Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of stand-up with today's Groupon: two tickets to The Comedy MIX. Purchase one of the following Groupons, all of which include tax:
- $7 for two Tuesday night tickets (a $15.68 value)
- $9 for two Wednesday night tickets (a $20.16 value)
- $12 for two Thursday night tickets (a $26.88 value)
- $15 for two Friday night tickets (a $33.60 value)
- $18 for two Saturday night tickets (a $40.32 value)
The Comedy MIX lays claim as downtown Vancouver's only club for comedy, and five nights a week it hosts established comedic professionals and up-and-coming amateurs in up-standing displays of hilarity. Tonight Show and Comedy Central veterans, such as Phil Hanley and Lachlan Patterson, frequent the MIX, and you can select a show from their calendar to coordinate the laugh-session with an upcoming breakup or the sudden and inexplicable misplacement of all seven volumes of your other source of humour, A la recherche du temps perdu.
Each night, the sleek Comedy MIX space comes aglow with atmospheric lighting, and a menu of gastropub fare is available for pre-show nibbling and comedic face-planting. Shows run about an hour and 45 minutes each, with showtimes at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 8:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Parking is available in the adjacent hotel parking lot.
Must be 19 or older. Your Groupon is not valid during the Vancouver Comedy Festival, running September 16–25.
