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 standup 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.
