Currently celebrating its 20th year, Connxtions Comedy Club frees belly-trapped laughs with the aid of an ever-changing lineup of expert chucklesmiths. With a storied past that includes performances by such legends as Drew Carey, Tim Allen, and the robot that prints jokes on popsicle sticks, the club continues to book shows that feature the country's top tier of wandering comics.
Upcoming shows showcase the laugh-luring skills of Tommy Thompson (August 9–11), whose affable, story-driven sets delve into such small indignities as embarrassing bike accidents or overly touchy tailors. A Michigan police sergeant, Dwayne Gill (August 16–18) hones his comedic act in his off-hours, rousing audiences with hilarious anecdotes about his time as a beat cop. Kevin Bozeman (August 23–25), who has performed at more than 200 colleges, belies his off-kilter absurdity with a laid-back delivery, approaching mundane and controversial subjects from unexpected angles. During shows, guests can dig into hot appetizers, such as cheese bread, chicken wings, pizza, and grinders, or enjoy drinks from the full service bar.
