What You'll Get
Although he could barely write a line of metered verse, Shakespeare made up for his lyrical deficiencies by secretly tape-recording improv events and rephrasing the dialogue to fit his favorite smooth-jazz beats. Capitalize on comic brilliance with today’s Groupon to the Charlotte Comedy Theater at The Comedy Zone located at NC Music Factory. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get two tickets to a Charlotte Comedy Theater Sunday-night improv show (up to a $20 value). Shows start July 31, with a family-friendly show at 5 p.m. and CCT’s Sizzlin’ Sunday Show at 7 p.m.
• For $125, you get an eight-week session of improv classes (a $200 value). The next session starts Sunday, July 24, with classes from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Charlotte Comedy Theater’s high-energy cast splits sides with bolts of laughter in a back-to-back pairing of Sunday shows, while also offering improv classes taught by rib-tickling veterans. Assembled nearly a decade ago by stage-hardened Chicago comic Keli Semelsberger, the performance team engages audiences in interactive shows that eschew scripted jokes for happy accidents. A family-friendly show in the early evening enlists the assistance of children and grandparents alike, crafting whimsical scenarios as clean and positive as fresh-scrubbed protons. Although its format varies weekly, the R-rated Sizzlin’ Sunday Show consistently delivers a new batch of hilarity cooked up by the troupe’s most experienced performers.
Students stretch their own funny bones during laid-back afternoon classes that focus on team-building, improvised character development, and resuscitation procedures for laughing fits. Led by proven giggle-generators Keli Semelsberger, Drea Leonetti, and Gary Leake, Charlotte Comedy Theater's classes can place future comics on the path to headlining a sold-out show at the 400-seat venue or help a U.S. senator overcome their public speaking fears in time to emcee WrestleMania 28.
