Comedy Events 2019

We all love to laugh – it’s a basic human delight – and there are few more equipped to get a hearty laugh out of us than a comedian. Stand up comedy, or any comedy presentation for that matter is one of the most attended live performances in the western world. Comedians offer a more direct route to the ridiculousness of humanity than any other live show. They are relatable, honest (often brutally so), and critical in regards to all manners of life today. Yet, they choose jokes and whimsy as their means of social commentary.

Comedy shows got their start in the early 19th century. For decades, comedy had already expressed itself as a prominent theme in plays and musicals. Stand up got started as a way to humorously entertain in a wider range of venues.

Early comedians were fast-paced, slapstick, and outrageous. They performed in clubs, restaurants, and bars. Quickly, the newfound art of stand up rifted apart from the more elegant and cadenced stage dramas. With early big-names like Bob Hope, Joan Rivers, and Frank Fay, standup comedy became the high-demand event we know it to be today. Now, the best comedians are regarded as stars, often being featured in their own movies or television shows.

    1. How They Get Us to Laugh

      Comedic events generally involve a single performer who presents their act in front of a live audience. Some comedians take on a persona, like Rodney Dangerfield or Larry the Cable Guy, whereas the majority seek to merge their stage presence with their actual persona.

      With the illusion they are dialoguing, comedians monologue a long-form group of jokes, stories, and observations. Each comedian usually develops a style, and they’ll typically focus on one “shtick” that makes them stand out. They might use props, like puppets (Jeff Dunham), or they might incorporate music (Demetri Martin).

      Performances, depending on the comedian’s style, can range in crudeness, energy, and focused topic. Some comedians are very expressive and loud, while others are more quiet and deadpan. Nowadays, most successful acts are available on video, so you can discover your favorite comedians before seeing them live on stage.

      Buy Tickets to a Comedy Show

      Many of the world’s most creative funny people have taken to the stage to offer their delightfully gut-throbbing gift. Some comedians have become as famous as movie stars, some are actually movie stars, and others use standup as an aspiring hobby.

      Seeing the most well-known acts provide for more expensive ticket prices, whereas tickets to your local comedy club are usually cheap. Attending a smaller club is always a great option for those on a budget – you never know if you might catch a glimpse of any of the up-and-coming comedians.

      Comedy performing is a hard-fought art, and nearly all famous comedians got their start in small venues. The best way to get tickets to a comedy show is by visiting SeatRetriever. SeatRetriever offers tickets to your favorite events all in one place, for the best deals available.

      Choosing a Comedian to See Live on Stage

      Seeing a standup comedian offers a different experience than other live performances. Like other theater actors or band groups, comedians who perform on stage are well practiced and rehearsed. The best, though, make it feel as though they’re telling their jokes for the very first time.

      There is a vast range of comedians out there. If you get tickets to a smaller show, the performance will often reflect that. When you get tickets to see a more well-known comedian, like Jim Gaffigan, you’re going to receive a more polished presentation. Nonetheless, these events are greatly satisfying for comedy fans.

      Like any other stage performance, make sure to get your tickets early by checking SeatRetriever often. Luckily, most seats at a comedy show are sufficient for a great time. Since shows generally consist of one person on stage performing a monologue, having the best view can be a lower priority. Get to your show with your tickets in hand, nice and early.

      It’s also recommended audiences keep heckling to a minimum unless spurred on by the comedian. Heckling can interrupt performances and ruin the experience for you and others.

      The Comedy Experience

      Prepare to laugh till you can’t laugh anymore and get your tickets to a comedy show. Seeing a live comedian in their rawest state offers an experience that no television show or movie can replicate. Whether you’re attending a local club or a large theater to see comedians perform, be sure to get your tickets at SeatRetriever. Check early and often so you don’t miss out on witnessing the best funny-people up close and in person.
