Every Friday and Saturday evening, audiences at Hampton’s Vaudeville Cafe test the stage’s structural integrity with thunderous guffaws aimed at gut-busting standup comedians. Vaudeville’s schedule of laugh-inducing acts comes to a comedic fever pitch on December 16 and 17, when Bobcat Goldthwait takes a hiatus from his directorial and acting endeavors to tickle funny bones with his trademark high-pitched voice and DNA structure. On October 21 and 22, crowds abrupt into uproarious laughter as Adam White displays his physical style of comedy honed at Chicago’s Improv Olympics and Second City. Also performing on the same dates as Adam White is seasoned comic Stewart Huff, whose knack for drawing contagious crackups earned him a spot on HBO’s Lucky 21 festival. The café’s 200 stadium seats fill up on a first-come, first-served basis, so guests are encouraged to book early to avoid sitting behind someone who’s tall or has an affinity for wearing top hats.
