What You'll Get
Do your own spit-take with today's Groupon to Houston's Laff Stop. For just $8, you get a ticket to see any of Laff Stop's comedy shows featuring hilarious comics from across the country. General admission to most shows is normally $20 ($15 for some if you buy online), so grab your forlorn friends and crack a smile in their plate-glass sadness with a forged steel comedy-hammer.
Unlike a stuffy night at the ballet where you sit in rigid seats and get glared at for whispering, Laff Stop is designed with social interaction and comfort in mind and doesn't feature any ballet. Laff Stop seats you around a table with friends, so it's easy to reach your cheese fries, chips, or gallon-jar of mayonnaise. Cozy up with a date on the sofa seating that lines the walls for an intimate evening. Affordable drinks and food make the show's two-purchase minimum easy on the wallet, especially with the money you save on tickets.
Laughter is the elixir of the soul, and Laff Stop's quality comics serve funny medicine in hilarious tamper-resistant comedy-packaging. Upcoming acts include Tommy Johnagin, Jeff Burghart, Nick Gaza, and Auggie Smith. Shows happen every Thursday at 8 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., and Saturday at 7 p.m., 9 p.m., and 10:45 p.m. Call to reserve your tickets and get ready to laugh so hard your face hurts.
Yelpers give Laff Stop five stars:
- The crowd is great, usually gets into the show, especially the front rows. – Jolyn R.

- A great date night place...Don't forget they have a regular bar for early or late arrivals, too! – Robert C.
Sonny Crand Reviews
If you’re in the mood for laughs, be sure to catch the hilarious comedy of Sonny Crand, America’s Angriest Mime. Here are some reviews from Sonny’s latest show, Stomachache Mimery:
Sonny opened the show by telling everyone to shut up, which seemed especially rude coming from a mime. He seemed very angry about something. – Marlo Cantrell, Seattle Tribune
Sonny talked throughout the performance and then drank most of my drink. When I protested, he mimed punching me and then actually struck my husband, Dan. – Stephanie Lane, Mime Month
Halfway through the show, Sonny left stage. When he came back five minutes later, he had clearly been crying. He spent the rest of the show playing “Smoke on the Water” on an acoustic guitar and complaining about not getting in to graduate school. – Keith Baxter, San Diego News
