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. Challenge flower-loving instincts with today's GrouponLive deal to HaHa Comedy Club in North Hollywood. For $11, you get a comedy package for two (up to a $55.95 total value) that includes the following:
- Two general-admission tickets to any show listed on HaHa’s calendar (up to a $40 value, including all fees)
- An American platter appetizer (a $15.95 value)
HaHa Comedy Club regales audiences with a constantly rotating cast of chucklemeisters from around the country stopping in seven days a week. Next Comic Standing (Mondays at 8:30 p.m.) pits funny folks against one another in joke-slinging contests, with the audience voting on their favorite act and who has the most slippery banana peel. Hosted by local comedian Janet Rousseau, Wildin’ Out Wednesdays (Wednesdays at 8 p.m.) feature surprise celebrity guest stars each week. HaHa All Star Comedy (Fridays at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m.) combines such headlining comedians as Jeff Garcia, Chris Tucker, and Chris D'Elia with appearances from such humor royalty as Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler.
Between giggles, patrons can dig into their American platters, which are piled high with veggies and dip, chicken tenders, poppers, fries, onion, rings, mozzarella sticks, and chicken rolls, then christened with the tear of a bald eagle who just watched Independence Day.
