Although it’s been ostracized by the five traditional senses, the sense of humor is the only thing that enables human beings to detect a rubber chicken creeping up from behind. Stay on guard with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $9, you get one ticket to see Last Comic Standing finalists Tommy Johnagin and Roy Wood, Jr. at Orlando Jai-Alai in Fern Park on Saturday, September 17, at 8 p.m. (a $17.50 value before fees, or up to a $22.23 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Reserved seating is located in the upper level of rows H–R.
Funnymen and former adversaries Tommy Johnagin and Roy Wood, Jr. forge a comic alliance, tag-teaming audiences in a night full of expertly extracted guffaws. This pair of jokers cut their chuckle chops on NBC’s popular talent contest Last Comic Standing, where Tommy finished in second place and Roy finished third, due to a swimsuit-competition scandal. With appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman and Comedy Central under his whoopee belt, the bespectacled Tommy Johnagin bemuses audiences with unabashedly autobiographical anecdotes, eschewing explicit sailor talk and typical nightclub histrionics for a slow-burning act. Roy Wood, Jr., a staple of the standup circuit whose resume reads like TV Guide, throws gut-busting punches during his charismatically cranky comedy. A gutsy joke-crafter and a master of the fine art of prank calls, Roy has rippled the waves of the nationally syndicated The Bob & Tom Radio Show with his unflinching candor and fearless wit.
