Laughing after hearing a good joke is an involuntary reaction, just like crying while cutting onions or playing air violin while listening to Beethoven. Enjoy some well-orchestrated jokes with today's Groupon to Uptown Comedy Corner on Marietta Street. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get one general-admission ticket (up to a $25 value).
- For $15, you get one VIP ticket, which entitles you to up-close seating (up to a $35 value).
Uptown's small stage has hosted big acts such as Steve Harvey, Chris Rock, and Dave Chappelle and up-and-coming comedic talent. On April 12 and 13, enjoy some diaphragm spasms induced by comedian Doug Williams, whose jocularities graced The Nutty Professor and The Friars Club Roast of Ronald McDonald. Swing by April 14–17 to see Benji Brown and Karlous Miller, whom Uptown credits with appearances on Martin Lawrence's 1st Amendment and BET's Comicview. Although today's Groupon is not good toward food or drink, Uptown keeps tongues joyously entertained with a menu of sandwiches and dinner plates in addition to libations from its full-service bar.
