What You'll Get

There is truth in comedy, although the overwhelming majority of this truth comes from banana peel mishaps, practical jokes, and awkward interactions with a farsighted notary public. Hold a funhouse mirror up to reality with today’s Groupon: for $16, you get two general-admission tickets to Big City Improv at The Shelton Theater (up to a $40 value). Shows begin at 10 p.m. every Friday and tickets can be picked up from the box office starting at 9:30 p.m. on the night of the performance.

The cast of Big City Improv regularly graces the stage of the Shelton Theater with their extemporaneous brand of chuckle-eliciting witticisms. When they're not at the Shelton, these kooky laughbusters perform at other events such as the San Francisco Improv Fest as well as the San Francisco Theater Festival. Audience suggestions and participation jumpstart the performers’ nimble neurons as they embark on an impromptu examination of the human condition that leaves knees bruised, vocal cords strained, and ribs desensitized to the relatively subtle effects of tickling. Shows conclude by 11:30 p.m., ushering audiences out the doors before the clocks strike midnight and the stage turns into a woefully inedible pumpkin.

Though today’s Groupon is only valid for admission, the theater’s lobby does ply patrons with an array of alcoholic and placebo beverages, allowing guests to tote their libations within the theater itself. Big City Improv advises parents that shows may be inappropriate for children under the age of 16.
