The story behind HnH Comedy
Danny and Carmen's contacts at Manhattan clubs led them to the formula of putting together a top club headliner with area talent.
Danny Livingston has been performing standup in Manhattan's Comic Strip Live for several years. Carmen came out to support him and decided to give comedy a try. After several successful shows, they looked for an opportunity to bring comedy to the area.
That started last May with a show at the Horse and Hound Inn in South Salem, NY. The response was overwhelming. Danny said, "It was a little too overwhelming. We expected forty people and over eighty showed up." They paused for June and have been putting on monthly shows at the Horse and Hound since July.
Carmen said, "Danny talks to everyone. He was having dinner at the Red Rooster in Ridgefield and struck up a conversation with John Conner of the Sugar Hollow Taproom."
That conversation eventually led to the comedy shows at Sugar Hollow.
Carmen says that the audience is building and that a recent open mic night was a destination for comics who came from as far away as Middletown, NY. Middletown is ninety minutes away. Carmen added that comics will travel for an opportunity to perform in front of an engaged audience and that the lighting and sound systems at Sugar Hollow make it an incredible venue.
