Called a “pop culture maven” by the Boston Globe, Boston native Ken Reid has been performing for over 10 years in various capacities. In 1995 he formed the seminal Boston Punk Rock group “30 Seconds Over Tokyo” at Boston’s infamous “Rat” club.
In 2003 while living in London, Ken Reid decided to try his hand at stand up. After performing around the UK he returned to Boston in late 2003 and has been a staple on the comedy scene ever since.
Ken’s unique and very personal story telling style has gained him a loyal fan base in the area. Using photos, video clips, and his own brand of storytelling Ken has written and performed four one man shows. His first show “Ken Reid’s Cusack Attack” was a sold out affair at the Boston Center for the Arts. His second show “Very Special Episode: Portrait of a Pop Culture Victim” was also a sell out in March of 2008. “Music to My Years” from October 2009 was widely praised and was the featured pick on Boston.com. His most recent show was “Shirt Tales” from May 2012.

The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square has cemented its reputation as the area’s top laugh lab. It’s also earned a solid reputation among industry heavyweights as a “must-visit” club for anyone seeking cutting-edge performers or writers for future television projects. The Comedy Studio – no better breeding ground around.

The Comedy Studio is located at the top of the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Square and is open Tuesday thru Sunday. The Comedy Studio was formed when a bunch of comedians looked around the industry and thought, “We could add a new twist to this”. Sometimes that means new talent, sometime it’s veterans pushing their boundaries. We assume more from the audience, and we demand more from ourselves. The casual, open, atmosphere of the Studio is the place where fresh talent is discovered and where national headliners come to try out their new material and polish up the old.
