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 today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets to a standup-comedy show at Vaudeville Cafe (a $24 value). Shows take place on Fridays at 9:30 p.m. and on Saturdays at 10:30 p.m.
Vaudeville Cafe hosts a regular and rotating influx of top-level comedians featured on the Tonight Show, Comedy Central, and HBO. Friday and Saturday evenings, guests can sidle down for side-splitting sets from upcoming comics such as veteran smile-slinger Richard Chassler and Rob Feingold, who fuses standup with a cappella music to keep toes tapping while bellies bounce with laughter and arms inexplicably perform the YMCA. Before imbibing the contrarian wit of Saleem, guests can loosen funny bones with sudsy brews, wines, or frozen libations (not included with today's deal). Guests are seated on a first-come, first-served basis.
