Comedy has long been used to subvert the established order, shedding light on modern life's pervasive absurdities and fomenting distrust of potentially seltzer-filled boutonnieres. Discover some rollicking truths with today's GrouponLive deal to Comedy Etc. II, located on the second floor of the Ramada Inn in Fairview Heights, Illinois. For $16, you get a comedy outing for two (a $36 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Two general-admission tickets to any regular show (a $30 value). Comedy shows are held weekly on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
- One appetizer (a $6 value)
The masterminds behind Comedy Etc. II coax the nation's foremost touring comics to fill the stage with professional standup shows. Mike Green (February 2–4) shows off observational comedic instincts honed during decades of touring the continent. Midwest-bred Kathleen Dunbar (February 23–25) skewers sacred cows with a caustic wit that earned her an ongoing one-woman show in Las Vegas. Shareable portions of mini tacos, buffalo chicken bites, and toasted ravioli refuel laughing muscles or feed hyenas brought in to support favorite standups.
