Stand-up comedy is much more entertaining than its closest cousin, sit-down comedy, which is only performed by off-duty librarians perched on a tree stump. Stick to a proven comedic style with today's Groupon to Stand Up, Scottsdale! Comedy Club. The intimate 100-person venue, which is only open to those 18+, plays host to two shows (at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.) on both Friday and Saturday nights. Though Stand Up, Scottsdale! offers $5 tickets to its 10 p.m. shows for students, firefighters, police officers, and military personnel, this Groupon still represents the best deal for most buyers. Fill up on huge, meaty chuckles and svelte guffaws weekly, with a rotating cast of talented funny persons. Past performers have included comedians from Chelsea Lately and Comedy Central presents such as Bret Ernst and Mo Mandel. Check the upcoming shows for a sneak peek at the giggles to come. During shows, there is a two item minimum, so prime your laugh pump with offerings from the full bar or snack on some appetizers from Papu Chulo's Mexican restaurant, which is in the showroom.
At Stand-Up, Scottsdale!, bellies ache from a rotating selection of nationally known comedians seen on Comedy Central and late-night talk shows.
