Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon to The Basement Theatre. Choose between two options:
- For $87, you get a six-week Improv I class (a $175 value).
- For $14, you get a two-ticket concession package, which includes two tickets to a show ($10 each for adults, $5 each for students) and a $10 credit toward snacks, drinks, or an additional ticket (up to a $30 value).
The Basement Theatre brings improvised comedy to Atlanta via weekly comedy shows and a full-scale training center. Embrace the art of ad-libbed comedy with the two-ticket concession package, containing two tickets to any of the theater's nonfundraising and nonfestival shows. It also includes a $10 credit toward concession-stand treats, such as sweet-tooth-satisfying candy ($1), tonsil-salting popcorn ($2), and taste-bud-slicking soda and water ($1) or alcohol ($4). The $10 credit can also be used toward an extra ticket, ideal for couples wishing to bring along the PhD student studying them.
For those who'd rather do than watch, The Basement Theatre also serves up the six-week Improv I class. Learn the skills of spontaneity through scene work, character development, warm-ups, and group exercises. Class sizes usually max out at 10 students, allowing lots of personal attention from the instructor. The six-week class ends with a graduation performance, allowing students to show off their newfound talents to friends both real and imaginary.
