Medical-school students often intern at comedy clubs, learning the healing art of laughter while stitching up audience members' sides that split from hearty guffawing. Score a dose of chortle medicine with today's Groupon: for $18, you get three tickets to Catch A Rising Star Comedy Club, located at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino on North Virginia Street (up to a $53.85 value). The club is closed Mondays.
Known for helping launch the careers of Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, Ray Romano, and others, Catch A Rising Star Comedy Club offers chuckle enthusiasts a plethora of emerging mirth-masters six nights a week in its spacious showroom. Snag a seat at an intimate table with two of your closest friends and let laughter experts tickle your funny bone or droll circulatory system. There is no drink minimum, and seating begins 45 minutes before the show. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets are $15.95–$17.95, depending on the day of attendance.
