Hartford native and comedian Mike Jacobs will take the stage at Playhouse on Park in West Hartford on Aug. 11.
Come on out and laugh for a cause on Thursday, Aug. 11, as Hartford’s own funnyman Mike Jacobs takes the stage at Playhouse on Park. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. with a wine and cheese reception at 6 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Playhouse as it enters its eighth season in operation!
Mike Jacobs’ edgy brand of autobiographical comedy traces its roots to the north end of Hartford, Connecticut where he was voted “funniest kid” in his sixth grade class along with “best legs” – but don’t count on seeing them.
Mike has made his mark in various festivals including the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival, Caroline’s Comedy Final Four, a laugh-off of NYC’s TOP 64 comedians and the “Stand Up 360” NY Comedy Festival. He was also named “Top 40 Comics to Watch Over 40”. Mike is a regular throughout the top clubs in NYC but can be seen anywhere where people like to laugh! He was featured in the prestigious “VENU MAGAZINE” (2012 May-June) where the author wrote: ”I still get the same excitement and enthusiasm when I see a great comedian for the first time“.
Mike is in his fourth year of opening for the legendary Richard Lewis (Curb Your Enthusiasm); from Zanies in Chicago to Cobbs Comedy in San Francisco the shows have been the same – SOLD OUT! Mr. Lewis recently said of Mike, ”He is the greatest comic I have shared a stage with in 45 years.“
