"What do you want to do tonight?”

“I don’t know what do you want to do?”

I recently found an answer to this common question: Thirsty Thursday Comedy Nights at the State Theatre Center of the Arts. It’s an intimate affair that draws a crowd of no more than 200 people to the grand Acopian Ballroom located upstairs above the theater.

We caught last Thursday’s show, featuring comedians Rodney Laney and Jon Fisch. In all honesty, we had no idea what to expect.

Our typical comedy show experience usually consists of driving to a big city, over-paying for parking and tickets, and then being forced to order several over-priced menu items on top of that. So you can image our surprise and delight when we arrived at the State Theatre and found a parking spot right out front.

Inside, a friendly greeter thanked us for coming, both on our way in and our way out. At the bar, the price of a beer was $4, wine $5 and mixed drinks $6 and we didn't have to order to anything if we didn't want to.

As for the comedy, let’s just say we laughed our butts off for two hours straight. And now for the kicker, the price of tickets is only $15/person!

With a cash bar and New York City-caliber talent, it’s the perfect place to have a few drinks, a few laughs and gear up for the weekend in Lehigh Valley. But the shows only run through the end of October, so order your tickets soon!
