What You'll Get
This Groupon gets you a ticket to laugh at ComedySportz, Houston’s longest-running improv show. ComedySportz’s troupe of all-star laughletes are widely considered to be not only comedic but also to have good sportsmanship, since there’s no swearing and the subject matter is suited for all ages. This Groupon gets you a $16 ticket to any evening show for $8, the same price you would pay if you were attending a matinee but much funnier, because jokes work better at night.
Take a friend, relative, significant other, or the relative of a friend’s significant other to see two teams of ComedySportz improvisers fight for laughs through scenes, games, and songs based on audience suggestions. Improv is fun to watch not only because the sounds of laughter (polite chuckles, inside-out hiccoughing, booming, window-busting guffaws, funnyrumbles, and whoops) have been known to cure the surliest lassitude but also because it’s so imaginative and interactive.
You never know what’s going to happen next in an improv show. No two shows are ever the same, and watching a group of people think on their toes (a typical improv troupe has seven to 94 toes) is better than losing to children at Scrabble. ComedySportz serves beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks. Shows take place Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and last about an hour and 40 minutes; call in advance to make a reservation.
Citysearchers give ComedySportz a perfect five-star rating:

The Right Jokes for the Right Disease
Laughter is the best medicine, specifically laughter caused by knock-knock jokes. Here are some common ailments and the knock-knock joke that doctors use to treat it:
Depression: Knock, knock.
Orange you glad I didn’t mention your awful break-up with Louise?
Mild Amnesia: Knock, knock.
It’s me, Doctor Thorndale.
It’s me, Doctor Thorndale.
Hypothermia: Knock, knock?
If you don’t warm up quick, you’ll die of hypothermia.
If you don’t warm up quick, you’ll die of hypothermia who?
You will. Better warm up quick.
