Comedians tickle the funny bone in the same way that guitarists shred the music gland and teachers punch you in the knowledge brain. Receive a lesson in comedic anatomy with today's Groupon: for $18, you get one ticket to a performance by comedian Myq Kaplan at the Sabes Jewish Community Center benefit (a $36 value) on Thursday, May 5 at 7:45 p.m. at the Metropolitan Ballroom on Wayzata Boulevard. Although the benefit starts at 6:15 p.m., this Groupon is only valid for Myq Kaplan's performance and the following social hour and dessert. Myq Kaplan's performance starts at 7:45 p.m.; doors open at 7:15 p.m.
Myq Kaplan's witticisms and humor harangues have captivated a wide-reaching fan base through television stints and his hilarious CD, Vegan Mind Meld. Having made appearances on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Last Comic Standing, as well as his own Comedy Central special, Kaplan combines clever wordplay with a spectacular laser show created by shining a flashlight through his glasses. The audience can soothe its sore diaphragms after the show with confections and concoctions from the dessert and cash bar. Proceeds from the show benefit the Sabes Jewish Community Center's services and programs that address community needs.
