Comedy has long been used to subvert the established order, shedding light on modern life’s pervasive absurdities and fomenting distrust of potentially seltzer-filled boutonnieres. Discover some rollicking truths with today’s GrouponLive deal to Avenue Theater. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get two general-admission tickets to see any performance of Scriprov (up to a $30 value). Shows run Fridays and Saturdays on March 2–10 at 7:30 p.m.
  • For $20, you get two general-admission tickets to Dave Shirley’s Rattlebrain on a Friday or Saturday from March 24–April 14. All shows are at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $40 value). <p>

Scriprov sends two venerable comedic traditions colliding together in shows that catch the cast off guard as much as the audience. In each vignette, a cadre of actors runs straight through a scene before substituting one of their own with an improviser who hasn’t seen the script, forcing the new arrival to hold his or her own with spur-of-the-moment dialogue and the constantly repeated mantra that this is not just a terrifying dream. Denver-based Dishwater Blondes supplies the evening’s ad-libbers while a collection of Avenue-affiliated actors play the scenes’ straight men. Conceived by erstwhile street performer Dave Shirley, Rattlebrain has been characterized as “ridiculous, inventive and yet oddly old-school fun” by the Denver Post. Combining the veteran funnyman’s myriad oddball talents, the show segues effortlessly from shadow puppetry to juggling to deliberately awkward bits of music and ventriloquism.

Though Avenue Theater features discounts for students and seniors, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
