Keep your face fresh and young, spread happy vibes, boost your immune system, and sharpen your memory smarts with today’s Groupon. For $5, you’ll get a ticket to a Seattle Theatresports show at Unexpected Productions, the city’s longest-running improv performance (a $10 value).

Theatresports is the Iron Chef of humor, the Ace of Cakes of jokes, and the Hell's Kitchen of laughter and not cooking. After the audience shouts out the evening’s secret ingredients, the improv chefs get to work, cooking up a comedic concoction that’s equal parts sports, theater, improv, and quick wit. Focusing on story, narrative, and technical game-playing, the all-ages improv show has been entertaining audiences since its inception 25 years ago. From suggesting ideas to booing the judges, the program is entirely interactive, perfect for those who nod off during less audience-involved entertainment options, such as movies or plays or that daydream where you aren't always worried what other people think.

The family-friendly gigglefest is original and funny every time, with no drink or age minimum. It’s also a pink feather boa– and tiara-free alternative to a bachelorette party or a Spider-Man comics- and dressing-up-as-your-favorite-president-free alternative to a bachelor party. Your Groupon is good for a show on any Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. (except holidays) in the Market Theater at Pike Place Market.

Printable List of Improv Suggestions

At the beginning of each improv show, the performers ask the audience for a suggestion. This frequently results in 10 to 20 minutes of awkward silence, followed by the performers leaving the stage until an hour of silence passes and a bold audience member finally speaks up with the brilliantly conceived suggestion fart, but his genius call rings coldly across the quiet stage, too tardy to be hilariously interpreted by the cast.
