Improv comedy shows, unlike criminal-court proceedings and open-heart surgeries, encourage people in the room to shout out suggestions.

Scared Scriptless—one of Alaska’s longest-running improv troupes—consists of deft performers who tickle audience funny bones via twice-monthly shows. Cast members solicit suggestions from onlookers at the beginning of each show, then they construct scenes with more biting one-liners and droll observations than Oscar Wilde’s marriage proposals. Each 90-minute show takes place at the Snow Goose Restaurant and Sleeping Lady Brewing Company, where inclined improv fans can sip craft brews and chew on hearty sandwiches or reindeer-stuffed mushrooms (not included with this Groupon).
