A good belly laugh exercises the abdomen, improves a cloudy mood, and comforts homesick reindeer with familiar, Santaesque sounds. Ease a four-legged friend's melancholy with today's GrouponLive deal: for $14, you get one reserved-seating ticket to see Russell Brand at the Mullins Center in Amherst on Saturday, November 19, at 8 p.m. (up to a $28 value, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Reserved seating is located in the upper E and W sections.
Actor and comedian Russell Brand frees chortles from belly prisons with his unique style of manic, irreverent humor. Riffing on the nature of fame and celebrity, Brand regales audiences with edgy observations and outsized characters to delight audiences grown bored with tamer comedians and jests told by telephone time-of-day services. Visiting a series of colleges, the tour filters the eccentricities of American universities through Brand's singular wit. The University of Massachusetts' Mullins Center contains the glee in arena-style seating, ensuring everyone has a clear view of both Brand and the cricket whispering jokes in his ear.
