What You'll Get
At an improv show, not even clairvoyant mystics or current fashion experts know what's coming next. Enjoy a predictably sporadic evening of collaborative comedy with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets (a $30 value) to your choice of a Friday- or Saturday-night show at Go! Comedy Improv Theater.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated that flowers are the earth laughing at a tastefully improvised flatulence joke, though Go! Comedy prefers higher-brow forms, converting bodily functions to complex metaphors for life and love. Stop by Friday or Saturday at 8 p.m. for the Best Damn Holiday Show, Go! Comedy's annual holiday revue. After the holidays, live out a theatrical fantasy on Friday night at 11:30 p.m. when you shout out a suggestive title at the on-the-fly musical, Rock-O-Matic. Any suggestion will do; scream for a performance of Whittler on the Roof, Guys and Barbie Dolls, or Homeschool Musical (no "Freebird"). Stop in Friday or Saturday night at 10 p.m. for All-Star Showdown, an interactive game show that takes audience suggestions as actors move through a series of improv games and challenges.
With five weekend showtimes from which to choose, impromptu improv outings can easily nestle inside the Russian doll that is a busy schedule. Gather up a crowd of formerly taunted teens and laugh with them, not at them, or bring a date for a chance to shamelessly yell taboo words in public without the awkward accosting. All shows feature a full bar to loosen up the spasmodic laughter reflexes.
- Laughs are one commodity this battered Rust Belt community is always in need of, and Go! Comedy is all too willing to tickle what's left of your weary funny bone. A formerly grimly utilitarian Secretary of State office in Ferndale has morphed into a jubilant home base for Detroit's scattered improv comedy tribes, with all the off-the-cuff humor one could ever dream of. – Metro Times
- Those characters at GO! Comedy in Ferndale are really good, or maybe some of you just need to get out more. For the second year in a row, the funny fashionistas on 9 Mile have been selected by a discerning readership as the best troupe in town when it comes to Thalia’s temper tantrums. – Real Detroit Weekly
