Although not one of the five traditional senses, a sense of humor is the only thing that allows humans to answer knock-knocks at the door. You’re there with this GrouponLive deal: for $24, you get a comedy-show package at Irvine Improv (up to a $159.95 total value). The package includes the following:
- Two tickets to a comedy show, not including special events (up to a $50 value). All seating is first come, first served. Comedy shows require a two-item minimum per person (not included in this deal).
- One appetizer (up to a $9.95 value), which does not count toward the two-item minimum
- Four vouchers for tickets to future shows, not including special events (up to a $100 value)
At Irvine Improv, comics lure laughs from deep within bellies while following in the footsteps of standup legends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have graced the Improv club stages. The club's calendar schedules comedians as often as six nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-coming funsters who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers. Upcoming acts include Sebastian Maniscalco, whose sarcastic skewing of modern manners was recently showcased in his Showtime special What’s Wrong With People (April 6–7), and mischievous Sirius Satellite Radio staple Mitch Fatel, whose boyish delivery disguises his devilish subject matter (April 12–14). Audience members munch on their choice of a savory appetizer, such as spinach-and-artichoke dip or fried calamari, while sipping a cocktail to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table (drinks not included with this Groupon).
