At San Jose Improv, comics lure laughs from bellies in the hopes of following in the footsteps of standup legends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have graced the Improv’s stages. The club's calendar schedules comedians as often as six nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-coming funsters who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers. Though special shows are excluded, Groupon holders may attend sets from a diverse lineup of certified funnymen, including Tony Rock (August 16–19), whose spot-on impersonations landed him an acting spot in the 2005 blockbuster Hitch and a job hosting BET’s Apollo Live, a talent showcase and singing competition. Audience members munch on their choice of a savory appetizer, such as spinach-and-artichoke dip or fried calamari, and sip a cocktail to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table (drinks not included with this Groupon).
