Without audiences, comics boost their self-esteem by performing in front of pigeons, who emit a deafening cackle when force-fed expensive cashews. Join in a real-life laugh track with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two people to a show at the Funny Bone, in Bossier City (a $20 value). Showtimes are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 and 10:30 p.m.
The Funny Bone has farmed laughs thanks to comedy heavyweights such as Cedric the Entertainer and Jamie Kennedy, as well as up-and-coming talents with fresh faces, fresh routines, and that fresh pine scent. Upcoming comics include Sam Demaris (Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28), the winner of the 2002 "Houston's Funniest Person" award. Couples looking to laugh off a first-date marriage proposal can cash in on the gut-wrenchingly honest observations of Comedy Central–featured Rodney Laney, whose Jersey-brewed stylings are finely tuned to tickle the giggleplex and pluck the shock-cartilage (Wednesday, July 13 and Thursday, July 14).
