In today’s world, people can no longer rely on court jesters to check meals for poison or retell Hamlet as a family comedy. Enjoy the versatility of more contemporary performers with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $30, you get a comedy night for two to see Michael Yo Presents: Hot Mess Comedy at Mad House Comedy Club, located at the top of Horton Plaza, on Wednesday, February 22, at 8 p.m. (a $60 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Two general-admission tickets (up to a $44 value, including ticketing fees)
- Two beers (a $16 value)<p>
Enigmatic comedian, E! celebrity correspondent, and Chelsea Lately regular Michael Yo leads a sextuplet of edgy, mischievous funny folk during Hot Mess Comedy, a celebration of tawdry humor and base instincts. With a keen wit, a penchant for hobnobbing, and the ability to make cows chuckle until they spew milk out of their noses, Michael Yo fills his bottomless chuckle cache with material based on his Hollywood expertise and dating inexpertness. Other haughty and naughty high-octane comics include Michael Quu, who draws laughs and short-circuits pacemakers with candid anecdotes of relationship foibles, along with Boston’s Orlando Baxter, who joked his way to the finals of the New York Comedy Contest. Theo Von, Eric Schwartz, and Chris Millhouse are also scheduled to take the stage. Voice boxes overexerted by loud guffaws can cool down with an ice-cold beer, and a full dinner menu (not included with today’s deal) silences aggravated tummies before they direct heckles toward the stage.
