Early philosophers often engaged in debates concerning the nature of humor, posing each other enigmatic questions beginning with "What's the deal with" and ending with "Am I right?" Indulge in classic rhetoric with today’s Groupon to Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy in Boston. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get two tickets to any show (up to a $40 value).
- For $25, you get four tickets to any show (up to an $80 value).
Dick Doherty’s clubs have been detonating laugh dynamite for more than 23 years, with a rotating cast of top national and local comedians. The flagship Boston location’s 75-seat club, nicknamed The Comedy Vault, hosts performers seven nights a week (a $15 value Sunday–Thursday; a $20 value Friday and Saturday), including Boston’s longest-running comedy open mic on Sundays at 9 p.m. With a 12-foot vault door as a backdrop, comics pace the stage, unleash finely honed punchlines, and set free long-imprisoned bank tellers.
Though not included in today's Groupon, a full bar and menu is on hand to replenish calories lost during knee-slaps. Check the schedule to pick a night, then gather a two- or four-person crew for a showdown with gale-force winds of merriment.
Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape
Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape has three homes: Below Howl at the Moon in Boston, New England Seafood Restaurant & Lounge in Methuen, and Park Grill & Spirits in Worcester. While the Methuen and Worcester locations bear the name Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape, the Boston location is known as Dick's Beantown Comedy Den. The Boston location recently moved to the Comedy Den from their previous location at the Vault, where they hosted standup comedians, including Dane Cook, who held a weekly gig there for more than a year, and fellow Boston natives Bill Burr and Joe Rogan. Dick Doherty's comedy clubs as a whole continue to detonate laugh dynamite with their rotating casts of national and local comedians.
