What You'll Get
Laughing uproariously in public is sometimes inappropriate, which is why people feel most comfortable laughing in comedy clubs or into a jar in the bathroom. Let it all out with this GrouponLive deal to Irvine Improv. For $25, you get a comedy-show package (up to a $129.95 total value, including all fees), which includes:
- Two tickets to a comedy show, excluding special events (up to a $40 value). All seating is first come, first served. Comedy shows require a two-item minimum per person (not included in this deal).
- One appetizer (up to a $9.95 value), which does not count toward the two-item minimum
- Four vouchers for tickets to future shows, excluding special events (up to an $80 value)
At Irvine Improv, comics lure laughs from deep within bellies while following in the footsteps of standup legends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have graced the Improv club stages. The club's calendar schedules comedians as often as six nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-coming performers who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers. Upcoming acts include popular indie comic Brian Posehn (November 1–4), whose fuzzy mug and hulky frame are instantly recognizable from countless hit comedies, from the darkly bizarre sketches of Mr. Show to the more mainstream Friends. Behind the mic, the genteel giant releases his pent-up love for pop culture as he espouses on his passion for heavy metal and comic books. Comedian, talk-show host, and best-selling co-author of He’s Just Not That Into You Greg Behrendt (November 29–December 2) brings unbridled energy to the stage to riff on romance and Generation X angst. On December 6–9, former MTV and Def Comedy Jam staple Bill Bellamy, credited for coining the phrase “booty call,” works the crowd like a lion tamer with raunchy observations heard in his latest Showtime special, Crazy Sexy Dirty.
Audience members munch on their choice of a savory appetizer, such as spinach-and-artichoke dip or fried calamari, while sipping a cocktail to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table (drinks not included with this Groupon).
