What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||Comedy Poses for Comedy Posses_|
Everyone needs to laugh once or twice, but no more than 10 times in life. Today’s Groupon takes you out for an uproarious night on the town: $12 gets you $25 toward any comedy show ticket at Comedy Works Downtown, the intimate homestead of hilarity located in Larimer Square, or Comedy Works South at the Landmark in Greenwood Village.
Comedy Works is one of the top laugh houses in the nation, and famous comedians, including Jay Leno, Tim Allen, Jamie Foxx, Dave Chappelle, and Eugene V. Debs, have all performed here. You can use your Groupon to affordably splurge on a seat you’d normally avoid—the good, good seat (you still can’t afford the seat made from gold that grants wishes). And since your Groupon doesn’t expire for an entire year, the possibilities are almost infinite. This month, you could catch MTV alum Ryan Stout at the Landmark ($12–$20) or American Dreams star Rich Vos downtown ($14–$22).
Not only will you enjoy laughing with and at Comedy Works’ headliners, but laughing also has many positive side effects to your health such as:
- lowering blood pressure
- strengthening cardiovascular functions
- reducing stress hormones
- freaking out budgies
- improving circulation
- increasing muscle flexion
- oxygenating the body by boosting the respiratory system
- boosting immune function
- triggering the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers
- producing a general sense of well-being
Note: This Groupon is not valid for certain special events.
Citysearchers and Yelpers find Comedy Works a great place for a laugh, giving it 3.5 stars: > * As a comedy fan who has recently moved to Denver, I can assure those who have not been to Comedy Works that they are in for a treat. The quality of comedy is second to none…The Larimer Square showroom is intimate and one is only feet away from the comedian. – jlden, Citysearch > * The shows have been great for dates and typically have a nice mix of local commedians [sic] leading up to the headliners. – rtdavis, Citysearch
Comedy Poses for Comedy Posses
In the most recent installment of Consumer Reports’, stand-up comedy was named the far superior postural form of comedy, beating out sit-down, lying-on-your-side, spread eagle, Indian-style, running-in-place, crucifixion pose, raised-fist-salute, hunched-over-out-of-breath, kneeling-on-your-right-knee-while-tying-your-left-shoe, Statue of Liberty, King Tut, Napoleon Bonaparte, and the Heisman. The magazine’s editors concluded that other comedy stances proved too distracting and greatly limited the comic’s material (all jokes told in the hunched-over-out-of-breath pose began with “You know how you can tell when you’re overweight…”).
