Mark Twain once observed, "Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand," which is why timber barons routinely shout knock-knock jokes at giant sequoias. Topple boredom with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to a Saturday late-night comedy show (a $20 value) and an appetizer (a $13 value) at Visani Restaurant & The Comedy Zone in Port Charlotte (a $33 total value).
Visani Restaurant & The Comedy Zone set the stage for comedians from throughout the United States to fill the rows with uproarious laughter every Saturday night. Guests can munch on an appetizer platter of mini meatballs, fried mozzarella, and bruschetta before a main course of hard-boiled comedy is served at 10 p.m., which leaves ample time to warm up guffaws throughout the day. Upcoming acts include Tony Tone, an impressionist who has appeared on HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Cedric the Entertainer's DVD The Starting Line Up 1, and James Sibley, an observational comedian who has appeared on My Name Is Earl. Unlike an elitist ATM, the 200-seat theater operates on a first-come, first-served basis, so reservations are recommended.
