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 performance tickets and $10 worth of food and drinks at Moxies Comedy Zone in Statesville (a $30 value). Showtimes are every Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Moxies Comedy Zone hosts top-tier and up-and-coming standup talent and pairs them with live music, a full bar, and a food menu. While watching laugh-inducing lines pour out of the mouths of comedians such as Sid Davis (Friday, June 17 to Sunday, June 19) and nationally touring stars who have graced the stages of America's Got Talent, Last Comic Standing, and several fruit conventions, chucklers can share a plate of hot wings doused in mild to hot sauces ($9.99 for 12) or a jalapeño burger ($8.99). Guests may also engineer a starch tower at the build-your-own pasta bar ($8.99).
