At least three comedians, including me, have been advertised at one time or another as the "Godfather of Boston Comedy." The real GBC is Sean Morey who got the first stand up club going back in 1978 by being such a phenomenal street performer that Jim Quine, the manager of the Charles Playhouse offered him a night at a real club. Morey packed the room every week, then gave local comics a chance to develop a weeknight show that became The Comedy Connection. Morey got a big spot on the Tonight Show and left the young comedy scene in Boston behind to grow on his planted vines. In fact, when he had to leave for Hollywood on short notice he let me replace him at the Charles and that grew into a one man show I did for a year there. The biggest thrill I ever had in show business by far was the night I sat with a bunch of Boston Comedians in a living room in South Boston and we watched our friend Sean Morey walk out from behind the curtain and do his set on the Tonight Show. This was before cable and it meant a hundred times more than it does today. I will never forget the flush of thrill that went through me when he walked out there, knocked it out of the park, and made us all so very proud to be Boston comedians. Sean Morey is the forgotten unsung hero of the Boston Stand-up comedy scene, the true Godfather of Boston Comedy.
