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 to see the Paramount Comedy Series at The Paramount in Huntington. For $15, you get two general-admission tickets on Saturday, February 18, at 8 p.m. (up to a $38 value, including all fees).
The Paramount Comedy Series continues its mission to bust Long Island’s collective gut with a fresh batch of jesters. Frankie Pace, whose resumé includes appearances on Saturday Night Live, A&E, and HBO, anchors the evening with instantly recognizable pop-culture impressions and less recognizable horticultural impressions, and Vanessa Hollingshead extracts precise character impersonations and biting social observations from her own unorthodox past. NYC regulars Scott Schendlinger, J. Jay Boyd, and Chris DiStefano round out the lineup of laugh wranglers, and Paul Anthony draws on his experience as host of the Long Island Comedy Festival to present the giggle gala. Exposed-brick walls line The Paramount's cavernous theater, where a laid-back concert vibe lets guests visit a bar on the main floor without missing a punch line or chance to request a favorite riddle.
