In today's world, people can no longer rely on court jesters to check meals for poison or retell Hamlet as a family comedy. Enjoy the versatility of more contemporary performers with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to a comedy show at Joke Joint Comedy Club in Lilydale (up to a $30 value). Shows are usually held at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. This Groupon is only valid for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows and cannot be redeemed until January 1. Thursday shows are regularly $10 per ticket.
Joke Joint Comedy Club packs its schedule with touring comics and local stars, restocking spectators' mirth supplies during several shows every week. Audiences can browse a wide selection of humorists, whose collective resumé includes appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Housed in the historic Diamond Jim's Supper Club, the auditorium seats up to 200 chucklers at tables, where they can comfortably rest their elbows and laugh-track cassettes during performances. Servers drop by routinely to recommend specialty cocktails, beer, or wine and to administer snacks to those weakened by chronic giggling or sprained funny bones (food and drink not included).
