What You'll Get

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 $20, you get two tickets to Laughing Skull Lounge (up to a $40 value).

Tucked in the back of the den of deliciousness that is 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 Baroque string quartets or piñatas, 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 Late Night With David Letterman alum Nick Griffin and Tom Simmons.

Your spit-take is 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 pre-show 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.

Creative Loafing Atlanta named the Laughing Skull Lounge Best Venue for Stand-Up Comedy in 2009, and Yelpers give it an average of four stars. Google Mappers give the comedy lounge a 4.5-star average.

  • In a room that small, crowd work becomes an inside joke, and the comic you've seen on TV transforms into your hilarious buddy, albeit with a microphone and a spotlight. – Noah Gardenswartz, Creative Loafing
  • However, the most unexpected surprise is that this place truly IS legendary. Imagine my surprise when an unbilled Margaret Cho (who just happened to be hanging out) took the stage. Evidently she's a local - and with her "crashing the party", the ambiance of the Laughing Skull turned from small, intimate venue to a really funny house party. – spartevan v., Yelp
