Both laughter and tears can be cathartic, but only laughter is OK in front of your dog. Laugh until you cry with this GrouponLive deal. For $18, you get a comedy night for two to a Friday-night performance or for four to a Sunday- or Thursday-night performance (up to a $70 value) at Sacramento Punch Line. Thursday and Friday shows usually start at 8 p.m., with an additional 10 p.m. performance Friday, and Sunday shows usually start at 7 p.m. Doors open one hour before showtime. Tickets are not valid for any show with a price of more than $17.50. A two-drink minimum applies to all shows.
The schedule of performers showcases Ian Edwards (November 1–4), whose giggle-inducing analysis of topics such as romance and recently released prisoners have landed him spots on Comedy Central and HBO stages as well as writing positions for Saturday Night Live and Cartoon Network’s The Boondocks. Also set to perform is Felipe Esparza (November 8–11), a wild-haired comic with an often-imitated catch phrase who offers amusing advice on how to settle an automobile accident without insurance.
