Although not one of the five traditional senses, a sense of humor is the only thing that allows humans to answer knock-knocks at the door. You're there with this GrouponLive deal to L.A. Comedy Club, located above Cabo Wabo Cantina in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. For $25, you get a comedy-show package for two (a $124 total value). The package includes:
- Two VIP tickets to any comedy show (an $84 value)
- A club membership valid through the end of 2012 (a $40 value), which includes two general-admission tickets to unlimited shows within the membership period, beginning when the VIP tickets are claimed. The $6 tax and processing fee for each ticket is not included.
Local fixtures and nationally touring laugh-getters split sides at L.A. Comedy Club, where an intimate showroom warms audiences with bright stage lights, and panoramic windows display breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip and Bellagio fountains. Shows Wednesday–Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. spotlight performers who have wiped away frowns and workday scowls in television appearances on Comedy Central, Showtime, and HBO.
The schedule’s upcoming lineup of funny people includes the energetic Todd Rexx (December 5–9), AKA T-Rexx, who elicits roars from crowds using sharp observations and spot-on impersonations that slayed on BET’s ComicView and Def Comedy Jam. Tom Segura (December 12–16), seen on Conan and in his own Comedy Central Presents special, riffs on society’s declining intellect and the implications of face tattoos with a calm, assured delivery. A few days later, Shang (December 19–23) jokes and provokes with blistering sociopolitical satire. The club bids adieu to 2012 with the return of Butch Bradley (December 26–30), whose gift for landing heavy-hitting punch lines earned him an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and whose supposed knack for pointing out suspicious passengers garners him no favors from airport security.
VIP ticket holders can skip the long lines that snake along the Strip and snag seats in the front or back rows, the former of which hosts a Splash Zone that lies in the trajectory of involuntary spit-takes. Couples daring enough to drink libations during the set can upgrade to the all-you-can-drink-ticket option at the box office ($25 extra) and sip on cocktails, beer, and Cabo Wabo tequila until the last comic leaves the stage.
