In today’s world, people can no longer rely on court jesters to check meals for poison or retell Hamlet as a family comedy. Enjoy the versatility of more contemporary performers with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $50, you get one winter-season pass for two to Stanford’s Comedy Club (a $245 value). The package includes:
- Two tickets to any five winter- and spring-season shows through April 30 (a $220 value)
- One order of chips and dip per show (a $25 value)
At Stanford’s Comedy Club, seasoned and upcoming comedians vie for patrons’ chuckles on the stage that launched the careers of notable funnymen Larry the Cable Guy, Lewis Black, and Lisa Lampanelli. On Thursday–Sunday evenings, audiences file into the intimate showroom awaiting funny folks such as Full House alum Dave Coulier, performing January 12–14. Sketch group Broken Lizard, known for writing and acting in the major motion pictures Super Troopers and Club Dread, hits the stage February 1–5 to generate contagious cackles. Visitors munch on chips and dip as Crank Yankers’ Jim Florentine pranks audiences February 22–25, and Australian comedian Jim Jefferies provokes mischievous belly laughs with his devious standup, poking touchy subjects such as religion and the weather on March 8–10. Check out the full lineup of giggle-makers here.
Stanford’s Comedy Club, located in the Legends at Village West, prevails as one of the few comedy theaters to be built from the ground up. Like a Las Vegas showroom, the two-level structure is properly fortified to prevent contagious laughter from breaching into full-blown guffaw pandemics. Although not included in today’s Groupon, food, cocktails, and nonflammable beverages are available at all shows. Call ahead when using more than two tickets per show, as the club gladly accommodates large groups.
Stanford and Sons Comedy Club
Originally opening in Westport in 1975, Stanford and Son's Comedy Club gave an early outlet to comedy giants such as Jerry Seinfeld and Roseanne. Now located at a new location in the Rosana Square shopping center, the club and restaurant packs in up to 300 audience members for sets from a long list of up-and-comers as well as seasoned performers. The pros fish for chuckles during shows held Wednesday–Sunday; Tuesdays are reserved for novices to try their hand at the club's open mic. Drinks flow freely from two sizable bars, and its new restaurant menu features southern-flared delights, including blackened catfish, glazed salmon, and Dr. Pepper ribs.
