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 see the Paramount Comedy Series at The Paramount in Huntington. For $15, you get two general-admission tickets for Thursday, March 29, at 8 p.m. (up to a $30 value, including all fees).
The Paramount Comedy Series continues its mission to bust Long Island’s collective gut with a fresh batch of jesters. Named Best Comedian by the Long Island Press for two years running, Rich Walker anchors the evening with musings on his $100 an hour, 30 minutes per week day job. Maria Walsh waxes sarcastic on putting her children to sleep for some peace and quiet, and Erik Rivera unleashes the social commentary that brought down the house on The Tonight Show. Bearing the titles of World's Funniest Accountant and The Prince of One-Liners respectively, Stevie G.B. and Johnny Huff 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.
