For $15, you get two general-admission tickets to a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday comedy show (a $30 value). Shows are usually held at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
Joke Joint Comedy Club packs its schedule with touring comics and local stars, restocking spectators' mirth supplies during several shows every week. Audiences can browse a wide selection of humorists, whose collective resumé includes appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Through deadpan delivery, decade-long standup veteran Mike Merryfield (June 21–23) often muses on the unique qualities of his wife, admiring her physical ability to grow children while poking fun at her ineptness at using modern technology. Comedy Central–featured funnyman Darryl Lenox (July 12–14) cracks jokes on a variety of topics that range from politics to Canadian and American stereotypes, and he charms audiences with the cool demeanor that's helped him cope with visual impairment. Housed in the historic Diamond Jim's Supper Club, the auditorium seats up to 200 chucklers at tables, where they can comfortably rest their elbows and laugh-track cassettes during performances.
