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 $15, you get two tickets and $10 toward appetizers at the Loony Bin Comedy Club (a $30 value). Hurry to get your laughs as this Groupon expires in just three months.
Setting the stage for hilarity on shows such as Comedy Central's Insomniac, and Fox's Show Me the Funny, the Loony Bin Comedy Club presents a mirth-filled environment where patrons can enjoy good service and creative drink concoctions amid impressive feats of farce. Serving as a stepping stone to up-and-coming comedy kings, the club's fluorescent backdrop features a new comedian every week, and has welcomed guffaw greats such as Jeff Foxworthy, Tommy Chong, Dave Attell, and a marmoset dressed as Woody Allen. Upcoming performers include Larry Reeb (April 27–30), known for his politically incorrect alter ego "Uncle Lar," and Arkansas native Tim Gaither (May 4–7), who draws upon his dysfunctional upbringing to create his chortle-inducing characters on command.
As customers roll in the aisles, solicitous servers relinquish an array of appetizers, including wing-wings ($5.95), neat o frito pies ($4.85), and cheese sticks ($5.75), to help vanquish howl-induced hunger pains. Though drinks are not included with today's Groupon, Loony Bin bartenders handcraft a large menu of intoxicating inventions such as the Lobotomy ($5.05)––a mellowing mixture of five liquors blended with cranberry, pineapple, Sierra Mist, and grenadine––or the Grape Nut ($5.35), made with amaretto, raspberry liquor, half-and-half, and the approval of grandmothers everywhere.
