At Stanford’s Comedy Club, seasoned and upcoming comedians vie for patrons’ chuckles on the stage that launched the careers of notable funnymen Larry the Cable Guy, Lewis Black, and Lisa Lampanelli. On Wednesday–Sunday evenings, audiences file into the intimate showroom to see comics such as Michael Winslow (July 13–14), known as the Man of 10,000 Sound Effects for his uncanny ability to emulate almost any sound he hears, a talent that catapulted him to fame in the Police Academy series. Director, comedian, and fellow Police Academy star Bobcat Goldthwait (August 24–25) harnesses the gravelly screech that has appeared in blockbuster hits such as Scrooged, causing audience members to cover their mouths as they cackle at his dark brand of standup comedy.
On August 1–4, Laugh magnet T.J. Miller shows off the talent that earned him roles in the movies She’s Out of Your League and Rock of Ages. His self-deprecating routine delves into hilariously personal stories, sometimes spotlighting his occasional overindulgence of alcohol and his many created characters. As fall rolls in, Judy Tenuta’s (September 19–23) irrepressible energy spices up routines delivered with the aid of a variety of unhinged voices, outrageous costumes, and occasional musical accompaniment.
Stanford’s Comedy Club, located in the Legends at Village West, prevails as one of the few comedy theaters to be built from the ground up. Like a Las Vegas showroom, the two-level structure is properly fortified to prevent contagious laughter from exploding into full-blown guffaw pandemics. This deal may be used with special events, which have limited availability.
Stanford & Sons Comedy Club
Originally opening in Westport in 1975, Stanford & Son's Comedy Club gave an early outlet to comedy giants such as Jerry Seinfeld and Roseanne. The club packs in up to 300 audience members for sets from a long list of up-and-comers as well as seasoned performers. The pros fish for chuckles during shows held Wednesday–Sunday; Thursdays also give novices the chance to try their hand at the club's open mic. All the while, drinks flow freely from two sizable bars.
