Improv comedians are a human breed originally formed from the tears of a vaudevillian and the psychoactive film on a tree frog's back. Breed your own comedy with today's deal: for $8, you get one ticket to an interactive improv show at ComedySportz (a $16 value), located on Town and Country Boulevard. Call ahead to reserve a seat for an all-ages Friday or Saturday evening show, both of which begin promptly at 8 p.m.
Unlike elitist retirement homes, the ComedySportz arena welcomes guests of all ages to engage in family-friendly evenings devoid of forceful hard-candy consumption. Instead, two teams of professional chop-busters square off in a some-holds-barred refereed stage-match that is fueled by audience suggestions and judged by audience laughter levels. Through a series of games, songs, and scenes, the talented actors will interpret your creative shouts-outs and give the young ones a shot at scripted success with an audience-suggestion form.
With as much unpredictable comedic chaos as Y2K, audiences can party like it's 1999 with friends and family at ComedySportz. Clean comedy isn't just for animated kids movies and stand-up janitors, which is why the arena accommodates adults with a modest selection of beer and wine in addition to non-alcoholic thirst quenchers (no drink minimum required).
