Improvised comedy remains one of America's most popular impromptu forms of entertainment, having proven itself significantly safer than its close cousin, improvised pyrotechnics. Enjoy some safe spontaneity with today's Groupon: for $16, you get two tickets to Biography—Life as a Comedy (a $32 value) at Bovine Metropolis Theater in downtown Denver. The all-ages show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., September 17–November 13. This Groupon also gets you a free appetizer around the corner at PrimeBar on Arapahoe Street with the purchase of two drinks (limit 1 appetizer per table).
Biography—Life as a Comedy mixes interview with improv to give audiences a one-of-a-kind comedic experience. Like an enchanted truck driver, host and Bovine Metropolis co-founder Eric Farone will take a different special guest—a mother, a restaurateur, or some other Denver-area denizen—down a busy eight-lane memory highway for each of the show's 18 performances, stopping along the way to examine various life experiences. As each guest discusses the events of his or her life, the show's cast will build on the stories to create hilarious ad-libbed scenes and other comedic spin-offs designed to tickle funny bones and massage humor nodes. The improvised action will include poetry, live music, and dance—all forged from the same sort of on-the-spot creative ingenuity that gave mankind such hilarious inventions as the Koosh ball and the daddy longlegs spider. After the show, head down the street to receive a free appetizer with the purchase of two beverages at PrimeBar. PrimeBar is a contemporary ale house that's accented with plenty of leather booths and plasma TVs for post-show show-watching.
Residing in the heart of the Denver Theatre District, Bovine Metropolis Theater has been inciting citywide laugh riots and stampedes of wild giggles for a decade. Invite along your conjoined twin and spend an evening blissfully slapping each other's knee with today's Groupon to Biography—Life as a Comedy.
