What You'll Get
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 $29, you get four reserved seat tickets, and two chips-and-salsa appetizers (a $98 value) at Stanford's Comedy Club, located in The Legends at Village West.
Stanford's Comedy Club has been a stand-up institution since 1975, helping catapult the careers of Sinbad, Lewis Black, Larry the Cable Guy, Lisa Lampanelli, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jeff Foxworthy. Give long-untickled funny bones the attention they deserve with shows from stand-up specialists such as Reno 911 star Carlos Alazraqui from July 13 to 16, comedy legend Jimmie "J.J." Walker from May 4 to 8, and April Macie from July 27 to 31. Distract tongues from mouths' incessant laughter with two appetizers of chips and salsa. Groupon buyers can bring along an entourage of three fellow laughter lovers and up to 25 imaginary friends, or split the deal over two visits to avoid midshow arguments between cat-loving Tories and dog-person Whigs. Call ahead to make a reservation, and catch an up-and-coming gut-busting comedian as they climb the stand-up ranks to stardom.
A one-drink or one-food-item minimum is enforced at the club.

About Stanford & Sons Comedy Club
Originally opening in Westport in 1975, Stanford & Son's Comedy Club gave an early outlet to comedy giants such as Jerry Seinfeld and Roseanne. The club packs in up to 300 audience members for sets from a long list of up-and-comers as well as seasoned performers. The pros fish for chuckles during shows held Wednesday–Sunday; Wednesdays also give novices the chance to try their hand at the club's open mic. All the while, drinks flow freely from two sizable bars.
