Both laughter and tears can be cathartic, but only laughter is OK in front of your dog. Laugh until you cry with this GrouponLive deal to Comedy Zone at Madisons on the Corner. For $10, you get two general-admission tickets to any comedy show (a $20 value).
Every weekend, Comedy Zone's emcees whip crowds into excitement for an up-and-coming feature comic and a headliner plucked from the national scene to grace the club's brick-backed stage. On May 18 and 19, road warrior Frankie Paul cozies up to the mic. his lustrous brown locks framing a perpetually incredulous expression as he gestures manically through observations on marriage and the excesses of Sam's Club.
The career of “The E-Man,” Al Ernst (May 25–26), has changed tracks in several whiplash-inducing directions, from training as a seminary student to becoming a pro wrestler to his current two decades on the road doing standup. His travels have given him the ability to sink deep into a cast of fully realized comic characters, including endearingly dense Southerner Emmit Lee Tutwiller Jr. As they watch, hungry audiences can order from Madisons on the Corner’s menu of steaks, burgers, and pasta or sidle up to the full bar for laugh-loosening drinks.
The Comedy Zone at Madison's On the Corner
Every weekend, The Comedy Zone puts on a three-act standup show, each headlined by nationally-touring comics often boasting credits from such programs as Last Comic Standing and Sirius XM Radio. On Thursday nights, the floor opens to a flurry of local up-and-comers, giving nascent comedians the chance to cut their teeth on a live audience and a microphone-shaped chew toy. Its partner restaurant and bar, Madison’s on the Corner, provides the show floor with a menu of drinks and pub grub such as steaks, burgers, and pasta.
