Coronavirus hit the comedy industry pretty dang hard. Unlike movies, which are nice to see in person, there is no stand-up comedy without the audience. The laughter of the audience serves as a judge of a good performer and feeds into the interactive nature of a stand-up comedy show. 

Luckily, comedy festivals in Connecticut are back. If you live in Connecticut and find yourself wondering about festivals with comedians, you've come to the right place.

Here are three comedy festivals coming to Connecticut this fall.

1. Andrew Dice Clay At the Ridgefield Playhouse 

Hold on to your hats folks, because the Dice Man is back. Though he might not fly with some people in today's day and age, he's sure to please old-school comedy fans from a time before political correctness. 

For those who don't know, the Ridgefield Playhouse is one of Connecticut's most acclaimed venues. Dice was the first Comedian to ever sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row. 

If you're looking for something to lighten the mood, Dice is performing on September 9th.

2. Comedy Night at City Stream

For something a little more low-key and a lot less expensive, check out the Comedy Night at City Stream. The show will take place indoors in the acclaimed City Stream Brewery, but social distancing will be observed, and all tables will be wiped down. 

Ray Harrington is a rising Comedian who has already performed across the globe. He's also an acclaimed theater director. 

3. Comedy Night at Priam Vineyards

Priam Vineyards is one of the hottest venues for comedy in all of Connecticut. You can catch shows there year-round. 

This show will take place outdoors at the famous, spacious Priam Vineyards, and will feature acclaimed comedian Alingon Mitra. 

If you're a big fan of comedy, this name should sound familiar. Mitra was involved in NBC's Last Comic Standing, winning the popular vote many times and making it all the way to the final.

Even if you're not really into comedy, you might recognize him from his performances on Colbert, Conan, Trevor Noah, and Craig Ferguson. 

Though it's in August, there are many other shows in this series that you can see in the fall, and even in the winter. 

If you're a fan of comedy, you shouldn't settle for less than the best comedy festivals in Connecticut. Check out Dice at the Ridgefield Playhouse if you want some star power or some of the various up-and-coming comedians who feature at various smaller venues around the Connecticut scene.
