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 four tickets to see a night of stand-up comedy at the Tacoma Comedy Club in downtown Tacoma (up to a $60 value for weekend shows). Showtimes include 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, 8 p.m. on Thursdays, and 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
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, including seasoned salty vets and guffaw-inducing up-and-comers. Drop in June 17 and June 18 for the cueball hijinks of TV-veteran, author, and recording-artist Spanky, on tour promoting the musical translation of his self-help novel Men Are Sluts. David Testroet puts the ha-ha in his harmonica on July 24 and July 25, and the laconic, sardonic Todd Sawyer takes a break from his tour with Ron White to commit first-degree snicker-slaughter on July 8 and July 9. Those looking for some midweek giggles can watch aspiring jokesters hone their bits for the free weekly Wednesday open-mic night. Unlike many comedy clubs and small-claims court hearings, Tacoma Comedy Club does not have a drink minimum.
