Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a comedy night for two at Riot Act Comedy Theater (up to a $58 total value). Groupon holders are not subject to the club’s two-drink minimum. The comedy night includes:
- Two tickets to a comedy show (up to a $40 value)
- Two drinks (up to an $18 value)<p>
Host to a variety of professional comedians and local acts, Riot Act’s stage induces fits of laughter with the wit and tomfoolery of the club’s evening comedy lineups. Guffaw-loving guests can plop down to view acts such as Jeff Caldwell, a three time performer on The Late Show with David Letterman, or fill their weekly giggle quotas with Comedy Central veteran Josh Blue. Open-mic nights give local comedians a chance to hone their acts without the threat of harsh critiques written on rotting tomatoes. In between laughs, duos can sip pours of their favorite drink from the venue’s nightly menu, which features a slew of beer, wine, and mixed drinks. Close to both public transportation and parking lots, the new club offers a convenient way to enjoy live comedy without the hassle of carpooling in a clown car.
