Riddles Comedy Club has been rolling out the laugh barrels for more than 20 years, propelling standup stars such as Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Carey, and Martin Lawrence into the spotlight. Today’s deal treats visitors to the show of their choice between now and the end of May, plus tickets to any future show attended after the first show. Iowa City raconteur Nathan Timmel (December 9–10) charms with combustible humor that regularly ripples the airwaves of Sirius Satellite Radio. Funnyman Sam Tripoli (December 16–17) from Comedy Central’s Premium Blend stalks the stage with his untamed act, and Australian comic Jim Dailakis (December 30–31) plans to fill bellies with laughs before guests pack them with abandoned New Year’s resolutions. Instead of rehearsing their own standup routines for crowds of fickle mannequins, club-goers can practice them on Riddles’ friendly bartenders as they sip beers, martinis, or long island iced teas.
Riddles Comedy Club
For more than 20 years, comedians of all levels of notoriety have peddled their laugh-inducing verbal wares on Riddles Comedy Clubs’ stages. An airbrushed city skyline sits behind the corner stage, where such comedians as Jeff Dunham, Louie Anderson, and Drew Carey slung jokes to side-split audiences. A full bar with overhanging LCD TVs dispenses alcoholic and nonalcoholic whistle-wetters in between sets. Additionally, Riddles' lots house free parking for those driving from far-off locales or patrons who can't find a limo service that takes knock-knock jokes as payment.
