National Comedy Theater
Premeditated comedy is the same thing as premeditated crime—both would be more hilarious if spontaneous. Seat yourself before a scene of utter unpredictability with today's delightfully inconsistent deal: for $9, you get one ticket to an improv show at Manhattan's National Comedy Theatre (a $15 value), plus free popcorn (a $2 value) to satisfy your late-night, comedy-induced cravings. Watch as NCT's talented players face off in a hilarious improvised competition at 9:45 p.m. on Friday or Saturday nights. NCT's show is completely different every time and funny for all ages, so grab your 2.5 children and 8.7 grandnieces. You haven't had a family laugh this good since that time the dog fell down the stairs and was basically fine.
