He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with this GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get four general-admission tickets to a regular comedy show at Richmond Funny Bone Comedy Club & Restaurant (up to a $92 value, including all fees). Customers may choose from any show on the calendar, except for special engagements and Saturday shows that are marked in red.
Backed by 25 years of comedy tradition, the Richmond Funny Bone Comedy Club & Restaurant entertains audiences with a robust lineup of standup entertainment. Upcoming acts this fall include Bronx native Mark Viera (October 4–7), whose amplified stage persona delves into the proper etiquette spouses should observe when dealing with each other’s cell-phone and social-media accounts. The following month, actress and comedian Loni Love (November 8–11) lays down a hilarious brand of social commentary. With guest spots and reoccurring roles on TV shows such as the Dr. Oz Show, Chelsea Lately, and CNN’s D.L. Hughley Breaks the News, Love has no problems assessing the successes and failures she sees at public events that range from entertainment award shows to presidential press conferences.
On the first Tuesday of every month, amateur yuksters from around the area showcase their acts in the Clash of the Comics, hoping to win enough attention to catch a regular slot on the schedule. All seating is on a first-come, first-sat basis, so early laugh seekers will find themselves face-to-face with each punch line as it sprouts from the microphone.
