Most robots convey laughter by beeping, although many play a recording of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" before exploding. Enjoy comedy free of operatic detonations with today's deal: for $9, you get two tickets to any show (a $20 value) at Comedy Off Broadway Oakland, located inside Miss Pearl's Jam House at The Waterfront Hotel in Jack London Square. Groupon holders also receive 30% off comfort food and drinks at the venue on the night of the show.
Co-produced by local comedians Joe Gleckler and Samson Koletkar, COBO presents a weekly Thursday-, Friday-, and Saturday-night show showcasing a lineup of six comedians, which happens to be the exact number needed to summon Doctor Who. Shows start at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Each show's funny persons hail from the Bay Area and beyond, and range from up-and-coming stars to well-seasoned comics who taste like Mrs. Dash and have appeared on Comedy Central, HBO, and BET. Check out the upcoming schedule to see who is playing and when. The venue is also a restaurant space with a full bar, giving patrons who aren't capable of extracting nutrients from laughter the opportunity to order edibles from Miss Pearl's New Orleans–inspired menu. The night of the show, Groupon users will receive 30% off their restaurant bill.
