What You'll Get
If laughter were a school supply, it would be an eraser, magically and instantly absolving all past and present regrets. Rub out unpleasantries with today's Groupon. For $15, you get two tickets to any weekend main-stage performance at Curious Comedy Theater (a $30 value). This Groupon is not valid for rental shows or performances on Friday March 25, Friday April 29, or Friday June 10. Reservations are encouraged.
In a courageous crusade to reverse of the advance of gloomery and doldrumage, the Curious Comedy Theater puts up hilarious sketch and improv comedy shows in an intimate, bistro-style performance space with a full bar. This non-profit theater was the first of its kind in Portland devoted exclusively to comedy, and the second of its kind to incorporate a 4-D ride experience. Though the schedule frequently rotates, current main-stage offerings include Unexpectations (March 26-April 23), a show in which Curious co-founder Stacey Hallal performs stage-borne shenanigans following an opening act of stand-up comedians or fellow Curious performers, Apocalypse Now and Later (April 30-June 4), a frolicsome expose into America's love affair with dollars and doll hairs, and the Curious Comedy Cover Show (June 24-July 30), featuring comedy covers from Charlie Chaplin, Bob Newhart, Mitch Hedberg, and more.
Curious co-founders Stacey Hallal and Bob Ladewig both received their comedy training in Chicago, which is to improvisation what Philadelphia is to cheesesteaks and Detroit is to dolphin-themed water stunt shows. Having trained with Second City and iO—world-famous comedy institutions known for alumni such as Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, and Steve Carell—Stacey and Bob, along with the theater's cast of performers, know how to elicit chuckles, chortles, and even seldom-heard cachinnations from Portlanders. The Curious Comedy Theater's canon of comic styles will find a way to tickle all sorts of funnybones, regardless of the amount of mirth-marrow contained therein. Make a reservation for a night at the theater that's actually meant to be funny.
