Nietzsche said that man invented laughter because he suffers so deeply, which is true for anyone who’s endured Nietzsche’s dogma-laden prop comedy. Enjoy philosophically sound hilarity with today's GrouponLive deal to Uncle D's Comedy Underground, located in the upper level of Bluz at the Bend. Doors open at 6 p.m., and shows start at 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday September–June. Choose between the following options:
• For $12, you get two tickets to a Friday- or Saturday-night comedy show (up to a $24 value).
• For $24, you get four tickets to a Friday- or Saturday-night comedy show, plus $7 toward any appetizer (up to a $55 value).
Uncle D's Comedy Underground generates hearty guffaws and spit-take evenings with professional live comedy performed by national touring acts, along with a personal stable of 300 standup comedians and variety acts. Under the proprietorship of funnyman, hypnotist, and former Kenny Rogers bodyguard Don Parkins, Uncle D’s grants Spokane the perks of a Las Vegas emporium without the threat of a lava flood from the Mirage's Volcano. The glitzy yet intimate 125-seat showroom ushers in spates of freshly picked chuckle creators to suffocate doldrums under giggle-stitched pillows. With $7 toward any appetizer, quartets of snicker-fiends can heckle back with maws full of Cajun fries ($4.95) or gather the tangy petals from the Bluz Bloomer onion ($6.95) and flatter the lonesome comedians with the gift of fried flowers.
