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 two tickets to any show, plus two free drinks per ticket, at The Looney Bin Comedy Club (a $30 value), located on Staten Island.
With a barbed-wire fence as its backdrop, The Looney Bin Comedy Club, opened just last year, promises its patrons a night of cutting-to-the-core comedy provided by both up-and-coming and veteran stand-up comics. As giant portraits of Eddie Murphy, Dane Cook, and Don Rickles look on, you will exhaust your internal laugh-engine at any show, thanks to the funny-bone fuel of such glee-gas-pumpers as mirthful magic-maker Chipps Cooney, appearing on Saturday, October 30, or punch-line slinger Joseph Anthony, appearing on Saturday, November 6. As your eyes drink in the chill, relaxing vibes of the club's space, each ticket holder's taste buds will drink in two selections from The Looney Bin's bar, featuring adult libations such as Samuel Adams beers, long island iced teas, and Bloody Marys, able to lubricate vocal chords sore from constant chuckling.
- The Looney Bin is a dream in many respects, not only for the owners but also for the talent gaining valuable experience on its stage. The owners also hope the Travis spot will fulfill the wishes of Staten Islanders looking for a few laughs in their own backyard at affordable prices. – Jodi Lee Reifer, SILive.com
