Known as the “Man of 10,000 Sound Effects,” comedian [Michael Winslow’s](http://michaelwinslow.net) vocal mimicry and sonic shenanigans have made him the Lon Chaney of the larynx. His talent seemingly knows no boundaries and can fool an audience into thinking a jet is roaring overhead as dogs yip and Jimi Hendrix plays a solo, all with the power of his voice. After his first TV appearance on The Gong Show, where he delivered pitch-perfect imitations of famous dogs such as Benji and Led Zeppelin, Winslow found fame as the scene-stealing Larvelle Jones in all seven Police Academy films. Since then, he’s appeared in Spaceballs and shared his chameleonic cords as one of the titular creatures in Gremlins, on Family Guy, Robot Chicken, and even Geico commercials. In his standup show, Winslow melds his sharp wit with his malleable lips as he continues to astound audiences and put Foley studios out of business.
"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.
