Medicinal laughter can be cheaply attained in Canada, where back-alley comedians sell jokes about famous Canadian postmaster generals. Today’s Groupon brings legal laughs closer to home: for $19, you get two general-admission tickets to the Laughing Skull Lounge (up to a $40 value), plus a download of the greatest hits of the 2010 Laughing Skull Comedy Festival (a $10 value).

Tucked in the back of The Vortex Bar & Grill in Midtown, Laughing Skull Lounge serves up beer, cocktails, and side-splitting laughs in an intimate 74-seat space. The comedy curators treat stand-up as a form of art, like piñatas or baroque string quartets, and allow only the scene’s most prominent artists to regale audiences with humorous stylings. The laughs at Laughing Skull are often searing and served with a progressive slant, with upcoming shows that feature national touring comedians such as Conan guest comedian and Last Comic Standing alum Brendon Walsh, Comedy Central and Action Figure Therapy hero Jarrod Harris, and subversive, globetrotting BBC veteran Glenn Wool.

Spit-takes and gusts of guffaws are practically guaranteed to cover the vast majority of Laughing Skull, since it's the world’s tiniest full-time stand-up theater. Hit up Vortex for burgers preshow (food is not included in today’s Groupon) and slink to the back for a hysterical, comedy-show dessert; audiences are discouraged from placing their leftover food on stage, even as a gift. Wash down the laughter with a couple of drinks—Laughing Skull's two-drink minimum is easier to swallow with today's deal.

Must be 18 or older. Not valid for special events.

Customer Reviews

best hamburger in the city next door at the Vortex, get there early and enjoy dinner before the comedy
Timothy G. · January 7, 2016
Get in line early with general admission passes. Great place to catch a comedy show. Connected to the Vortex which has really good food but gets really busy so plan on accordingly.
