer, and producer who hails from Rockland County, NY. Whether joking from the heart, questioning absurd observations, or transforming into character on stage, Heather’s comedy has been described as smart, edgy, and satirical. Heather Candella is very active in the NYC and Hudson Valley comedy scene, selected to participate in the World Series of Comedy performing at such venues as Levity Live, Broadway Comedy Club, Laugh Boston, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, The Grisly Pear, and many more.
