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. Learn to kindle your crackling wit with today's Groupon: for $39, you get admission to a four-hour intro to standup comedy workshop from Harte Comedy at the Palm Beach Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theater (a $125 value). Choose from the following dates:
- Saturday, September 24, noon–4 p.m.
- Saturday, October 1, noon–4 p.m.
- Saturday, November 12, noon–4 p.m.
Palm Beach Improv's stage has borne the mirthful footfalls of several prominent comedians, including Tracy Morgan, Daniel Tosh, and Lisa Lampanelli. In this seminar exclusively for Groupon users, currently performing comedians school students in the basics of sound joke structure and methods for connecting with audience members that don't require bellybutton USB ports. Lessons also tour the annals of standup history and coach amateur chuckle-collectors on refining a distinct performance style. Armed with advice on overcoming stage fright, new jokers can remain as calm and slick in their routines as a sloth sporting a pompadour.
