The Deal

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

The Harold

When the lights flick on and the comedians take the stage, the Harold doesn't ask the audience to hush. Quite the opposite, actually. Instead, the crowd shouts out suggestions that a team of improvisers spends the rest of the evening weaving into scenes and games. They create motives and characters, and twist those into a story that becomes a comprehensive whole.

The Armando Diaz Experience

Frequently joined by guests from MADtv, Saturday Night Live, and Conan, The Armando Diaz Experience capitalizes on real life. Based on the tenets of long-form improv, the show begins with a monologist spinning a personal yarn. A troupe of seasoned comedians and iO Theater veterans, meanwhile, set to work acting out the embarrassing memories and bringing autobiographical tidbits to life without transforming a diary into a Frankenstein monster.

iO Theater

Having spawned hordes of comic luminaries in the last 30 years, including Mike Myers, Chris Farley, and Tina Fey, the revered iO Theater curates one-of-a-kind evenings of improv every night. Two spacious theaters host shows where everything from classic long-form improv and family-friendly fare to musical improv and improvised Shakespeare launch audiences into imaginative stories. A full-service bar in each theater allows audiences to hone spit-takes when sipping sudsy drafts and cocktails.
