Standup comedy revolutionized the profession of making people laugh, whereas old-fashioned sit-down comedy situated comics too far from the microphone to be heard. Lend comedians your ear with this GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get $40 toward admission to a comedy show at Comedy Works Downtown or Comedy Works South, located at The Landmark in Greenwood Village. Customers may use this Groupon to purchase multiple tickets but may not apply the value to the clubs' two-drink minimum.
Since 1981, legendary standup comedians of the likes of Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, and Joan Rivers have climbed onto Comedy Works' stages to ignite spirited laughter. The comedy club has also served as a launching pad for the careers of several hometown comedians, including Josh Blue, winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing. Comedy Works' calendar of upcoming shows divvies laughs between its two locations, splitting sides at The Landmark with spot-on celebrity impersonations performed by comedian and actor Kevin Pollak from March 22 to 24 ($20–$25). Before wiping away chuckle-induced tears and uncontrollably slapping strangers' knees, visitors at the downtown location can lap up cocktails from the lobby bar starting 75 minutes before every show.
