Early philosophers often engaged in debates concerning the nature of humor, posing each other enigmatic questions beginning with "What's the deal with" and ending with "Am I right?" Indulge in classic rhetoric with today's Groupon: for $7, you get one ticket to Metro Comedy Live at Helium Comedy Club on Wednesday, July 27, at 7 p.m. (a $15 value).
Metro Comedy Live summons accomplished comedians to rev laugh-engines in popular venues throughout the East Coast. Crowd favorite Vince Barnett hosts the 60-to-90-minute-long show at Helium Comedy Club, prepping the microphone for the brain-tickling jokes of headliner Nema Williams. Williams' astute ability to make people cackle and draw giggles from stone-faced Easter Island heads has landed him multiple appearances on BET's Comic View, HBO's Bad Boys of Comedy, and two Comedy Central stand-up shows. Tanzania–born Ed Blaze also graces the stage to deliver knee-smashing jokes and anecdotes about life as an African immigrant with a flammable last name. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the show; seating is first come, first served.
