Vulture’s Top Comics You Should and Will Know (2023)

Following sold-out shows in New York, London, LA. Australia, Edinburgh and India, award-winning clown Zach Zucker makes his Boston debut with an hour of high-energy, absurdist, standup comedy, as the human tragi-comedy know as Jack Tucker.

Hailing from the historic New York ‘The Big Apple’ City, Jack Tucker is every bad joke, cringe-y trope, inappropriate statement and all the worst comics you’ve ever had the displeasure of reviewing in one. A well-respected journeyman and bonafide legend in the Upstate New York regional comedy scene, Jack Tucker is the ultimate comedian’s comedian. If the joke doesn’t land, it’s not because it isn’t funny – you just didn’t get it.

ZACH ZUCKER (Performer/Creator/Producer) is an award-winning performer and producer who’s been touring the international comedy circuit for the past decade. He is the creator of Stamptown, the alter-ego of New York’s greatest comedian Jack Tucker, and one half of Norwegian-American clown duo, Zach & Viggo. Zach has sold out shows at Netflix Is A Joke, Just For Laughs, Glastonbury, The Roxy, Soho Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe, O2 Arena, Comedy Central, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and Off-Broadway in New York City. He will appear in the TBS reboot of “The Joe Schmo Show,” stars alongside Kiernan Shipka in the MAX feature film Sweethearts, and frequently collaborates with funk-punk group, Thumpasaurus. As a producer he’s worked with acts such as Jordan Gray, Randy Feltface, BriTANicK, Courtney Pauroso, Martin Urbano, Ike Ufomadu, and many more. He is a graduate of École Philippe Gaulier in France and has worked with Sacha Baron Cohen, David Cross and Rack Jackson, among others. Most importantly, Zach is a World War II history buff. He knows all 34 million soldiers in the Red Army by name and is currently working his way through the 3 million people who served in the British Army between 1940 and 1945. Zach is “bisexual”.

JONNY WOOLLEY (Director/Co-Divisor) the mystery man up in the booth, Woolley is responsible for directing, teching and designing most Stamptown shows. Known by his colleagues as “Mr. X” and “Maple Boy” by his peers, he is the director of the award-winning clown duo, Zach & Viggo, and has worked with acts such as Julia Masli, Josh Glanc, Neal Portenza and Damien Power. He famously performed at The Royal Variety Show in London alongside Viggo Venn (winner of Britain’s Got Talent) where they got to perform for the King of England – spoiler alert, he loved it. Woolley is reported to have an IQ of over 200 but does not have a job. The celestial thirst of his inner mind cannot be quenched by the machinations of modern labour, so he now spends his days smoking weed and thinking about the beauty of God.

DYLAN WOODLEY (Opening Act/Co-Divisor) Clocking in at 6’7” and 350lbs, Dylan is the largest brickfilmer in the world. His magnificent size has been the subject of many a song throughout history. When he was a boy, his town would gather round his sleeping body and chant to the heavens for growth and good health. A proud Canadian, has made animated videos for LEGO, Pokémon, Hasbro and Ed Sheeran, amassing millions of views online. Dylan is the official global ambassador of DylanBrand®: A Premium Lifestyle Experience Solutions Company. In recent years, he’s returned his focus to his own original pieces, including a recently greenly series of shorts for Adult Swim and a bold publicity stunt in which he allegedly altered the Hollywood sign to read “Hollywoodley”.
