A good belly laugh exercises the abdomen, improves a cloudy mood, and comforts homesick reindeer with familiar Santa-esque sounds. Ease a four-legged friend’s melancholy with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get an outing for two to Flappers Comedy Club, redeemable at its two locations in Burbank or Claremont (up to a $49 value). The outing includes:
- Two tickets (up to a $17 value each)
- One order of chicken wings (a $9 value)
- One piece of chocolate cake to share (a $6 value)<p>
Veteran comics Barbara Holliday and Dave Reinitz helm Flappers, where renowned comedians such as Adam Sandler and Susie Abraham have stopped by to tickle the funny bones of audience members at two area stages. Packed calendars at both locations boast a slate of shows and events in the form of improv performances and Yoo Hoo Friday, where a lineup of local and touring comics try to coax chocolate milk out of giggling noses. Hal Sparks, once named the Funniest Teenager in Chicago by the Chicago Sun-Times, and since then, a frequent entertainer on shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show, brings his lighthearted hilarity to Flappers’ Burbank location on February 12. At Claremont’s humor headquarters, award-winning South African comedian David Newton keeps audiences chortling so they can later record convincing personal laugh tracks for use at office meetings. Pair laughs with saucy wings and a gooey slice of chocolate cake to share.
