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 this GrouponLive deal to Comedy Etc. II, located on the second floor of the Ramada Inn in Fairview Heights, Illinois. For $17, you get two general-admission tickets to see Bill Kirchenbauer, Dale Jones, and Dean Schardan on Wednesday, April 18, at 8 p.m. (a $35 value). The evening will be filmed for the pilot of Schardan's reality show, The Long Walk Home.
Former-federal-offender-turned-funnyman Dean Schardan marches one step forward to his small-screen debut with a hilarious and heartwarming standup set chronicling his road to redemption after a 97-month stint in prison. Though the one-time bank robber keeps audiences rolling in the aisles with a decidedly silly stage presence, his after-show activities include charity work for nonprofit organizations—in this case, the Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House. Last Comic Standing semifinalist Dale Jones joins the evening’s hilarious happenings by flinging zinger after zinger at an auctioneer's pace, and television veteran Bill Kirchenbauer of All in the Family, Growing Pains , Just the Ten of Us, and Night Court fame might draw out guffaws with his spot-on impression of the Titanic.
