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 at L.A. Comedy Club, located above Cabo Wabo Cantina in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. For $25, you get a comedy-show package for two (a $184 total value). The package includes the following:
Two VIP tickets to any comedy show (an $84 value).
A 90-day club membership (a $100 value), which includes two general-admission tickets to unlimited shows within the membership period, beginning when the VIP tickets are claimed. The $6 tax and processing fee for each ticket is not included.
Local fixtures and nationally touring laugh-getters split sides at L.A. Comedy Club, where an intimate showroom warms audiences with bright stage lights, and panoramic windows display breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip and Bellagio fountains. Shows Thursday–Saturday night spotlight performers who have wiped away frowns and workday scowls in television appearances on Comedy Central, Showtime, and HBO. Starting in September, shows will be running Wednesday–Sunday. The schedule’s upcoming lineup of funny people includes Butch Bradley (August 30–September 2), whose gift for landing heavy-hitting punch lines earned him an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and whose supposed knack for pointing out suspicious passengers garners him no favors from airport security. Pacific Rim Comedy star Paul Ogata (September 20–23) shares the voice he honed as a morning-radio personality in Honolulu as he explores the pitfalls of trying to accentuate one’s height by wearing vertical stripes.
VIP ticketholders can skip the long lines that snake along the Strip and snag seats in the front or back rows, the former of which hosts a Splash Zone that lies in the trajectory of involuntary spit-takes. Couples daring enough to drink libations during the set can upgrade to the all-you-can-drink-ticket option at the box office ($25 extra) and sip on cocktails, beer, and Cabo Wabo tequila until the last comic leaves the stage.
