The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Apr 14, 2011. Amount paid never expires. Must be 21 or older. Reservation required. Seating is first-come, first-served. Must buy at least 2 drinks.

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 $9, you get either one ticket to any Friday or Saturday show (up to a $20 value) or three tickets to a Wednesday or Thursday show (up to a $45 value) at The Comedy Store in La Jolla. Specify which package you prefer when you call The Comedy Store to redeem your Groupon. All shows are for ages 21 and older and have a two drink minimum. This Groupon is not valid for special events, such as $25 ticket shows.

The original Comedy Store in Los Angeles helped launch the careers of professional funnybone-ticklers such as Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, George Carlin, David Letterman, and Dave Chappelle. Its La Jolla location similarly unleashes a beehive of belly laughs, with live stand-up shows held five nights a week (weekday tickets $8, $10, or $15; weekend tickets $20). Upcoming shows include a double side-splitter on October 22 and 23 by Dov Davidoff, who has appeared on Comedy Central and little-seen The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Bryan Callen, an original cast member on MADtv and a familiar face from films such as Old School and Bad Santa. Call at least 24 hours in advance to reserve your ticket—seats are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis—and do your part to help deplete the planet of its limited laugh supply with a night of chuckles and chortles at The Comedy Store in La Jolla.


More than 60 Yelpers give The Comedy Store in La Jolla a four-star average rating, and it has more than 930 fans on Facebook:

The Comedy Store

What’s now known as The Comedy Store was once called Ciro's, a nightlife hotspot in the 1940s and '50s. Playing host to glitzy stars and shadowy mobsters, the club's history is shrouded in rumors of mafia assassinations and untimely deaths. However, the joint buried its seedy past by converting to a comedy club and helping launch the careers of such legends as Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, George Carlin, David Letterman, and Dave Chappelle. The younger La Jolla location lets laugh-starved patrons bask in the same high-powered comedic atmosphere as its progenitor.
