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 and Eddie Griffin. On Thursday–Sunday evenings, audiences file into the intimate showroom awaiting funny folks such as Jon Reep—winner of Last Comic Standing season five and comedic focal point of Dodge's Hemi commercials—who dishes out hillbilly humor and stock tips October 20–23. Police Academy's Bob Goldthwait visits November 4–5, and Full House's Uncle Joey, Dave Coulier, visits January 12–14. Visitors munch on chips and dip as the sketch group Broken Lizards—known for writing and acting in the major motion pictures Super Troopers and _Club Dread_—hits the stage February 1–5, and Australian comedian Jim Jeffries provokes mischievous belly laughs March 8–10 with his devious stand-up that pokes touchy subjects such as religion and the weather. Check the full line-up of giggle-makers here.
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; Wednesdays 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.
