He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $24, you get two admissions (a $17 average value each), one appetizer (a $9 average value), and four admissions to future shows at Brea Improv (up to a $111 average value). Brea Improv has a two-item minimum purchase, which is not included with today’s Groupon.
Drawing comedic talent from across the States, Improv's country-wide clubs have hosted such legendary side-splitters as Richard Pryor, Billy Crystal, and Ellen DeGeneres. Brea Improv posts a joke-packed calendar brimming with pictures of kittens in tutus and comedic talent such as Untamed Comedy, which churns out chuckles on July 12 at 8 p.m. Sharpening his humor fangs on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Gene Pompa takes the hot seat with his offbeat perspective on August 25 at 8 p.m., and Bobby Collins, lights the arena August 26–28, with explosive monologues and a barrage of one-liners.
From its old-timey marquee to the hospitable chuckling chamber within, Brea Improv crafts a classic comedy-club experience. Dark wood and tabletop candles create a stylish home for hilarity, allowing one to focus on the performer rather than the punch-line-indicating sirens that mar other standup experiences. This Groupon covers one appetizer, but other comestibles and beverages are available so onlookers can time guffaws with dips of cheese-covered Improv nachos or sips of Toad Hollow merlot ($7).
At the Brea Improv, comics lure laughs from deep within bellies as they follow in the footsteps of standup legends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have performed at the Improv’s chain of comedy clubs. The club's calendar schedules comedians as often as seven nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-coming funsters who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers. Comedy fans can also savor Brea Improv's recurring resident shows, such as Richard Villa's Refried Tuesdays, or Saturday night’s Slanted Comedy, one of the longest-running Asian-comedy shows in the family of Improv clubs. Audience members munch on savory appetizers, such as spinach-and-artichoke dip or fried calamari, while sipping cocktails to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table.
