A cigar fan and a regular at the Tobacco Road Cigar Lounge in Sacramento, comedian Michael O’Connell was having trouble getting some of his fellow loungers to leave the comfort and the smoke-friendliness of the establishment and come out to see his comedy shows at the local clubs. One day it occurred to him – why not bring the comedy right to the lounge?
Smokin’ & Jokin’, created and hosted by O’Connell, is a cigar lounge comedy show featuring northern Calilfornia’s finest stand-up comics. Presented by O’Connell’s production company – Ramp Up Productions – and General Cigar Company (creator of such famed brands as CAO, Punch, Macanudo, Partagas and Hoyo de Monterrey), it provides a unique and relaxed atmosphere, allowing cigar fans to light up their favorite stogies (or, for first timers, to find a favorite) and enjoy an evening of laughs among fine company.
Watch here for dates for upcoming Smokin’ & Jokin’ shows, and if you’re local – and like both a good smoke and a good joke – consider joining the fun. For more information, visit the Smokin’ & Jokin’ Facebook page.
