The American Comedy Co. requires a two-item minimum per person, which is not covered by this Groupon.
The American Comedy Co. corrals nationally renowned comics at its 200-seat, locally owned Gaslamp Quarter club. In April, easygoing funnymen Kevin Shea and Jasper Redd bring their distinct voices and experience on Comedy Central's Premium Blend together. Shea's laid-back persona underscores quips about the stereotypes and realities of his Pennsylvania upbringing, and Jasper Redd traces America's cultural obsession with thinness all the way to technology in the form of the plasma TV.
Mid-May ushers in Harland Williams, a screen regular known for outlandish roles, including the hitchhiker in There's Something About Mary, and for rapid-fire accent changes throughout his high-energy sets. Over Memorial Day weekend, Kyle Kinane graces the stage with his signature dark, self-deprecating humor, and comedy-festival regular and frequent television and radio performer Tom Segura waxes philosophical about the plight of unintelligent people.
Finally, Kris Tinkle and Rob F. Martinez dance across early June. Tinkle harnesses his experiences touring with the USO to fully command a crowd, articulating his points with jittery hand gestures and back-and-forth swagger. A veteran of the California comedy-club scene, where he's shared stages with Robin Williams and Dave Chappelle, Martinez cracks up audiences with his take on the various smells of Los Angeles, from the less-than-savory aromas of downtown to the rich-person ocean smells near the coast.
