Humor is often in the eye of the beholder, although stand-up comedians also frequently inject it directly into audience members' ears, noses, throats, and ribs. Find hilarity in all the right, wrong, and questionable places with today's Groupon: for $16, you get admission for two people to a show at Funny Bone Comedy Club & Restaurant in Virginia Beach (a $45 value). This Groupon is good for any show except for those on Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and those designated "special engagements," which are highlighted in red on the club's schedule.
The first Funny Bone location opened in 1982 and has spread infectious laughter ever since, featuring performances by established stars such as Drew Carey and Jerry Seinfeld, as well as up-and-coming talents with fresh faces, fresh routines, and that fresh pine scent. Upcoming comics include Basile, who has slain both live and TV audiences on MTV, Showtime, and A&E (May 11–15). Couples looking to laugh off the awkwardness of a first date can cash in on the gut-wrenchingly honest observations of Last Comic Standing finalist Chris Porter, who entrances audience members and tickles their giggleplexes with a feather made of alimony papers (May 18–22). The venue also plays host to a full-service bar, where patrons may steep their sorrows in calming brews, then ingest them triumphantly. Seating is first come, first served.
