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 $20, you get $40 worth of cover, admission, food, drinks, and merchandise at Laughs Unlimited. Once your Groupon has paid for entry and cover to the show of your choice, you may use the remaining amount as cash towards the two-item minimum and anything else 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 one of the longest-running comedy clubs in the country and remains dedicated to hosting the top national comics in a welcoming environment. The club’s "walls of shame" feature such living legends as Jerry Seinfeld and Dana Carvey, who cut their teeth on Laughs Unlimited’s razor-sharp mics when they were young, hungry, and unsitcommed. The club continues to stay relevant in the chucklesphere by playing home to Kevin Pollak and the wry and satirical Shawn Wayans, among others. The club hosts comedy shows Thursday at 8 p.m. and Sunday nights at 7 p.m., with two shows on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
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), as well as a flood of beers, wine, and specialty cocktails such as Laughs on the Beach (Svedka vodka, peach schnapps, amaretto, cranberry juice, and OJ, $7.75).
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.
