Laughter boosts immunity, eases stress, and can act as a handy signifier of one's level of villainy. Practice guffaws both maniacal and relatively sane with today’s deal, which gets you one ticket to top-notch hilarity at Coconuts Comedy Club for $6 (a $12 value). Your Groupon covers admission to the show of your choice (special events excluded) at Coconuts locations in Safety Harbor or Clearwater Beach.
Learn some new jokes to share with coworkers in the gladiator pit, laugh off a stressful week of gladiating, and don a neat blue poncho so that you can sit in the splash zone of some quick-witted stand-up pros. Coconuts books nationally touring comedians who you've likely spotted standing in front of a faux-brick background on HBO and Showtime comedy specials, Comedy Central, sitcoms, movies, the Late Show with David Letterman, and the Tonight Show with One Bitter, Bitter Host. Along with superstars, Coconuts also presents cut-ups on the precipice of superstardom, as well as local favorites with a preternatural understanding of the Floridian funny bone. Recent acts include Lazlow, Mitchell Walters, and “The Construction Comic” Carmen Ciricillo. Long-time club comedian and Florida native Al April, who has shared open-mike space with megastars such as Jim Carrey and Tim Allen, closes out the January lineup. Check the schedule for more upcoming acts.
The longest-running comedy club in Florida, Coconuts has been in the business of splitting sides since 1986, when the bottom fell out of the coconut-resale market. Because nothing helps the comedy go down easier than a little chemical enhancement, the club has beer, wine, and hookah, and will let you light up during the show. You can buy multiple Groupons as gifts, so call up your friends and share the most entertaining way to force air out of your lungs.
Coconuts’ Clearwater location gets one positive rating on Urbanspoon. Though no more reviews are up for Tampa locations, Club Planet praised a sister Coconuts venue in Gainesville, and a Yahoo! Local reviewer loved the comedy at the St. Petersburg location:
