Laughter is the spark of the soul, which is why comedians can light up rooms during a blackout but cannot be left unattended at gas stations. Enjoy crackling wit with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two tickets to a comedy show at ACME Comedy Hollywood (a $30 value). A list of dates and times of each show can be found on the venue’s calendar. The shows valid with this Groupon include, but are not limited to, the following:
At ACME Comedy Hollywood, professional funny folk bust through the spotlight of an intimate, 99-seat venue to bust audiences’ guts during improv- and sketch-comedy performances. Often dubbed the “West Coast SNL,” Hollywood Saturday Night broadcasts live as a celebrity host attempts to crack funny bones through new sketches from top comedy writers and ACME performers. Each show also includes a musical guest with the ability to make whoopee cushion sounds with their lips as they play. In Hollywood Dream Role, an improvised movie unfolds onstage as a celebrity guest is forced to act out the part of a lifetime with no script, set, or makeup artist to cover their vestigial tentacles. Audiences can also opt to ogle top comedians in the Hollywood Stands Up show or risk laughing themselves to death during the mystery improv Murder by ACME! As performers create and move the plot along, the audience follows, ready to correctly identify the killer or frame their date at the drop of the final curtain. Before the show begins, Groupon customers can venture over to neighboring Amalfi Restaurant for a $1 discount on beverages, which, unlike a clawfoot tub full of moonshine, can be taken inside the theater.
