"We are not stand-up comedians. Our show is not a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience – we get suggestions from them to begin each scene we perform, and in certain instances, bring them on stage with us to add to our performance. It's less a ‘show’ and more a party.... This group of actors brings me right back to how I started out in comedy," explains Belushi. Jim Belushi is widely recognized for his starring role on the ABC hit comedy According to Jim, on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director.

For tickets ($65), call the box office at 203-438-5795, or visit ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.
