Let's recap your options for "free" dates.
You could picnic in a park (ants). You could take in an outdoor concert (ants). You could go camping (fire ants).
But this Friday night, you can escape the great outdoors while treating your sweetheart (or even the whole gang) to an amazing night at the Jokers Wild Comedy Show at House of Blues.
And you'll do it for free.
Yes, in a strange twist of capitalism sleeping on the job, Dallas comedian Chris Kazmarski has assembled a group of five comics (Corey Sutton, Usama Siddiquee, Vince Quick, Howard Goldthwaite, and Craig Coleman) to perform a show that's 100% gratis. There's not even one of those crazy ticket surcharges. No drink minimum, either.
Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so plan to show up early. There are even chances to win free drinks, which would mean an even more enjoyable zero-dollar experience.
Yet even with all this laughter and libation philanthropy, please don't forget to tip your waitress. It's karma.
