The 11th annual Newport Summer Comedy Series is on the horizon, with another full slate of acts ready to woof it up under the tent. Many of the bigger names in comedy that paid their dues at places like the Comedy Connection now fill the Newport Yachting Center, including return engagements from Lisa Lampanelli (7/30) and Louis CK (8/6). Aziz Ansari, John Pinette, the outrageously raunchy Bob Saget, and Jeff Dunham round out this year's lineup (with more to be announced). All shows start at 7:30 pm sharp, so plan accordingly (and as if you didn't know, parking is a bitch in Newport on Saturday nights). Or book a room at the Newport Marriott and Hotel Viking, which offer overnight Comedy Series Party Packages.
