Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of stand-up with today's Groupon: for $14, you get $50 worth of cover, admission, food, drinks, and merchandise at Laughs Unlimited. Essentially, once you’ve paid for entry and cover to the show of your choice, you may use the remainder amount as cash on anything you like. Groupon customers will be seated in the special VIP balcony above the main stage, prime seats for muppet-based heckling.
With 27 years under its seltzer-squirting belt, Laughs Unlimited is the 12th-longest-running comedy club in the country and remains dedicated to hosting the top national comics in a welcoming environment. The club’s "Wall of Shame" features such living legends as Jerry Seinfeld, Dennis Miller, and Dana Carvey, all of whom cut their teeth on Laughs Unlimited’s razor-sharp mics when they were young and hungry and unsitcommed. The club continues to stay relevant in the chucklesphere by playing home to Kevin Pollack (whose Walken impression is still definitive), the wry and charming Jack Gallagher, and Michael Winslow (the sound effects guy from the Police Academy movies). The club hosts comedy shows Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights at 8 p.m., with two shows on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. The first Wednesday of every month showcases local talent by featuring the funniest youngbloods Sacramento has to offer. Those looking to hone their own comedic chops should make a playlist of nothing but “Lose Yourself” and head to Laughs Unlimited's Open Mic, held every first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. ($5 cover).
Laughs Unlimited replenishes busted guts with a fully stocked bar and menu, featuring hearty delights such as the Nacho Mama’s Nachos ($8) and Mexican Street Tacos ($5). And in case Jay Leno shows up and demands his old Laughs Unlimited time slot back, the bar will give you a fighting chance at laughing by flooding you with beers, wine, and specialty cocky tales such as Laughing Gas (Myers’s Dark Rum, crème de cacao, and Buttershots with a Bailey’s float, $7.75).
Recently given a full renovation with new furniture and four plasma-screen TVs, Laughs Unlimited's top-notch AV system will make sure that each punch line is presented with crystal-clear clarity, unless Steven Wright is performing that night. Exercise your flabby funny bone with today’s Groupon to Laughs Unlimited. You can also buy extras as gifts for any friends who’ve never noticed the humorous minutiae of air travel.
Due to the adult subject matter (taxes, working in an office, parenting), customers must be 17 or older.
Yelpers gives Laughs Unlimited four stars:
- I've been to Laughs Unlimited several times over the past few years and I have never been disappointed. It's a small enough club that you get an intimate show- but large enough that the crowd can really let loose. – Linsey F.
- Our server was as good as it gets. She was attentive and got all of our orders straight including the waters. – Coral H.
- I've had many, many laughs here. Even brought an ex-boyfriend to break up with him after the show. – Emily S.
With past performers such as Jerry Seinfeld, Dennis Miller, and Dana Carvey, Laughs Unlimited has accumulated a formidable collection of laughs in its near 30-year history. Owner and booker Steve Grove keeps the comedy lineup fresh with imported mountain air and a steady rotation of established and up-and-coming comedians. Warm brick walls and exposed-beam ceilings line the recently renovated club. Laughs Unlimited’s full menu furnishes empty bellies with Mexican-inspired tacos, burritos, and snacks, which go down smooth with several Californian wines and an arsenal of signature cocktails.
