It seems like New York and Boston were just destined to be lifelong rivals when it comes to sports: Jets vs Patriots, Yankees vs Red Sox, Celtics vs Knicks, and so on. Now the two cities are butting heads in comedy. The New York vs. Boston Comedy series continues with Round 5 at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville on Nov. 24. For years, Boston and New York have been trying to prove just who has the better athletes. Now the two fight over who has the funniest people as they meet halfway in Connecticut for those bragging rights. Kelly MacFarland will take the stage for Team Boston as the feature comic, and Greg Vaccariello will represent New York. Both of these charming comedians have impressive resumes including national television appearances. Special guests will include "Mr. Dixie Cup List" Marc Kaye, a Litchfield county native, and "Best of the Midwest" David Drake. The event will be hosted by Mark Riccadonna.
