The Comedy Connection tickles ribs with a full calendar of laugh-inducing acts that helped it win the Providence Phoenix’s Best Comedy Club of 2010 award. On December 8, Frank Santos, the R-Rated Hypnotist, swings his pocket watch of hilarity as he induces audience members to squawk like chickens, moo like cows, and surf like teen wolves. Armed with material honed on Comedy Central, B.E.T., and HBO, Big Jay Oakerson storms the stage on December 10. Alternatively, absorb brand-new bon mots on most Sunday nights with showcases of up-and-coming comics, or stay late and snack on unripe apples at the Hardcore Comedy show, which lobs punch lines most Fridays at 10:30 p.m. Pair chuckles with libations that range from domestic and imported beers to classic cocktails such as a Jack and Coke or seasonal nectars including s’mores and caramel-apple martinis.
"Comedy Connection," wrote the Providence Phoenix, "is our Comedy Central." The winner of the paper's "Best Comedy Club" award for five years running, Comedy Connection lives up to its accolades by populating its stage with a slew of up-and-coming and established comedians. Throughout shows, bartenders sling domestic and imported brews while mixing both basic drinks with Jack Daniels and dessert substitutes, such as s'mores and caramel-apple martinis. Aside from regular standup sets, Comedy Connection’s fundraising program helps members of the community host charitable events that benefit non-profit organizations, youth sports teams, and families in need.
