Like beauty, comedy is in the eye of the beholder and is often delivered by waves of electromagnetic radiation. Zap your funnybone safely with today's Groupon: for $4, you get a general-admission ticket to your choice of Saturday Anti-Cooperation League improv or Friday-night stand-up comedy at the Sacramento Comedy Spot in Midtown.

Improv comedy is as sporadic and unpredictable as living life or being best friends with Wayne Brady. The long-form Anti-Cooperation League shows, which run every Saturday at 9 p.m., creatively intertwine dynamic improv scenes that start with simple inspiration from an audience member's wallet or purse. Friday-night stand-up shows showcase the talents of individual comics at 8 p.m. and rotate from week to week.

Laughing has many health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure and freaking out budgies. Unwind after a long week, earn popularity points retelling jokes at work, or convince your significant other to loosen up or fall apart with a weekend show. Sacramento Comedy doesn't have a bar, but there's a popcorn bar with more than 15 different toppings. Shows are open to all ages but should be considered PG-13, though ghosts and other ageless entities are welcome.

Reviews

KCRA 3 featured the Sacramento Comedy Spot in a video segment, and the Sacramento Press went to an Anti-Cooperation League show:

  • A compelling blend between dry wit, slapstick and quick thinking enthralled the crowd of over 100. During the performance, the comedians welcomed audience volunteers to the stage to share details about their lives. Adeptly transitioning between scenes portraying gambling-obsessed women, lustful elderly men and hypochondriac middle school children, the performers created a series of hilarious scenes inspired by the volunteers' lives. – Anthony Bento, Sacramento Press

Yelpers give the snicker shack 4.5 stars:

  • One of the hidden gems in Sacramento...The people are are [sic] great and even though the cast is always changing, I always have a great time! – Jenny W.
