Comedy has long been used to subvert the established order, shedding light on modern life's pervasive absurdities and fomenting distrust of potentially seltzer-filled boutonnieres. Challenge flower-loving instincts with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two general-admission tickets to The Comedy Showcase (a $30 value, including tax). Shows typically run 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 Sam Demaris (December 9 and 10), whose high-energy comedy act has replenished laugh rations for troops in Iraq and Kuwait and who is the former winner of the Houston’s Funniest Person competition held by the Houston Laff Stop. Twenty-two-year comedy veteran Dean Lewis shares clean, clever comedy that has charmed Ellen DeGeneres, Willie Nelson, and assorted temperance leagues (December 16 and 17), and the Headliners Home for the Holidays show gathers gaggles of hometown funny folk to shame Norman Rockwell with tales of Yuletide woes (December 23, 29, and 30).
Though The Comedy Showcase sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
