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. Discover some rollicking truths with this GrouponLive deal to Cozzy’s Comedy Club & Tavern in Newport News. For $20, you get a comedy package for two (a $40 total value) that includes:
- Two tickets for general admission to any upcoming performance (a $20 value)
- $20 worth of American cuisine
Cozzy’s Comedy Club & Tavern has spent more than 20 years hosting up-and-coming comedians and established pros who’ve wrangled laughs from audiences on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, and HBO showcases. On July 20–21, Alycia Cooper teams up with Jesse Thomas to win over crowds. A writer who has penned jokes for Steve Harvey, Russell Simmons, and a roster of others, Cooper has also delivered her own original material on shows such as NBC’s Last Comic Standing, taking aim at the ineptitude of the sports teams from her native city, Washington, D.C. Jesse Thomas dubs himself the “cleanest dirty comic” in existence. His act exposes the uncomfortable realities of relationships, including just how to break up right before Valentine’s Day. The following week (July 27–28), veteran comic Mike Eagan dishes tips on such topics as dealing with the police after they pull you over and reading a woman's nonverbal signals.
Audiences can comfort busted guts with a menu of American dishes that incorporate top-notch ingredients such as Boar's Head meats and Jim Beam bourbon. Blackened ahi-tuna bites with a spicy-ranch dipping sauce quell snack cravings with a ginger-teriyaki char-crust coating ($7.95), whereas Angus burgers are customized to meet an individual's love of cheese or irrational fear of lettuce ($5.95+).
