Medical-school students often intern at comedy clubs, learning the healing art of laughter and stitching up audience members' sides that have split from hearty guffawing. Score a dose of chortle medicine with today's Groupon: for $23, you get two tickets to a summer performance at Catch A Rising Star Comedy Club, located at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino (a $46.40 value).
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 in its spacious showroom. Audience members can snag seats at intimate tables with their closest friends and let laughter experts tickle their funny bones or droll circulatory systems. Performances are held nightly and feature a revolving cast of up-and-comers, as well as already up-and-wents. Soon-to-be-starring guests include Warren Holstein, whose warped world view has contributed to Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update," and "Roundboy" Jimmy Graham, known for sharp observational comedy from which not even the most mundane human experience is safe. Though those under age 18 possess the ability to produce audible expressions of amusement, only people 18 years old and over are permitted to enter and laugh within Catch A Rising Star's premises.
