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 $9, you get two general-admission tickets to an Oxymorons Improv show at Appalachian Brewing Company on Sunday, November 13, at 7 p.m. (a $20 value).
Oxymorons Improv, a troupe of comedic actors from the central Pennsylvania area, elicit laughs during improvised games where the players cook up stories and characters on the spot. After the self-proclaimed Morons have ceremoniously shredded their scripts in an onstage woodchipper, they begin a 60- to 90-minute performance similar in content to an episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway? The amusing situations are conjured using suggestions pulled from the audience, who often get to participate, and the flap of a sentient whoopee cushion. The show will take place in the Appalachian Brewing Company, a historic brewpub that surrounds spectators with high ceilings and antique brick walls. While waiting for the show to begin, attendees can use the sleek surface of the long wooden bar for impromptu games of Spin the Craft Beer. Although not included with this Groupon, the brewery also boasts an extensive menu stocked with flavorful libations and hearty pub fare such as a beer-braised pulled-pork sandwich lathered in root-beer barbecue sauce ($8).
