  • Ty Barnett & Ian Harris
    Headlined by a trio of brainy joke crafters, The Evolution of Comedy Tour skewers superstition and politics from the storied stage of Laffs Comedy Caffe. Ian Harris, Jason Resler, and Maurice Northup combine skepticism, rationality, and humor to roast commonly held beliefs in the tradition of no-holds-barred social commentary. T-shirts emblazoned with the tour's logo demonstrate the wearer's logical inclinations and fear of exposing long-regretted flat-Earth chest tattoos. Over its comic-hosting career, spanning back to 1989, the brick-backed stage of Laffs Comedy Caffe has seen the observations of such beloved jokesters as Jerry Seinfeld, Mitch Hedberg, and Robin Williams.

  • Capitol City Theater
    Capitol City Theater draws on deep local talent pools to provide a dynamic display of on-the-spot comedy for the smile-deprived masses. Each show lasts 90 minutes and features a family-friendly revue of improvised performance games. Acts draw on the suggestions of audience members, provided they promise not to suggest Millard Fillmore or seahorse mating rituals, the only two subjects scientifically proven to have no inherent comedic value. Though Capitol City comedy shows are always all-ages, beverages and alcohol-enhancing snacks are available. Today’s Groupon is also good for two adult drinks (up to $8 value); choose from beer, wine, soda, or surprisingly mature bottled water. There is one intermission during the hour-and-a-half show, so you’ll still be able to check stock quotes for your plucky cryogenics start-up.

  • Northern Lights Theatre Pub
    At Northern Lights Theatre Pub, audience members sip riesling and sink forks into chicken breasts as movie families sit down to dinner on the silver screen. Cinema-goers order their meals before sitting down to watch second-run flicks, letting waiters ferry their pulled-pork burritos or Angus burgers right to their seats so they don’t miss a screen couple’s passionate first kiss, tender final embrace, or heartwarming jump from an exploding helicopter. In addition to finger foods, the chefs take their fare up a notch by layering personal pizzas with housemade sauce, sprinkling parmesan cheese and squeezing lemon juice over chicken breasts, and piling pineapple atop their banana splits. Before evening films light up the theaters, Northern Lights’ full-service bar kicks into gear, leading to age restrictions so that moviegoers can freely sip on-tap beers such as Blue Moon and Gilgamesh Mamba or wash down bites with chardonnay and shiraz. In addition to screening blockbuster movies, the theater pub’s three auditoriums occasionally show sports or host live shows such as standup comedy.
