He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to a comedy show at Nick's Comedy Stop in the Theater District (a $40 value). This deal is only good for Nick's headliner shows, which take place Friday and Saturday evenings.
After more than 30 years of hosting giggle extractors such as Jay Leno, Phyllis Diller, and Jerry Seinfeld, Nick's Comedy Stop continues to manufacture belly laughs in a laid-back atmosphere. Snicker yourself silly at an 8:30 p.m. show that includes a mirthful host and two opening acts before the headliner takes the stage to mercilessly tickle funny bones until they give up their ATM codes. Upcoming shows feature laugh masters such as Jon Fisch on February 25–26, Michael Petit on March 4–5, Steve Sweeney on May 21-22, and a showcase of Boston's best comedians on March 12. Sprinkle your internal chucklebeds with a delectable nectar from the full bar (drinks are not covered by this Groupon), and after the show, follow your designated driver or designated dog-musher to the nearby 200 Stuart Street Garage, which offers $10 validated parking on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights for Nick's Comedy Spot attendees.
