Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon: for $27, you get one ticket to any show and two drinks at the Broadway Comedy Club, located on West 53rd Street (up to a $56 value). Audience members must be at least 17 years old or accompanied by someone 21 or older.
For more than three decades, Broadway Comedy Club has facilitated human laughter with the help of Rosie O'Donnell, Jim Gaffigan, Tracy Morgan, Charlton Heston, and more. Shows cater to both family-friendly audiences and laugh seekers in search of uncensored comedic fare. All of the giggle sessions entertain for 90 minutes to two hours, and the upcoming schedule features a variety of chuckle peddlers.
The Television Headliner Showcase (a $20 value) helps humans sculpt their side muscles while seated on Friday and Saturday nights, shining a spotlight on as-seen-on-TV comics such as Ruperto Vanderpool from Bad Boys of Comedy, Kyle Grooms of Last Comic Standing, Feather Duster Tickler from infomercials that play while you're sleeping, and Chappelle's Show alum Marc Theobald.
To further lubricate attendees' laugh engines, two drinks ($8+) are included with each ticket, with bar selections ranging from nonalcoholic sips for underage merriment seekers to top-shelf specialty drinks for discerning spit-take palates.
Citysearchers give the Broadway Comedy Club a four-star average:
- Had an amazing time. AMAZING! The comedians made the night amazing. – Billy Roberts
- I get skeptical when clubs tell me "TV HEADLINERS" but when I sat down and watched I actually saw these comedians on TV, from VH1, Comedy Central and HBO. Alot [sic] of great jokes. I would recommend it. – DangerousLaugh
