Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets (up to a $6 value on Thursdays, and $9 on Fridays and Saturdays) and $20 worth of finger food, sandwiches, and drinks at Loonees Comedy Corner, Colorado Springs' only comedy club. Audiences must be 21 years old or older.
Loonees hosts comics, hypnotists, improv groups, and other mirth-makers for five shows each week. The club books up-and-coming entertainers along with nationally renowned joke virtuosos, providing audiences with the sort of variety that made Barbara Streisand's catch phrases so popular. Past performers include Troy Baxley, a two-time finalist at the HBO Comedy Festival, and Lamont Ferguson, winner of the 2005 Seattle International Comedy Competition. Visit Loonees' website to find out who is appearing this week.
Between jokes, guests can soothe their laugh-worn abdomens with a menu of finger food and sandwiches. Soft pretzels come in a variety of styles and accompanied by one of a trio of dips ($3.50), while garlic cheese toast with marinara sauce ($5.95) is largely responsible for keeping the club vampire-free. Celebrate brotherhood and facial hair with the Groucho, a combination of thin-sliced steak, onions, and cheese ($7.50). Or harass hunger with The Heckler, a pairing of cold turkey with provolone ($7). A full bar also helps keep thirsts quenched and humor receptors lubricated. Reservations are required.
Loonees has a two-item minimum (food or drink, including soft drinks) for all audience members.
