What You'll Get
Holding back laughter, like resisting the urge to sneeze, prevents the body from naturally expelling the marbles and Pogs that commonly hide in the human mouth. Let your chuckles and guffaws audibly ring with today's Groupon: for $10, you get six tickets to upcoming comedy shows at the Comedy Café on Brady Street (up to a $60 value). The six tickets can be divided between friends and redeemed across the span of up to three shows; showtimes are scheduled Thursday–Saturday. Each show has a two-drink minimum (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).
The Comedy Café has hosted many chuckle conductors, ranging from Dave Chappelle to Larry the Cable Guy to Tom Clancy. According to the current calendar, upcoming acts include Ryan Hamilton, a recent semi-finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing, and Justin Schlegel, whose website can only be described as a journey through dreams—dreams without limits. Since each ticket comes with a pledge of allegiance to two drinks, feel free to salute anything from frozen rum runners ($6) to cups of Irish coffee ($5) to shots of Goldschlager ($4). To securely nab some sweet seats, Groupon holders must make reservations in advance for their desired dates and times.
For special events or headlining artists with higher ticket prices, Groupon holders will have to pay the difference in cost beyond each ticket's $10 value to attend.
The Comedy Café was ranked third place for Best Live Comedy for the past three years by CityVoters. It received a 3.5-star average from four Citysearchers and a 4.5-star average from eight Yahoo! Locals:

About Milwaukee's Comedy Cafe
For more than two decades, laughs have permeated the space within Milwaukee's Comedy Cafe. On its stage, a rolling list of local and nationally acclaimed comedians—such as Tommy Chong and Bobcat Goldthwait—launch into schticks or go about repairing minor damage to brickwork. Audiences can work on their spit takes thanks to a menu of margaritas, martinis, and snacks such as popcorn.
