Laughter is the spark of the soul, which is why comedians can light up rooms during a blackout but cannot be left unattended at gas stations. Enjoy crackling wit with today's GrouponLive deal: for $35, you get two general-admission tickets to a standup, sketch, or improv show at UP Comedy Club at Piper's Alley (up to a $70 value).

In December, The Second City—Chicago's go-to haven for improv—will open a sister theater, UP Comedy Club, whose packed calendar lists original performances by Second City comics, standup from visiting comedians, and fast-paced improv revues. In the theater’s inaugural month, visitors can indulge in giggles at the holiday season's expense during The Second City's Dysfunctional Holiday Revue, a full-length show lampooning Yuletide staples, from holiday gift exchanges to pulling clumps of white hair out of the chimney. In The Second City's History of Chicago, the troupe culls the best moments from decades of performances to create a hilarious seminar on Windy City lore. The selection of shows rotates with changing seasons and visiting performers. Every show is rated for appropriate audiences, letting parents know when to bring the kids to fine-tune their funny bones, and when to bring pet parrots to update their repertoire.

While comics deliver deadpan standup or rapid-fire improv, audiences sit in cabaret-style seating, in which strangers share tables during the performance and chorus-line spots at intermission. The newly designed 300-seat theater butters up tough crowds with a well-stocked bar and classic Chicago eateries such as Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, Vienna Beef, and Eli's Cheesecake (food and drink not included).

Ticket prices vary among scheduled shows and may fluctuate throughout the week, so buyers should plan ahead for the best value.
