FAIRFIELD — The proceeds from a comedy show on Thursday will benefit the Fairfield police K-9 unit.
The show, “Jokes for Jake,” is scheduled to run form 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Seagrape Cafe, 1144 Reef Road in Fairfield.
Since the police department’s K-9 unit is supported solely by donations, the money raised by the stand-up comedy show will go toward Jake, the town’s newest four-legged officer. Police said K-9 Jake needs food, his handler’s vehicle requires modifications and the duo needs ongoing training.
Comics featured during the show will be Kim Berns, Billy Connors, Matt Orefice, Eileen Fickes and Steve Muller — “comics not seen on HBO, Comedy Central, Netflix and Hulu,” police said.
Admission to the show is free, but donations will be accepted.
