This week our Happy Hour Hotline is combining two of life’s simple joys: alcohol and laughter. And what’s even better than drinks and comedy? Cheap drinks and comedy. After a long day at the office, one of the best ways to unwind is to get a little drunk and listen to really funny people. So venture outside your comfort zone and try these bars with comedy, they won’s disappoint. And don’t talk during a show, no matter how tipsy you get.
