Standup comedians typically draw from real life, such as bad relationships or how the zoo is crazy. Life's a riot with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two tickets to a Lights, Comedy, Laughs! standup-comedy show at Northern Lights Cinema Grill in Nampa (a $20 value). Choose from the following options:
For either option, choose between the 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows. Doors open 30 minutes before each show.
Northern Lights Cinema Grill melds a movie theater, restaurant, and live-entertainment venue into a single feast for the stomach, eyes, and ears. On September 7, Tommy Savitt takes his time delivering sly, old-school battle-of-the-sexes quips in a raspy Brooklyn accent, then undercuts his slickster routine with an edge of self-deprecation. His fellow act, mustachioed funny man and prolific comedy writer Mel Kohl, has long been comfortable commanding even the toughest crowds—he trained as a lawyer, though he doesn’t currently practice. Armed with a genial expression and a towering pompadour, he ranges far and wide in an act that draws humor even out of such typically dry subjects as real estate and the stock market.
October 5 beckons to the stage Marc Yaffee, who has spanned the globe performing a routine based mostly on his own multicultural heritage. The thematically allied and continually misidentified Adam Stone joins him with a brand of effervescent humor that explores his background as a native Hawaiian who “moved to the United States to become Mexican, apparently.”
Northern Lights Cinema Grill
As a lineup of second-run movies splashes upon the two screens of Northern Lights Cinema Grill, waiters deliver a diverse menu of pizzas, burgers, and salads to audience members comfortably lounging around tables. Customers arrive at the theater 30 minutes before the beginning of their chosen show to purchase drinks and place food orders before the lights dim and the night wolves come out. Waiters deliver orders during the show, and can delay the delivery of desserts or other food items at customers’ request. The theater’s matinee showings welcome guests of all ages, while shows after 6:15 p.m. are for patrons 21 and older due to their wine and beer service and dress code of clothes from 1995 or earlier.
