He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $40, you 10 passes to select Thursday night comedy shows over a six-month period at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse (an $80 value).

Converted from a historic 1930s art-deco theater, Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse is a combination restaurant and theater that features a 75-minute live stand-up show on select Thursdays. Become an usher's nightmare while rolling on the floor and laughing due to the humorous musings of top comics. Take in the sarcasm of comedians who have been featured on shows such as The Tonight Show, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and SNL as they locate funny bones with surgical precision.
The Drafthouse also offers a complete menu, full-service bar, and hazardous chemical laboratory. Every seat in the restaurant is located within the theater and provides a clear view of the stage for maximum chuckles.
Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse has been reviewed by the Washington Post, I Stop Over magazine, and Washingtonian magazine. More than 120 Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars and Insider Pagers award it a three-star average:
- The Arlington Draft House is one of the coolest things in Northern Virginia. Whether its movies, sporting events, comedy I have done it all at the Draft House. The staff are all amazing – Courteny F., Yelp
- One of things that makes The Drafthouse’s [sic] unique is that they often pair movies with a theme, so you might get live stand up comedy paired with a hilarious film one night and a beer or wine tasting with another movie the following night. – Jon Rochetti, I Stop Over magazine
