Although not one of the five traditional senses, a sense of humor is the only thing that allows humans to answer knock-knocks at the door. You’re there with this GrouponLive deal for one G-Pass to see the 3rd Annual Big Easy Comedy Festival, starring Mike Epps, Tony Rock, Gary Owen, Joe Torry, and Jay Lamont at UNO Lakefront Arena. For $28, you get one ticket for reserved upper-level seating in sections C, Q, or P on Saturday, May 26, at 8 p.m. (up to a $55.95 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
A star-studded roster of rollicking comedians answers the Big Easy Comedy Festival’s call for ribald laughter with an evening of no-holds-barred standup comedy on Memorial Day weekend. Ace standup comedian, actor, and writer Mike Epps, known to movie buffs as Day-Day Jones from the films Friday and Friday After Next, takes a break from his sellout I'm Still Standing tour to leave a mark on UNO Lakefront’s stage with his signature physicality and cartoonish impressions of his family. Tony Rock, who’s appeared in the blockbuster smash Hitch, steps out from under his brother Chris Rock’s shadow with a raw and gutsy set that fearlessly takes on issues of social injustice and relationships. Hailed as Black America's Favorite White Comic by Ebony magazine and recently appearing in the movie Think Like a Man, grandstanding Gary Owen, swelters with everyman appeal and crackerjack timing in relatable bits on brazenly taboo topics.
Other comics stepping off the small and silver screen include actor and philanthropist Joe Torry, whose quick-fire style of affable, seasoned standup helped him earn a role in the classic film House Party 3 and led him to host Def Comedy Jam. Exhausting lungs from heaving guffaws, comedian, impressionist, and consummate entertainer Jammin' Jay Lamont, seen on BET's ComicView and America's Got Talent, barnstorms with relentless energy in an act that mashes standup, song, and human beatboxing.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
