A special event is coming to Spotlight and we want you to be a part of it. We’re celebrating the addition of Debbie Joan Miller to the P.S.Y.C.H. 607 family by putting on a show and having … Taury Seward headline it. Why not?
Seward, pending approval from the real boss, will close a couple hours of laughter that features Mike Peters, Debbie Joan Miller and our Utica friends, Brendan McGurk and Cortland Cloos. These comics will have you going all night, so get comfortable.
Admission is $5 at the door and the bartenders will be there to take care of you all night.
Mike Peters, who’s worked around New York and Pennsylvania, is a co-founder of P.S.Y.C.H. 607. Peters specializes in self-deprecating, observational humor. He’s a regular host at Matty B’s and Spotlight in Binghamton, has performed at the Funny Bone in Syracuse, the Greenwich Village Comedy Club in New York City and won the Utica Brews Laugh Contest.
Debbie Joan Miller
Debbie Joan Miller, a Binghamton favorite, is the architect of the Night of Debauchery series, the Debonair Affair and the Comedy Nights at the Grapevine Cafe in Johnson City and opened for Brian Barganier and Zack Hammond. A P.S.Y.C.H. 607 member, Miller isn’t afraid to get dirty, so long as she can find a pair of clean socks at home. Always auditioning to be Bill Nye’s No. 2, Miller’s not afraid to display her inner-dork or her outer-nerd. And if you want to talk about gluten-free alternatives after the show, she’s got you covered there, too.
Brendan McGurk is a standout in the Utica comedy scene. McGurk has worked all around New York and earned titles in the Utica Brews Laugh Contest and won the Utica Comedy Cup in 2016. He recently advanced to the finals of the 2017 Utica Comedy Cup, too!
Cortland Cloos is a heavy hitter from Utica. The original Matty B’s Roast Battle champion after taking out three people in the inaugural event, Cloos uses his strong combination of story-telling and off-the-cuff, observational skills to keep the crowd going. He headlined Matty B’s when his crew came to Binghamton for the Utica Invasion.
Taury Seward, a co-founder of P.S.Y.C.H. 607, won the Who’s Got Next? Rochester tournament and is a regular at Matty B’s. He works steadily around New York and Pennsylvania and enjoys Bob Dylan, spam and amusement parks. He’s a crowd favorite and always helpful at the grocery store.
