Laughter is the best medicine and, like cookie dough, the second-best medicine, it immediately fills the void left by unanswered letters to the Pillsbury doughboy. Take in the healing power of laughter with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get your choice of either two tickets to a Friday or Saturday show or four tickets to a Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday show at the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club (up to a $60 value).
Ventura Harbor Comedy Club’s owners are veteran jokesters, having summoned laughs on Comedy Central and in front of troops serving in Iraq. Choose from an array of chortle-hunters dotting the club’s current schedule. Spend an evening with Jimmy Pardo, who has shared the stage with the likes of Conan O'Brien and Sarah Silverman, on Friday, May 13, or enjoy a ladies’ night out augmented by free eats from The Savory Cafe on Saturday, May 19. Unlike your exclusive interview with a pet turtle, the club’s May 26 TV taping hosted by comedian Brian Sheil will feature broadcast-ready jokes free of frightened retreats into protective shells. Seating in the classic drape-and-candle theater is unassigned, and a two-beverage minimum allows patrons to quash thirst in both sides of their mouths.
