Standup comedy shows foster a connection with a favorite performer that's hard to find in other productions, whose supporting actors tend to get in the way of sustaining eye contact for longer than 20 minutes. Let tears of laughter fill wide eyes with this GrouponLive deal to see a comedy show at MGM Grand At Foxwoods Theater in Mashantucket. Choose between the following options:
- For $52, you get two category 2 or 3 tickets to see Aziz Ansari on Saturday, May 19, at 9 p.m. (up to a $105 value).
- For $58, you get two category 2 or 3 tickets to see Jim Gaffigan on Saturday, June 2, at 8 p.m. (up to a $117 value).
Tom Haverford would envy Aziz Ansari. The scheming government clerk on NBC's Parks and Recreation dreams of sharing bottle service with high rollers even as he shops the boys' department at Brooks Brothers; meanwhile, the comic who plays him has parlayed fame from standup stages and MTV sketch show Human Giant into real-life friendships with Kanye West and Jay-Z. Dressed to the nines for his 2012 Buried Alive tour, the man named one of Rolling Stone's "eight rising stars guaranteed to keep you laughing for years" bounces across the stage as he works through an hour of brand-new material.
A constant late-night presence, Jim Gaffigan embarks on The America tour with what ABC News' Allan Raible calls "master-level observational comedy." In an unhurried baritone peppered with self-deprecating comments from his breathy, high-pitched alternate personality, Gaffigan discourses on his strained relationship with food and his position as both an observer and participant in American laziness.
