[brid video="115919" player="7965" title="CC James P. Connolly"]Marine veteran James P. Connolly (Sirius/XM Radio, Comics Unleashed) hosted the 6th Annual Veteran's Day Benefit Comedy Show "Cocktails & Camouflage," at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank, California in early November.
All funds raised were donated to Veterans in Film & Television (VFT), a non-profit networking organization that unites current and former members of the military working in film and television and offers the entertainment industry the opportunity to connect with and hire veterans.
In this video, we get a few of Connolly's jokes, along with the story of how he went from Harvard to the Marine Corps ... to standup comedy.
