Comedy Club Date Night

It's time to get you and your date laughing together! (something you may not have done since your engagement photos when the photographer suggested you laugh for the photo.....)


For this date, you'll be turning your home into a Comedy Club. So, let loose, laugh and be silly on this funny little date!

First, you'll need a catchy name:

Leah's Laugh Factory
Cher's Comedy Club
Jeanna's Joke House
Hailey's Ha Ha Cafe
...or whatever (just have a little sign with the Club Name on it as your date starts)

Then, you'll want to "pre-order' tickets and give your spouse their ticket early, since they'll be "meeting you there".
(Free Tiny Ticket Template Source)

Keep your "club" dimly lit (white Christmas lights help to create the effect) and always have upbeat music playing until Act 2. Be sure to serve up some good drinks and have a few appetizers on a tray.

It'll go down in Three Acts:

Act One: MadLibs.

You can find these comedic fill-in-the-blank books (with all sorts of themes) for cheap at any bookstore...



...or you can use a free online version HERE. (I tried them...and they're just as good...you've just got to sit around your computer).


Act Two: Stand-Up Comedian

Bring the comedian to you...courtesy of YouTube. Here are some great video favorites of ours...click each to take you to the video.

Hilarious Ventriloquist:

Hilarious Stand-Up Comedian:
Brian Regan - there are all sorts of clips from him.
*three of my fav sound clips about HERE and HERE and HERE

Of course, you can type in your favorite comedian's name in YouTube and you're sure to find a clip or two.


Act Three: Laffy Taffy

Enjoy some Laffy-Taffy candy together while taking turns reading your wrapper jokes.

Love this date! So perfect for those of us who can't easily get out of the house due to little babies at home! :)

What a cute idea, thank you so much, I am always looking for fun things to try and on a budget.

Polly Blevins said...

Great idea! I was a little disapointed before reading because I am not a comedian. I could never do a funny routine. Upon reading, I don't have to but it is still easy and free. Thanks!

This is really a wonderful idea. I'm going to do it with my husband.

Thanks!!! Adding it to my date night binder! :)

Also, I looked up synonyms for comedy, laugh, or joke that start with a B, and got buffoonery. How does Becca's Buffoonery Bistro sound? HA HA HA! Maybe I'll just stick with "Your Hottie's House of Hilarity." ;)

Cher said...

haha---love the buffonery, Becca!! Sounds like you ought to add a whoopie cushion and other funny gadgets to your date... :)

I LOVE this idea. The two of us, and our whole families, are REALLY into Brian Regan (he's got TWO shows on the "watch instantly" queue on Netflix right now!). I love MOST that this is ridiculously cheap (even WE can afford a small bag of Laffy Taffy from the Dollar Tree) and still a lot of fun. Exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks for the great idea...looks like the Fernandez Funny House will make a splash this weekend!

omaroma said...

(And yes, I know what a "funny house" is...that was not coincidental!)

Bethany said...

This is an awesome idea!! I love it. You come up with such creative ideas. No more boring old dinner and a movie!

This is perfect! I had been reading on blogs for years the importance of "date night" which we haven't had since before our three-year-old son was born (and not often before that). One of my resolutions is to institute a weekly "date night" at home after our son goes to sleep. One of our pre-marriage dates was at Yuk-Yuk's comedy club in Toronto during their live taping of their April Fool's Day show. This would be a great nostalgia date.
