Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's GrouponLive deal to see Michael Yo Presents: Hot Mess Comedy at the Hollywood Improv. For $14, you get two general-admission tickets on Thursday, February 23, at 8 p.m. (a $28 value). Doors open at 7 p.m. The Hollywood Improv requires a two-item minimum of food or drinks for each guest, which is not included with this Groupon.
Enigmatic comedian, E! celebrity correspondent, and Chelsea Lately regular Michael Yo leads a sextet of edgy, mischievous funnyfolk in 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 naughty high-octane comics include popular podcaster and Chelsea Lately roundtable regular Ben Gleib, Southern rib-tickler Theo Von, and multimedia comedian and musician Eric Schwartz, known for sneezing out raucous viral videos. Boston’s Orlando Baxter also draws laughs and short-circuits pacemakers with candid anecdotes of relationship foibles, and CNN’s Showbiz Tonight commentator and self-described cougar-in-training Jodi Miller dishes out musings on the opposite sex. Rounding out the Hot Mess roster, Southern belle Fortune Feimster jostles funny bones with her irreverent take on Mason-Dixon Line maxims.
At the Hollywood Improv, comics lure laughs from deep within bellies as they follow 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 seven nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-coming funsters who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers.
