Early philosophers often engaged in debates concerning the nature of humour, 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 GrouponLive deal for a comedy outing for two at Comedy Bar (up to a $44 total value). Each outing includes the following:
- Two tickets to a weeknight or weekend show (up to a $24 value)
- $20 toward food and drink<p>
The producers at Comedy Bar populate their main stage and cabaret space with local and nationally touring acts that have helped earn accolades such as Best Comedy Club from the readers of NowToronto. On February 4, Toronto native Noam “Moe” Rosen does a whistle stop on the main stage to spin an absurdist yarn about how his nickname became his real name, and CBC veterans Dave Shumka and Graham Clark grace the cabaret stage on March 3 to silently fence with TV antennas. The club also lassos laughs with an assortment of comedic collectives, with Theatresports improv battles on Saturday nights in the cabaret space, and mock-soap-opera sketch The Soaps on Thursday evenings on the main stage.
The servers at Comedy Bar fuel guffaw muscles with a well-stocked menu of pub grub, which houses hearty platters such as the bacon cheeseburger ($10) as well as deliciously leafy plates, from mixed greens tossed in signature grapefruit or miso-ginger vinaigrette ($7) to the pear and cheyre salad ($7.50). Draft beers from local breweries including Mill Street and Sleeman join in on the revelry by giggling when poured ($5.75/pint).
