Early philosophers often engaged in debates concerning the nature of humor, posing each other enigmatic questions beginning with "What's the deal with" and ending with "Am I right?" Indulge in classic rhetoric with today’s Groupon to Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy in Boston. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get two tickets to any show (up to a $40 value).
- For $25, you get four tickets to any show (up to an $80 value).
Dick Doherty’s clubs have been detonating laugh dynamite for more than 23 years, with a rotating cast of top national and local comedians. The flagship Boston location’s 75-seat club, nicknamed The Comedy Vault, hosts performers seven nights a week (a $15 value Sunday–Thursday; a $20 value Friday and Saturday), including Boston’s longest-running comedy open mic on Sundays at 9 p.m. With a 12-foot vault door as a backdrop, comics pace the stage, unleash finely honed punchlines, and set free long-imprisoned bank tellers.
Though not included in today's Groupon, a full bar and menu is on hand to replenish calories lost during knee-slaps. Check the schedule to pick a night, then gather a two- or four-person crew for a showdown with gale-force winds of merriment.
