Both laughter and tears can be cathartic, but only laughter is OK in front of your dog. Laugh until you cry with this GrouponLive deal to Goodnight’s Comedy Club. For $18, you get two general-admission tickets good through December 31, plus two bonus tickets that must be used in July (up to a $90 value). This Groupon is not valid for special events; see Goodnight's homepage for details about special events.
As a staple of the national comedy scene, Goodnight’s counts such superstar standup comedians as Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, and Robin Williams among its guffaw-worthy alumni. The club's upcoming calendar is penciled full of familiar merrymakers, including Last Comic Standing finalist and host of MTV’s Numbnuts Jeff Dye (June 28–July 1). Bonus tickets burn holes in pockets in July as the club welcomes comedy legend Jimmie “JJ” Walker, who coined the immortal catchphrase “Dyn-o-mite!” on the seminal series Good Times (July 12–15), and the gritty everyman comedy of Last Comic Standing finalist and Opie and Anthony Show regular Rich Vos (July 19–21).
Weekend performances fill mouths with laughs during shows at 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, though this Groupon is not valid for special events. Although this Groupon only applies to ticket purchases, the club also fills stomachs with food and drink from one of three bars and restaurants. Make a pit stop at Old Bar, the downstairs grub-and-libation station that features live music, burgers, Tex-Mex fare, and a rotating selection of 40+ beers that giggle when poured from the tap.
Goodnight’s Comedy Club offers a limited-availability dinner-and-show special on some Thursdays and Sundays that may be a better value than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Goodnight's Comedy Club
Tiny combustions and the smell of butter emanate from Goodnight's Comedy Club's vintage popcorn maker as nationally touring standups such as Marc Maron and Ralphie May step up to the mic. With a brick wall behind them and a checkered floor below, these headliners spin their comic yarns as popcorn, Buffalo wings, and cocktails deftly land on tables. In addition to its cabaret menu of apps and drinks, the club is connected to two restaurants. Every month, the mostly private Grille at Goodnight's unveils a new menu of upscale American fare, from prime rib to lobster mac n cheese and pumpkin ravioli that turns into carriage ravioli at midnight. The Old Bar Restaurant and Bar resides underneath Goodnight's, treating diners to more casual fare in the form of burgers and Tex-Mex platters.
