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 for a comedy show at Headliners Comedy Club at The Gold Room. For $15, you get four general-admission tickets (a $60 value). Shows are every Friday at 8:30 p.m.
Kicking off its ninth season, the intimate Gold Room dresses private tables with tablecloths as well as candlelight, which illuminates each giggle and grin drawn by the quips of regularly performing comedians. During two-hour shows, three standup laugh masters take the stage in turn. Tom Hayes (October 5 and November 9) doles out material honed during 27 years as a medical-supply salesman, including a classic routine entitled The Imposter. Karen Morgan (November 2) charms audiences with her Georgia drawl as she plumbs the disparate experiences between her former career as a trial attorney and her tenure as a full-time mom.
Though not included with this Groupon, guests can order stage-side dinner. Spinach-and-artichoke dip teams up with nachos and chicken wings spiced with hot, mild, barbecue, thai, or teriyaki sauce to fuel belly laughs and distract mouths so they don't shout out premature punch lines.
