Unlike a tragedy truncheon, a comedy club doesn't hurt and won't slap faces during political protests and soccer riots. Run a gauntlet of guffaws with today’s deal: for $22, you get two tickets to any regular show and $14 worth of drinks at the Comedy Connection in East Providence (a $44 total value).
The Comedy Connection offers a wide array of acts between Thursday and Sunday night. See local stand-up favorites like Derek Furtado, Orlando Baxter, and PJ Thibodeau, or listen as Sopranos actor Frank Santorelli croons the crowd into a state of ecstatic hilarity. Check out the comedy showcases, or stay late and snack on underripe apples at the hardcore comedy show, which takes place most Fridays at 10:30 p.m. Pair your chuckles with $14 worth of drinks, including all domestic ($3) and import ($4) beers, a simple Jack and Coke ($7), or specialty cocktails like the caramel apple martini ($7) as you sit in this intimate, rib-tickling cabaret setting.
"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.
