Kingsmill Resort’s annual comedy weekend returns with a comedian lineup sure to leave you in stitches Jan. 26-27.

With master of ceremonies Brian Hicks — one of Chicago’s premier comedians, at the helm — the two-day event features six highly regarded comedians.

Dean Napolitano has numerous TV credits to his name and has opened for Joan Rivers and Don Rickles. Napolitano will be joined by Erin Jackson, a semifinalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” who served as co-host on three seasons of the talk series “Exhale” on Jan. 26. Dale Jones, a Sirius XM’s “Blue Collar Channel” standby, rounds out the night’s performers, according to the Kingsmill Resort’s website.

The one-two punch of wintertime comedy continues the following night with Jon Fisch, who has made appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Fisch, who focuses on the quirks of city living, also has been featured in Maxim Magazine and hosted the podcast “In the Tank.” Fisch will share the stage with Michael Palascak, a top-5 finisher on the last season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” as well as two-time San Francisco Comedy Festival winner Don Friesen, according to the resort’s website.

Shows run 8-10:15 p.m. and doors open at 7:30 both nights. Event packages include accommodations, tickets to attend shows both nights, full breakfast at Elements 1010 daily and complimentary parking and Wi-Fi. Packages start at $129 per person based on double occupancy. The event will be held at 1010 Kingsmill Road, Williamsburg, VA 23185.
