What You'll Get
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 $15, you get two general-admission tickets and an appetizer at Morty's Comedy Joint on East 96th Street (up to a $38 value).
Morty’s Comedy Joint rounds up professional comedians from across the country to solicit laughs in a classy comedy club that seats up to 325 guests and features high-quality audio and video equipment. Two general-admission tickets grant stand-up fans passage to their choice of a variety of uproariously funny acts, such as Tom Simmons, a finalist on Comcast's Trial by Laughter, and Kyle Grooms, an up-and-coming funny-bone tickler who has appeared on Premium Blend, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and Chappelle's Show. In addition to quelling laugh hungers, this deal serves up an appetizer of your choice from the bar-style edibles menu, such as the cheesy spinach dip, made with melted cheddar and jack cheese laced with spinach and served with fresh-made tricolor tortilla chips ($5.99), or Morty's fry basket, which is piled high with chili con queso, sour cream, diced red onion, jalapeños, and chives ($5.99). Guffawing guests can lubricate chuckle tubes as they slurp down various microbeers ($4.75 a bottle), sip glasses of merlot ($5.50), or distinguish each of the four rums hiding in a signature Morty’s Madness cocktail ($12.99). Drinks are not included in this Groupon.
Because the shows are so popular and seating is first-come, first-served, Morty’s Comedy Joint recommends that guests show up 30 minutes before showtime. Use today’s deal to share an intimately laughable experience with a date, friend, or business partner who needs to lighten up about those letters from the IRS.
