The Comedy Connection on Custom House Wharf is accessed by walking on Commercial Street. The venue itself is relatively small. It features some very humorous guests, some known better than others. Trying to find a place to park nearby is a challenge.

tWe went to a show. we saw 3 comedians. They were all really funny......The waitstaff were pleasant and the food was good. Glad that they are open again for the season. There is nothing like going out and getting a good laugh in.......We have been to a few shows and have always enjoyed our time there. I would highly recommend... More

Overall this was a fine place to spend an evening out. The price was fair, they had an adequately stocked bar, and the comedians were pretty good. Nothing great, mind, but good.

My husband and I enjoyed a couple hours at the comedy connection. It was a fun night out. Saw 3 comedians...two opening acts. Good crowd present. Able to buy tickets at the door. $15 each

The headliner said he hadn't been invited back in eight years. I wasn't surprised. The openers were much funnier. It would be nice if they started on time.

We selected the comedy connection as a final evening activity to celebrate my fiances birthday. We had been patrons before, despite the less than stellar accommodations and back alley location. As we all shoveled into the check-in/ bar cattle entrance, which had no lines for who would be waited on next (expect cutting at both the bar and ticket counter),... More

Went there with a number of people as part of birthday festivities for a friend. It’s rundown and gross; definitely needs a make-over. The room where the show is held is way too cramped. There were too many tables and it felt like people were practically sitting on top of one another. Ridiculously slow drink service and god awful vodka... More

This is a great place to go to have a lot of laughs! It's not a huge place so make sure you get there early or make a reservation on the weekends in the summer time.Service was good, beers were cold and the comedians were "wicked funny"!
