Comedy Night for One or Two to Joe Masse & The Degenerates on January 29 at 12:30 a.m. (Up to 66% Off)

The perception of what’s funny varies among cultures, much like traffic laws and the legal age to buy whoopee cushions. Embrace cultural differences with today’s GrouponLive deal to see Joe Masse & The Degenerates at Carolines on Broadway on Sunday, January 29, at 12:30 a.m. All seating is general admission. Carolines on Broadway has a two-drink minimum, which is not included with this Groupon. Choose between the following options:

  • For $9, you get one ticket (a $22 value).
  • For $15, you get two tickets (a $44 value).

In a late-night, recurring show at esteemed comedy club Carolines on Broadway, The Degenerates unearth jokes too edgy for broad daylight, instead allowing them to flourish in the illicit midnight hour. This motley crew of up-and-coming comedians bursts polite society’s bubble under the irresponsible watch of host and producer Joe Masse. Once called too good-looking for comedy and too cool for a career as a hot-glass blower, Masse slays taboos about obesity, poverty, and gender roles. Joining him to parachute punch lines into ears’ landing zones are fellow Degenerates Josh Spear, whose conversational style skewers urban life and pop culture, and Indian comic Anu Kalra, known for his unconventional riffs on the Indian-American experience. Dan Frigolette spits observational humor with a mouth that’s filthier than a mud sculpture of Sam Kinison, and Kyle Fincham rounds out the lineup with a precise, energetic style.

The stage at Carolines on Broadway has padded the celebrated paws of cackle monsters such as Jerry Seinfeld, Joel McHale from The Soup, and Tracy Morgan. In 2012, the club toasts its 30th birthday with ongoing hilarity and rambling calls to old college girlfriends.

In The Mood for a Good Comedy Show?

Gotham Comedy Club
208 W. 23rd St., Chelsea, Manhattan
At Gotham Comedy Club, native New Yorkers Chris Mazzilli and Michael Reisman bring the dignified air of an old-world supper club to the modern stand-up comedy scene. While the elegant theater is unusually cushy, once the comedians take the stage, you’ll realize that humor is truly Gotham’s main attraction. Comics range from up-and-coming talents to top headliners such as Lewis Black, Dane Cook and Dave Chappelle.

Dangerfield’s Comedy Club 
1118 First Ave., Upper East Side, Manhattan
Before Rodney Dangerfield left this world for the big comedy stage in the sky (RIP), he started this venue, which has been called the number-one comedy club in America. Such A-listers as Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Allen have all performed on the hallowed Dangerfield’s stage, and new talent emerges nightly. Dangerfield’s is also available for private parties.

Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre
307 W. 26th St., Chelsea, Manhattan
The premiere home of offbeat, creative improvisational and sketch comedy in New York City presents more than 25 shows a week, with ticket prices always under $10 and reasonably priced drinks to keep the good cheer flowing. There is never a dull moment at this theater, where unknowns and up-and-comers regularly share the stage with famous comedians like Parks and Recreation’s Amy Poehler, Robin Williams and Conan O’Brien.

123 E. 24th St., Gramercy, Manhattan
This comedy haven (an acronym for “Peoples Improv Theater”) is a great place for revelers to watch some of the City’s finest comedians-in-training, and for people with stage fright to take improv and sketch classes. Offerings include “Writing for The Colbert Report,” “How to Pitch and Sell TV Shows,” and “You’re Funny. Now What?”, and some instructors are veterans of Saturday Night Live and The State. The theater also offers special courses for teens and kids.

Comedy Cellar  
117 MacDougal St., West Village, Manhattan

You never know who’s going to pop up on stage at this subterranean comedy mecca: Ray Romano, Colin Quinn, Robin Williams, Jon Lovitz. All of the aforementioned have graced the Comedy Cellar with their live sets recently, spewing from a stage the size of a dining-room table in front of a crowd packed together tighter than sardines on a Ritz.

The Creek 
10-93 Jackson Ave., Long Island City, Queens
There’s always some sort of party going on at this Long Island City hotspot: on Thursdays, you’ll find free music in the lounge; on weeknights, there’s a two-for-one margarita happy hour; and during the summer, the outdoor beer garden is jumping with sweaty patrons all day long. The Creek is also home to free comedy shows in the theater, plus a kitchen serving up Baja-style Mexican food, including “big dog” burritos, which are large enough to feed more than one frat brother.

Underground Lounge 
955 West End Ave., Upper West Side, Manhattan
This lounge is a hit with Upper West Side residents, and it’s easy to see why. The stylishly renovated space has everything you’d want for a relaxing night out—a pool table, live music and comedy, and drinks that won’t break the bank. Find a comfortable spot on a sofa, order your cocktail of choice and strike up a conversation under the low lights.

National Comedy Theatre 
347 W. 36th St., Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan 
National Comedy Theatre’s popular comedy shows—a fast-paced competition between two teams of professional comedians who perform a series of hysterical scenes based on audience suggestions—are performed nightly in its 36th Street theater. The venue has also expanded into team-building workshops, improv comedy training, high-school improv leagues, corporate entertainment and events, and convention and trade show entertainment.

Magnet Theater
254 W. 29th St., Chelsea, Manhattan
Founded in 2005 by a group of Chicago comedy lovers led by Second City (and, as it happens, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and Peoples Improv Theater) alum Armando Diaz, this improv outpost offers both classes and shows, meaning that you can either try to be the next Amy Poehler or Will Arnett, or you can try to discover the next Amy Poehler or Will Arnett. Classes are open to everyone. On the weekends, beer-soaked crowds hit the theater to guffaw.

Stand-Up NY Comedy Club
236 W. 78th St., Upper West Side, Manhattan
This handsomely appointed venue offers top-notch stand-up from comedy’s brightest stars seven nights a week; with room for only 175, there’s not a bad seat in the house. For as little as $10, catch an impressive roster of funny folks who have delivered laughs on Late Show with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live and Comedy Central Presents (to name just a few). Drop-ins have included comedy veterans Robin Williams, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld.

The World-Famous Comic Strip Live
1568 Second Ave., Upper East Side, Manhattan

Since 1975, this renowned stand-up comedy club has played host to some of the best comedians in the City and has even helped launch the careers of many (think Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock). The walls that flank the entranceway are jam-packed with autographed photos of some of the club’s most recognizable former and current performers, giving the space the feel of a comedy hall of fame. Grab a drink at the tiny bar outside the main room for a chance to chat it up with the talent as they enter and exit, and be sure to reserve your ticket before the show to guarantee yourself a seat.

Carolines on Broadway
1626 Broadway, Times Square, Manhattan
A veritable comedy institution, Carolines has been keeping New York laughing since 1981. The comic talent ranges from the soon-to-be-famous (stars such as Jay Leno and Rosie O’Donnell started here in the ’80s) to current favorites, like Colin Quinn, Susie Essman and Damon Wayans. And don’t fret if your upcoming social calendar is booked; Carolines hosts shows seven days a week, 365 days a year.
