Like puppies, stand-up comics thrive on attention, entertain others with their energy, and draw smiles when they imitate people. Enjoy comedic companionship with today's Groupon: for $32, you get 10 pairs of tickets to Cap City Comedy Club (an $87.50 value). These tickets are valid for touring headliners Wednesday–Friday, as well as shows on Saturdays at 10:30 p.m.
Just past its quarter-life crisis, Cap City Comedy Club ropes in scruffy local talent and harlequins of televised humor to fill a calendar of standout stand-up. Upcoming crackpots include frequent television commentator Hal Sparks; young funnysmith Shane Mauss, who has performed several times on Conan and almost all the time behind a microphone; and the witty Amy Schumer, spitting material from her new CD Cutting. Comedians interact with the audience during routines and administer flu vaccinations as necessary.
Visitors must purchase two food or beverage items during the show, so Cap City serves up a menu of creative bar food including egg rolls with chicken, red chili, and black beans ($8.95) and the Tejas burger ($8.95), which sports two grilled patties to eat or dab away tears during gut-busting sets.
