Steve Martin famously stated, “comedy is not pretty,” which explains his current obsession with performing standup routines while simultaneously sweeping chimneys. Savor unapologetically nonphotogenic hilarity with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $22, you get two general-admission tickets to see Josh Blue at the First Avenue Club in Iowa City on Thursday, September 22, at 8 p.m. (a $44 value before fees, or up to a $47 value online including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.

Comedian Josh Blue drenches audiences in delightful self-deprecation, breaking funny bones with his disquieting brand of gutsy, personal humor. Josh first burst into the public eye on the fourth season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, where his victory shattered taboos about disabilities. A naturally magnetic and self-effacing force capable of disarming hecklers with a single wince, Josh’s tenacious wit and indomitable spirit have granted him comedy festival tenure, hours of television exposure, and countless second helpings of chicken-nugget samples at the supermarket. Inspiring, unflappable, and wholly unpredictable, Josh Blue ensures each live performance is a different beast, capable of jostling hysterical audiences out of their seats and secret heating-duct hiding spots.

First Avenue Club

The same venue that hosts weddings and upscale dinners also welcomes established comedians and rock bands, making First Avenue Club a go-to destination for all manner of events. Inside, a full-service bar overflows with 12 draft beers, 40 bottled beers, and a wealth of mixed drinks. Further behind the scenes, the kitchen fires up hearty entrees such as roast pork loin and baked cod.
