Taking a date to a comedy club is always a risky move. You could get stuck sitting in front, where the comic can call you out and trap you in some twisted form of couples therapy, and your only food options are usually chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks.

Take a vegan who’ll appreciate the comedian-owner dropping in to do a very plant-based standup routine about his meat-loving family.
