In today's world, people can no longer rely on court jesters to check meals for poison or retell Hamlet as a family comedy. Enjoy the versatility of more contemporary performers with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a comedy-night package for two at Tommy T's Comedy & Dinner Theatre in Rancho Cordova (up to a $54 total value). The package includes:
- Two tickets (a $40 value)
- Two drinks (up to a $14 value)
Tommy T's Comedy & Dinner Theatre turns the mic on local and national entertainers as casually dressed patrons sip ice-cold liquids between chortles. Stop by September 8–11 to catch Alonzo Bodden, Last Comic Standing's season-three winner, who has gone on to act in major films and perform nonspeaking roles in animated features. Bodden will take the stage with his “cynically good-natured” brand of storytelling. A monthly calendar chronicles weekly engagements with other comedians and troupes who aim to incite laughter by telling humor jokes or tickling random crowd members. Doors open one hour prior to 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. performances and a half hour before 10 p.m. shows. Seating at Tommy T's is first come, first served, and an extensive menu, although not included in the price of the Groupon, complements the supplied refreshments and rousing guffaws.
