Dating Comedy Show Trials of Love arrives at Gloucester Stage for Valentine’s Day


Mike Dorval’s hilariously interactive Trials of Love comes to Gloucester Stage for one night only on Valentine’s Night, Wednesday, February 14 at 7:30 pm. After playing to sold out houses at the Charles Playhouse in Boston — the side-splitting cast will be laughing along with couples on this side of the bridge. According to GSC Managing Director Jeff Zinn, “Trials of Love is truly unique — each new couple and audience brings fresh fodder for comedy. It’s the perfect date night out, ladies’ night, or group outing.”  This interactive problem-solving comedy show, hosted by Mike Dorval, the show’s creator, will run Valentine’s Night, Wednesday February 14th at 7:30pm at Gloucester Stage at 267 E Main St, Gloucester MA 01930. Doors at 6:30 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m.; reserved seating; tickets available online at


Trials of Love, crafted by Dorval, a renowned standup comedian, brings everyday couples into the Love Judge’s (Dorval’s) ‘courtroom’ to have their relationship conflicts worked out through comedic insight and juried audience participation. The couple receives prizes and a lifetime courtroom pass — as well as having their relationship saved — and the partner who emerges victorious is awarded an official proclamation for their triumph. The Love Judge promises there isn’t a couples’ conundrum he can’t resolve — although he does footnote that “isn’t an actual promise.”

The show features fellow comedians from around the East Coast and New York, Carman Lagala, Sam Evans, Emily Ruskowski, Katie McCarthy, and Srilatha Rajamani.

In addition to each night’s featured couple on trial, the Lightning Round of Love gives every member of the audience an opportunity to stump the Love Judge with their relationship dilemma, and the top problem of the night also wins a prize — in addition to their newfound flaw-free relationship!
