Metaphors for laughter are often surprisingly violent, from busting a gut to splitting your sides to tumbling down the jagged face of Joke Mountain. Break a funny bone with this Groupon.

Improv Classes with Dave Thurston

Like a young pilgrim climbing a mountain to seek the wisdom of a wizened sage, Dave Thurston made a trek many years ago to the heart of improv comedy: Chicago. There, he studied with Second City, the Annoyance Theatre, and iO, and met such comedic greats as Tim Meadows, Martin Short, and Catherine O'Hara. Now, returned from this metaphorical mountaintop, Dave produces more than 250 shows a year at his network of Outliars Comedy Clubs, and shares his more than 14 years of experience with classes of hopeful improvisers.
