Microphones are like stiff drinks—both make voices louder, jokes easier to understand, and arguments into spectator sports. Summon spirited guffaws with today’s GrouponLive deal to Goodnight’s Comedy Club in Raleigh. Choose between the following options:
- For $18, you get two tickets to an upcoming comedy show (up to a $44 value).
- For $30, you get four tickets to an upcoming comedy show (up to an $88 value).
As a staple of the national comedy scene, Goodnight’s counts such superstar standup comedians as Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, and Robin Williams among its guffaw-worthy alumni. Goodnight’s upcoming calendar is penciled full of merrymakers, such as Scott Thompson and Kevin McDonald from sketch show Kids in the Hall, Chris Franjola and Dov Davidoff from Chelsea Lately, Todd Yohn from The Bob & Tom Show, and time-traveling jesters from the Middle Ages. Weekend performances fill mouths with laughs during shows at 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Although today's Groupon only applies to ticket purchases, the club also fills stomachs with food and drink from one of three bars and restaurants. Make a pit stop at Old Bar, the downstairs grub-and-libation station that features live music, burgers, Tex-Mex fare, and a rotating selection of 40+ beers that giggle when poured into glasses.
Goodnight's Comedy Club
Tiny combustions and the smell of butter emanate from Goodnight's Comedy Club's vintage popcorn maker as nationally touring standups such as Marc Maron and Ralphie May step up to the mic. With a brick wall behind them and a checkered floor below, these headliners spin their comic yarns as popcorn, Buffalo wings, and cocktails deftly land on tables. In addition to its cabaret menu of apps and drinks, the club is connected to two restaurants. Every month, the mostly private Grille at Goodnight's unveils a new menu of upscale American fare, from prime rib to lobster mac n cheese and pumpkin ravioli that turns into carriage ravioli at midnight. The Old Bar Restaurant and Bar resides underneath Goodnight's, treating diners to more casual fare in the form of burgers and Tex-Mex platters.
