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 a comedy showcase at the Denver Improv. For $20, you get a comedy-show package (up to a $52.99 total value) that includes:
- Two tickets to a comedy show, not including special events (up to a $40 value). All seating is first come, first served. Comedy shows require a two-drink minimum per person (not included in this deal).
- One appetizer or sandwich (up to a $12.99 value).
As part of the revered chain of Improv comedy clubs––where greats such as Jay Leno, Robin Williams, and Jerry Seinfeld honed their chops early in their careers––Denver Improv continues its namesake’s storied legacy with performances by big-name comedians and up-and-comers. Actor Steve Byrne (October 28), star of the TBS series Sullivan and Son, takes a break from entertaining the troops on USO tours and appearing in films such as Couples Retreat to ignite belly laughs with his physical standup comedy and witticisms inspired by his Korean and Irish heritage. Known for his bewildering stamina, as seen in the documentary 13 or Bust, where he attempted 13 Manhattan shows in one night, Byrne barely takes a breath during his barrage of punch lines.
Denver Improv’s calendar of upcoming jokesters also includes Def Comedy Jam and Comic View veteran Shang Forbes (November 1–4), who sprays his cunningly satirical aerosol into the sociopolitical climate. Chris Rock’s little brother, Tony Rock (November 29–December 2), also contributes to the assault on funny bones with bits that riff on hot-button topics such as racism and bedroom antics. As laughter loosens inhibitions, the club’s menu loosens belts with an array of delicious options, such as the Dip Trio appetizer with spinach artichoke, black bean, and queso dips, and the hearty blue-cheese-and-bacon burger.
