He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $15, you get admission for two and $15 worth of tavern fare at Cozzy's Comedy Club & Tavern in Newport News (a $35 value).
Cozzy's Comedy Club serves up a slew of established comedians and a menu brimming with tasty tavern fare. Having played host to a covey of comics from The Late Show With David Letterman, Comedy Central, Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, HBO, and Showtime, Cozzy's spotlights an ever-changing schedule of witty visitors.
Humor consumption, much like high-stakes dating, should take place while indulging in bar eats, and starters such as the southwestern chicken egg rolls ($7.95) and panko-breaded shrimp jammers ($7.95) add polite levels of crunchiness to opening acts. After warming up, entrees such as the gouda barbecue piled with pork pulled in-house ($7.50) and the portobello-mushroom sandwich ($6.95) facilitate continued guffaws. Soothe your laugh track with a rich slice of New York–style cheesecake topped with raspberry sauce and whipped cream ($4.95).
A safe haven for laughers everywhere, Cozzy's Comedy Club envelops guests in a green, pub-like interior. Seats swarm center stage, which chucked its traditional red-velvet outfit for a Cozzy logo tee, and a corner oasis boasts a pool table and booths.
