Like fresh air and sunshine, laughter is essential for a happy life, and it’s all but impossible to get too much of it. So if you don’t have enough laughter in your life, take a break from the bar scene and hit Flappers Comedy Club and Restaurant on your next night out with friends. No matter how seriously you and your mates take yourselves, you’ll laugh your heads off during an evening of stand-up, improv, and general craziness. Take your seats at a table close to the stage and see if any of the comics look familiar. Chances are you’ve caught at least a few of them on late-night talk shows, Comedy Central specials, and network sitcoms. Order a round of cocktails and dig in to your choice of “Moe’s Meatloaf,” garlic pasta, or chicken and portobello marsala. You’ll fill up on the tasty food long before you get your fill of the spot-on impressions and observational humor emanating from the stage. Pay close attention: many comics debut new material here to work on before recording big-time comedy specials. You might just be one of the first people to hear a joke that will someday be repeated around a million water coolers. And be warned, audience members are often called upon to participate. Play the straight man and give the comic all the attention, or try out your own comedy chops and steal the spotlight for yourself. Either way, you’ll have a great story to tell.
