Laughter is the world’s second-best medicine, only slightly less effective than a potion brewed from a lock of hyena hair and a vial of Eddie Murphy’s tears. Get a dose of the good stuff with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $26, you get two tickets to see Christian Finnegan, plus one appetizer, at Palm Beach Improv (a $52.65 value, including tax and all fees), located at the City Palace in West Palm Beach. Palm Beach Improv has a two-drink minimum, which, along with parking, is not included with this Groupon. Choose between the following showtimes:
• Friday, August 26, at 8 p.m. Patrons must be 21 or older to attend this event.
• Friday, August 26, at 10:30 p.m. Patrons must be 18 or older to attend this event.
The punch lines of such prominent comedians as Tracy Morgan, Daniel Tosh, and Lisa Lampanelli still echo across the stage at Palm Beach Improv, where tourists and regulars converge to drink and guffaw. Taking time off from his antics on the hit TBS sitcom Are We There Yet?, Christian Finnegan stops by the club to terrify local architects with his well-earned reputation for bringing down the house. Finnegan slays audiences with whip-like delivery and sharp insights into pop culture’s absurdities, continuing in the vein of his star-making role on VH1’s Best Week Ever and his 2009 Comedy Central Special Au Contraire!
Between fits of laughter, audience members can munch on a shared appetizer from a menu designed to appease over-chortled bellies. Asian-inspired Firecracker wings ($8.95) set off delicious explosions of chicken and spice, and hawaiian shrimp tossed in Malibu coconut batter ($9.95) add sweetness to the on-stage zingers.
