Although effective, the slap line was quickly replaced by the punch line in most comedy clubs for its ability to induce laughter without inadvertently provoking duels. Enjoy harmless hilarity with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two tickets to The Comedy Showcase (a $30 value, including tax). General-admission shows typically run on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. The Comedy Showcase has a two-drink minimum that is not included with this Groupon; drinks range from $3.75–$8, with both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages available.
An endless parade of joviality and laughter flows from The Comedy Showcase's hallowed stage, which has been graced by such masters of mirth as Bill Engvall and Rodney Carrington. Upcoming performances include James Ladmirault (September 9 and 10), who polished his punch line pistols as one of the original Texas Outlaw Comics and continues to counteract the bright lights of the stage with his trademark brand of dark humor. Slade Ham, a regular on XM radio’s Bob and Tom Show, will bring down the house with his storytelling style on September 16 and 17 before “Hypnobro” Leroy Williams (September 30 and October 1) mesmerizes audiences with a standup routine that draws on his talents as a bona fide stage hypnotist.
Though The Comedy Showcase sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
