What You'll Get
Zeus became known as the Greek god of improvisation after he came up with Athena off the top of his head. Make up mythological mirth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two to a 7:30 p.m. show on Friday or Saturday nights (up to a $24 value) at Capitol City Theater, located on the second floor of the historic Reed Opera House.
The quick-witted locals at Capitol City Theater send crowds home with happily busted guts and slapped knees after all-ages improv-comedy shows. For 90 minutes, a cast of 4–10 performers takes the stage to play a series of performance games that inspire fast-paced vignettes aimed at activating funny bones and accidentally toning oblique muscles. Audiences shout out suggestions for every game to challenge comedians to find the light-hearted side of topics such as dental work, a subject whose humorousness was previously apparent exclusively to manufacturers of nitrous oxide.
Though not included in today's deal, Capitol City offers a selection of dessert on its menu, ideal for ingesting midperformance or lobbing at cell-phone users who take calls during a scene. The theater group stays connected to global causes by donating a percentage of its profits to clean water projects in Africa.
