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 $13, you get two tickets to see a night of stand-up comedy at the Tacoma Comedy Club (up to a $26 value, for weekend shows) in downtown Tacoma. Show times include: 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, 8 p.m. on Thursdays, and 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
As one of the city's newest stand-up venues, Tacoma Comedy Club welcomes talented local and national yuk peddlers to its stage Wednesday–Saturday nights. A peek at its calendar reveals a host of rotating acts, such as the recent laugh-inducing likes of improv comedy king Ron Osborne and Comedy Central guest comedian Ty Barnett. Drop in March 17–19 for an intensely animated set by Michael Malone, whose imaginative take on life through his View-Master has landed on stages across 27 states on the National Lampoon's Comedy Tour and NBC's Night Shift with Kevin Ferguson.
Those looking for some midweek giggles can watch aspiring jokesters hone their bits for the weekly Wednesday open-mic night ($5). Unlike many comedy clubs and small-claims court hearings, Tacoma Comedy Club does not have a drink minimum.
Tacoma Comedy Club offers lower rates on certain days of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
- Went to the Tacoma Comedy Club last night and had a great time. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. The comedians were funny and the room was packed. Definitely a fun place to go in Tacoma!– sara b., Yelp, 11/6/10
