Ha-ha like a hooch-hazy hyena with today's side deal: for $8, you get a general-admission ticket to see Paul Mercurio at Helium Comedy Club (a $15 value). Although Mercurio will be doing six shows at Helium, this Groupon is only valid for the show on Thursday, April 22, 2010, at 8 p.m. All patrons must be at least 21 years old. A two-item minimum is required.
Stand-up comedian Paul Mercurio has won an Emmy and a Peabody for his writing work on the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He has appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and, in 2004, he starred in his own half-hour comedy special for Comedy Central. Plan to arrive at Helium's box office no later than 7:30 p.m. on the night of the show to claim your general-admission ticket for Mercurio-made mirth and merriment.
The Helium Comedy Club has four stars from Yelpers:
- The club itself was absolutely perfect. There isn't a bad seat in the house and one of my companions was blown away by how close you all end up to the act (having seen the headlining comedian last time from a balcony in a large theater). – Kathryn M.
Paul Mercurio is a former writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, where he earned two consecutive Emmy nominations for outstanding writing. He and the other writers won in 2001.
