What You'll Get
Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon for ComedySportz, San Jose's longest-running improv show. For $7, you get one ticket to just about any evening show (a $15 value); see below for exclusions. Shows take place Fridays at 9 p.m. and Saturdays at 7 and 9 p.m. and last about an hour and 40 minutes.
ComedySportz’s troupe of all-star laughletes is considered to be not only comedic, but also to have good sportsmanship, since there’s no swearing allowed and the subject matter is suited for all ages. Take a friend, relative, significant other, or the relative of a friend’s significant other to see two teams of expert 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, window-busting guffaws, funnyrumbles, and whoops) have been known to cure the surliest lassitude, but also because it’s so imaginative and interactive. 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. Call in advance to make a reservation.
This Groupon is not available for The Midnight Show at 11 p.m. on Fridays or any fundraising events; valid for the ComedySportz shows only.
