Although it’s been ostracized by the five traditional senses, the sense of humor is the only thing that enables human beings to detect a rubber chicken creeping up from behind. Stay on guard with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to any weekend main-stage performance at Curious Comedy Theater (a $30 value).
Curious Comedy Theater tweaks the comedy-club formula with inventive improvisation, sketch, and multidisciplinary merrymaking, wiping smiles onto the faces of comedy fans in an intimate performance space with a full bar. Headed up by Stacey Hallal, the players tote their skills to Curious Comedy Theater from diverse theater, standup, and arts scenes. Stacey Hallal's winning charm, malleable mug, and enormous collection of Fabergé eggs fill the stage in Irregardless, a one-woman tour de farce stuffed with songs, stories, and stinging observations about relationships and social mores (January 27–February 18). In Fit to Print, comedic gurus create a show with borrowed news headlines from audience members and nearby newscasting penguins (March 3–31).
