Do your own spit-take with today's Groupon to Morty's Comedy Joint. With this deal, $12 gets you two comedy show admissions, an $18 value, and one menu item of your choosing, up to a $9.99 value. Use your second admission to bring along a friend, or keep it all to yourself for another performance. Bond with a funny friend, or use smitten silliness to test the waters with potential life partners.
Not your typical hole-in-the-wall comedy club, Morty's provides a swank atmosphere to match the level of quality served up from the kitchen, bar, and stage. Colorful walls and rich wooden furniture make Morty's feel more like a cozy restaurant than a slap-dash, two-night-a-week venue. Enjoy clean sight lines and a state-of-the-art sound system that surrounds you in a cuddly cushion of hilarity. Make the most of your Groupon on a Thursday night, when your admission gets you into a live jazz performance at 7 p.m., followed by a 90-minute comedy show; or stop in on a Wednesday for Ms. Pat's Bust-A-Gut Comedy Show, hosted by Funniest Mom in America Finalist Ms. Pat. There's easy parking on the weekdays.
If weekday laughter undermines your authority at work, head to Morty's on the weekend to see upcoming acts such as funnymen John Roy and Kevin Bozeman. Check out Morty's calendar for updates and showtimes.
Hysterical laughter becomes cyclical when half-chewed mouthfuls of chips, salsa, and margarita escape the tyranny of your mouth during an uncontrollable yet triumphant revolution of guffaws. The menu at Morty's features bar food favorites such as hot wings and waffle fries alongside substantial meals such as the prime rib sandwich on ciabatta bread with horseradish, provolone, and home-made chips. Share the grande nacho platter of fresh chips topped with cheese, salsa, sour cream, jalapenos, and grilled chicken or shredded barbecue pork with your sweetie to show off your Pollock-esque cheese artistry. Cozy up with warm, breaded butterfly shrimp and cocktail sauce paired with homemade potato chips.
Though Morty's has a two-drink minimum per person, a five bottle bucket of domestic beer ($17.99) will satisfy you and your date's minimum, or a couple of Red Bulls ($4.99 each) will keep you awake for late-night laughs and jittery enough to flee into the restrooms for safety if anyone brings out a puppet. The skilled bartenders prepare classic cocktails, frozen favorites, and offer a variety of wines and beers.
