What You'll Get
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. Discover some rollicking truths with this deal to Houston Improv Comedy Club. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a comedy night for two (up to an $86.95 total value) that includes:
- Two general-admission tickets for any regular performance (up to a $35 value, including fees)
One appetizer or dessert (up to a $16.95 value)
- For $79, you get a comedy night for four (up to a $173.90 total value) that includes:
- Four general-admission tickets for any regular performance (up to a $35 value, including fees)
- Two appetizers or desserts (up to a $16.96 value each)<p>
Houston Improv Comedy Club recommends arriving 30–60 minutes before showtime. The club’s usual two-item minimum is covered by the $79 option, but customers with the $40 Groupon need to purchase one additional menu item at redemption. As part of a nationwide network of laugh factories, Houston Improv Comedy Club quenches humor cravings with a packed schedule of standup performers.
Some upcoming comics include Ali Wong (August 2–5), who had a recurring role on the NBC sitcom Are You There, Chelsea?. Variety magazine praised her “crass attitude and dirty mouth,” which Ali best exhibits in her rants on ethnic stereotypes. Usually gussied up in a bow tie and suit pants, the lively Ali Siddiq (August 30–31) wields a gravelly delivery to defend the intellectual content of television programming, which has endowed him with various facts on pretzel consumption. Harland Williams (September 6–7) might be best known for his pompadour and his roles in the Farrelly brothers’ comedies from the ’90s, which included a thirsty state trooper in Dumb and Dumber and an exercise entrepreneur in There’s Something About Mary. In his standup sets, his slow, singsong inflection pitches incredulous discoveries about topics that range from eco-activists to Chewbacca.
Decadent options abound in the Houston Improv Comedy Club’s menu, with shareable snacks such as the Date Plate’s sampler of chicken strips, pickle chips, fries, potato skins, and hot wings splashing through a spectrum of sauces, and cheesecake crowned with strawberry sauce and whipped cream.
