What You'll Get
Jesters were usually the wisest members of royal courts, due to the extra brains stored in their three-pronged hats. Let a modern jokester share some of his brains with you with today's Groupon to ComedyWorx. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get two adult tickets to any Friday or Saturday show (up to a $24 value). These tickets can be used for the following shows:
- The ComedyWorx Show at 8 p.m.
- The Larry Show at 10 p.m.
- For $12, you get a family pass for two adults and two children to any Saturday The ComedyWorx Show matinee at 4 p.m. (a $24 value).
ComedyWorx entertains audiences of all ages with competitive and party-formatted improvisation shows. The ComedyWorx Show pits two teams, garbed in red and blue pajamas, against each other in rounds of skits and games based on audience suggestions and the tilt of the earth's axis that day. At the end of each round, the referee selects a spectator to judge the team's winner by measuring audience laugh levels, earning the victor points on a glowing scoreboard. As music plays between rounds, waiting teams—named for local university mascots and institutions—huddle in color-coordinated dugouts on stage. Referees also call brown-bag fouls on saucy suggestions from audience members or excessive product placement from players, forcing offenders to wear a bag over their heads for the show's duration.
Late-night revelers eschew content restrictions at The Larry Show, where a show host leads eight or nine performers through risqué games and mature content, some of which can't be performed at earlier shows. Before the curtain rises, actors draw chosen audience members backstage for a surprise enlisting to participate, granting onstage experience without the fire-juggling requirements of acting contracts. Performing on the theater's blank stage, actors volley verbal ammunition without fear of a brown-bag foul. Performers harvest chuckles comfortably in street clothes and, like their ComedyWorx Show counterparts, may employ props for their scenes. Attendees lounge at general-seating tables while sipping pours or contemplating concessions and the origins of maraschino cherries from the venue's bar (not included in this deal).
