Standup comedians typically draw from real life, such as bad relationships or how the zoo is crazy. Life's a riot with this GrouponLive deal to see a live taping of an Erik Myers standup comedy show at Polk Theatre. For $10, you get two tickets for general admission on Friday, September 7, at 8 p.m. (up to a $20 value). Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
When Erik Meyers was crowned Florida’s Funniest Comedian in 2011, the judges may have needed a radar gun to clock his speedy delivery. The lanky livewire operates at a pace that would leave most funnymen winded, and his fast-pitched punch lines, rattled off with a charming twang, leave laughers gasping for air. Since his early years in his native Baltimore, where he received other “funniest person” accolades and played the role of Captain Perfect on the kids' show Pancake Mountain, Erik has stayed busy Johnny Appleseeding the States with his magnetic comic talents. For this special live taping of his latest batch of material, entitled Dopeless Romantic, Erik unwraps his gift of gab in a set loaded with unhinged observations ranging from spoiled love, mankind’s inanities, and pastimes not suitable for DEA agents. The show’s material is intended for mature audiences only.
