What You'll Get
Without laughter, playgrounds would be silent except for the creaking of old swing sets and the trickling of tears into belowground aquifers. Celebrate the sound of mirth with today's GrouponLive deal to see a Brew Ha Ha comedy show at City Steam Brewery Café. Buyers must be 21 or older to attend the show, and seating is general admission. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get two tickets (a $30 value).
- For $30, you get four tickets (a $60 value).
The show takes place at the following times:
- Fridays at 8 p.m.
- Saturdays at 7 p.m.
- Saturdays at 10 p.m.
Brew Ha Ha comedy shows instigate giggle fits among City Steam Brewery Café's weekend crowd with a rotating lineup of up-and-coming comics. Instead of bench-pressing local clowns, Groupon holders can tone their laugh muscles at a performance by Anton Shuford (September 2–3), the 2009 winner of the Philly's Phunniest Person contest. Bubbling with jokes about the joys of parenting, Eric McMahon (September 9–10) has warmed up the stage for Ray Romano and Andrew "Dice" Clay. John Joseph (September 16–17) has appeared on The View, disappeared, and then reappeared as a bat on The Rosie O'Donnell Show.
In addition to consorting with joke-slingers, guests can toast each other with mugs of handcrafted beer and dramatic readings of Robert's Rules of Order (food and drink not included in today's deal). A menu of customizable burgers, pizzas, and omelets quashes belly growls while encouraging patrons to build edible sculptures of their favorite comedians and Supreme Court justices.

About Brew Ha Ha at City Steam Brewery Cafe
At City Steam Brewery Cafe, the owners concoct some of the area’s finest beers, scoring “best of” awards from Hartford magazine and Connecticut Magazine. They also brew potent batches of laughter inside their 200-seat comedy show-room theater. Ensconced in the historic Brown Thomson and Co. building, which was the state’s largest department store in 1877, Brew Ha Ha once was known as the Last Laugh Comedy Club, where fledgling unknowns such as Ray Romano and Kevin James vied for laughs in the smoky rathskeller of a restaurant.
Reborn in 1997 under a new moniker, the standup speakeasy keeps its calendar packed with nationally touring comics and local joke slingers. During shows, guests can toast with mugs of handcrafted beer and make edible sculptures of their favorite comedian using menu’s custom burgers, pizzas, and omelets.
