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)
Host to a variety of professional comedians and local acts, Riot Act Comedy Theater'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 Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson, hosts of VH1's That Metal Show, or fill their weekly giggle quotas at Jeff Kreisler's satirical Get Rich Cheating show. 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 car-pooling in a clown car.
