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 Groupon to a comedy show at Morty's Comedy Joint. For $12, you get four general-admission tickets (up to a $60 value). Morty’s offers a free parking lot for all attendees and requires a two-drink minimum.
After years of rounding up professional comedians from across the country, Morty’s Comedy Joint unleashes the jokesters during a variety of uproariously funny shows inside its classy confines. James P. Connolly (July 12–14) regales audiences with sarcastic reflections on such topics as gun ownership and racism, filtered through a straightforward charm and reassuringly mellow baritone. A regular on Chelsea Lately, the affable Joe Matarese (July 26–28) delves into hilariously self-deprecating stories of poor romantic decisions and his intellectual shortcomings. Dan Naturman (August 2–4) launches into tirades, turning his grouchy eye on everything from out-of-date dating-website photos to the difficulty of getting a woman's number in New York.
Guests take in rib-tickling sets in Morty's slick performance space. Eschewing the dowdy aesthetic of many comedy clubs, Morty's features sleek, modern tables and chairs and a wood-paneled bar. A full menu of tasty food quells hunger while drinks and craft beers cool tongues.
