Metaphors for laughter are often surprisingly violent, from busting a gut to splitting your sides to tumbling down the jagged face of Joke Mountain. Break a funny bone with this GrouponLive deal to Rhonda Shear’s Comedy PJ Party at The Mahaffey in Saint Petersburg. For $21, you get one ticket for orchestra seating on Saturday, February 16 (up to $43.05 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. The event’s comedy show begins at 9 p.m.
Benefiting the Mahaffey Theater Foundation, Rhonda Shear’s Comedy PJ Party treats guests to a night of dishabille fun. Dressed comfortably in their PJs, guests can arrive at 7 p.m. to meander through booths of more than 20 vendors of accessories, gifts, and clothes. Later, a runway show in the main theater shows off high-fashion couture from local designers. At 9 p.m., the lights dim and Rhonda takes the stage, launching into the main-event standup show featuring a diverse crew of rib ticklers.

The Mahaffey Theater
Just minutes from downtown's bustling shops and overlooking the glassy waters of Tampa Bay, The Mahaffey Theater's picturesque building hosts some of Florida's most entertaining art and performance offerings. Originally built in 1965, the renovated building's floor-to-ceiling glass façade pierces the night with softly glowing light, cordially inviting patrons inside and awakening desires in moths that can never be fulfilled. The box-style seating of the theater ensures clear sightlines for all patrons, and its excellent acoustics make the venue suitable for both thunderous rock bands and delicate chamber ensembles.
