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 this GrouponLive deal to MinneHAHA Comedy Club, located in the lower level of Dangerfield's Restaurant in Shakopee. For $18, you get a comedy night for two (up to a $35.99 total value), which includes:
- Two general-admission tickets to any Friday or Saturday early show starting June 1 (a $26 value). Most shows begin at 8:30 p.m.
- One appetizer from Dangerfield's (up to a $9.99 value)
MinneHAHA gives Minneapolis up-close access to top local and nationally touring comedians, many of whom have appeared on shows such as The King of Queens, Showtime, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Last Comic Standing. The general comedic tone is classy and—unlike most nursing-home open mics—refreshingly free of lazy vulgarity.
On June 1 and 2, audiences can catch Darlene Westgor, winner of the first season of Nick at Nite's Search for the Funniest Mom in America. Darlene slays with the details of domestic life every mom knows too well, from helping with homework, watching boring Little League games, and prowling the subtle but lingering creepiness of garage sales.
The following week, Craig Allen delivers seemingly benign observations that mutate into absurd jokes and stories dripping with sarcasm. His debut on live national radio came on The Bob & Tom Show, during which Tom remarked, "After two jokes, I can tell you're a really sick man." While they laugh, pairs can dig into unique takes on traditional pub fare, from Maker's Mark–glazed wings to coconut-breaded shrimp to a foot-high tower of beer-battered onion rings.
