The quick-witted locals at Capitol City Theater send crowds home with happily busted guts and slapped knees after all-ages improv-comedy shows. For 90 minutes, a cast of 4–10 performers takes the stage to play a series of performance games that inspire fast-paced vignettes aimed at activating funny bones and accidentally toning oblique muscles. Audiences shout out suggestions for every game to challenge comedians to find the light-hearted side of topics such as dental work, a subject whose humorousness was previously apparent exclusively to manufacturers of nitrous oxide.
Though not included in today's deal, Capitol City offers a selection of dessert on its menu, ideal for ingesting midperformance or lobbing at cell-phone users who take calls during a scene. The theater group stays connected to global causes by donating a percentage of its profits to clean water projects in Africa.
