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 see It’s the New Year … Now What?, presented by Darwin’s A-Team at High Desert Center for the Arts in Victorville. For $5, you get one general-admission ticket for Saturday, January 28, at 7:30 p.m. (a $10 value).
The scriptless, propless performers of improv troupe Darwin’s A-Team conjure absurd situations with nothing more than audience members' suggestions and their own imaginations. Characterized by surprising dialogue and a refusal to release laughing gas into the audience, the chuckle-hungry collective rings in 2012 with It’s the New Year … Now What?, its first performance of the year. The show takes place in the High Desert Center for the Arts, a recently refurbished theater whose chandeliers, plush seating, and coat-check room full of tiaras create an elegant atmosphere for refined rib-tickling.
