Comedy has long been used to subvert the established order, shedding light on modern life's pervasive absurdities and fomenting distrust of potentially seltzer-filled boutonnieres. Discover some rollicking truths with this GrouponLive deal to see a standup performance by Tim Kidd, presented by Comedy Planet at The Wormhole. For $40, you get four general-admission tickets for May 5 at 8:30 p.m., plus a bottle of red or white wine (an $80 value).
At Comedy Planet's monthly showcases of live standup comedy, nationally touring comics hold tight to their mics as they weather a storm of laughs inside the vortex of hipness that is The Wormhole. On May 5, the quick-witted Tim Kidd calls upon an eventful childhood marked by multiple run-ins with the law as he expresses his feelings toward authority through energetic, rib-tickling routines. His commanding stage presence and undeniable charisma culminates in his retelling of captivating life stories, tiptoeing on the line of edginess without ever resorting to vulgarity. Producing the show is Steve Hofstetter, a New York–based comedian and one of the original columnists of CollegeHumor.com. In an interview with SavannahNow.com, Hofstetter details his interest in helping harvest a comedy circuit in Savannah, where he had incorrectly surmised that the lush weeping willows and verdant spanish moss had siphoned the community's entire supply of funny.
With general-admission seating, groups can arrive early to snag tables and seats close to the stage, where they can sip from a bottle of vino to quench the mightiest of thirsts and soothe throats after the most cartoon-villain-sounding of laughs.
