Today’s no-nonsense society requires quick answers and fast thinking in order to become successful and eventually own a stable of expensive goats. See how the pros stay on top of the food chain with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two adult tickets or three student tickets to Friday-night improv shows at Brody Theater on Northwest Broadway (up to a $21 value). This Groupon is valid for 8 p.m. shows on Friday nights.
Brody Theater’s battle-tested improv artists throw themselves onstage and embrace unscripted chaos, creating hilarious shows for eager audiences. Friday's 8 p.m. slot is often occupied by "Micetro" or "Theatresports," both competitive improv-offs where observers offer suggestions to build the scenes from scratch. Sixteen improv gladiators stride in to "Micetro," which runs through March 25, but only one rises victorious after the audience votes their numbers down to a one-on-one joke duel. "Theatresports" splits performers into two teams who issue challenges to each other, using audience suggestions to out-funny their opponents. Unlike "Micetro," "Theatresports" is scored by Brody's judges, to whom the audience should direct boos and marriage proposals. Crowds can carbo-load their chuckle muscles with a selection of food and drinks, including wraps (starting at $6), beers (starting at $2.75), and wine (starting at $4).
More than 10 Yelpers give Brody Theater a four-star average:
- These guys are funny, their new space rocks, and you can't beat the price. – Grammar G., 2/1/09
- This troupe is fabulous, a rollicking good time for both the cerebral and the carnal. I came to get my mind off reality and was served both my own backyard and other-worldly adventures – Alyson G., 1/17/10
