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 Groupon: for $22, you get a comedy package for two at Laughing Skull Lounge, located inside The Vortex (up to a $57.20 value). The package includes the following:
- Two general-admission tickets (up to a $47.20 value, including tax and the service charge)
- A digital download of The Best of Laughing Skull Festival 2011 (a $10 value)
Voted Atlanta’s best comedy club by Creative Loafing, Laughing Skull’s stage presents national and local comics, including well-known names such as Paul F. Tompkins, in an intimate 74-seat room. Ruffle through the digital pages of the lounge’s calendar, before quaffing a two-drink minimum of water bottles, soft drinks or alcoholic beverages in preparation for upcoming performers such as Tom Simmons and Donnell Rawlings. Or enjoy the talents of on-the-rise chuckle merchants during Open Mic nights held at 8 p.m. every Tuesday and Wednesday. After returning home, open up a fresh container of canned laughter to complement a digital download of The Best of Laughing Skull Festival 2011.
