When “Show Boat: A Pop-up Comedy Club” hits the stage, the capital city is in for a case of the giggles. Founder Maggie Lenz, a staple in Montpelier’s standup scene, raises the curtain on this sidesplitting collaboration with Lost Nation Theater aimed at showcasing local and regional talent. Boston-based jokester Dan Boulger (pictured) headlines the series’ first installment, doling out the wisecracking wit that has earned him appearances on the “Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” and spots supporting comedy superstars such as Louis CK and Zach Galifianakis. Green Mountain State gagsters Bitsy Biron, Tracy Dolan and Kendall Farrell top off the lineup, while suds served by Charlie-O’s World Famous keep spirits high.
