Laughing uproariously in public is sometimes inappropriate, which is why people feel most comfortable laughing in comedy clubs or into a jar in the bathroom. Let it all out with this GrouponLive deal to see Adam Carolla at the Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. For $25, you get one G-Pass for reserved main-floor or balcony seating on Friday, October 12, at 8 p.m. (up to a $49 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Irascible comedian Adam Carolla pulls no punches as he singes Rialto Square Theatre in an evening of fiery standup. From foiling Dr. Drew on Loveline, antagonizing livers on The Man Show, and brazenly tricycling on Dancing with the Stars, Adam’s affable mug is instantly familiar to television viewers. Now host of The Adam Carolla Show, which made the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Downloaded Podcast in the World, his nasal voice and gift of guff take antic, in-the-flesh form in a standup act that swings between crafty storytelling and gleefully unhinged rants. Adam arrives at the stage fresh off the success of his best selling memoir, Not Taco Bell Material, shooting from the hip as he riffs about his carpentry days and his long history of hovels in between raucous multi-media interludes. His ire of modern times and penchant for sentimentalizing America’s golden years makes the Rialto Square Theatre, a former vaudeville palace residing on Route 66, an ideal venue to sustain his rage.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
What some people are buzzing about:
“Wonderful historic venue.”
