For $5, today's deal gets you two tickets to an improv show at Improv Comedy Underground (a $10 value). This Groupon will act as a ticket for two; present it at the doors for one of the following shows:
- At Spring Hill College's Arlene Mitchell Theatre on Saturday, March 5, at 8 p.m.
- At the Alabama School of Math and Science on Saturday, April 2, at 8 p.m.
- At the Crescent Theater on Saturday, May 7, at 11 p.m.
Every four to five weeks, Improv Comedy Underground puts on an unscripted, interactive show filled with spontaneous jokes and side-tickling chortles. Each show consists of a group of improvisational performers who participate in a series of wit-testing games led by a host and audience suggestions. Because of the on-the-fly nature of the hour-long shows, the content isn't always predictable and may contain adult language and humor, so it's not recommended for young children or stoic philosophers in the midst of vision quests.
- ICU generally eschews props in favor of wordplay, physical humor and surreal leaps of logic. It’s not skit comedy a la “Saturday Night Live,” but it’ll seem very familiar to anyone who’s enjoyed the show “Whose Line Is It Anyway.” – Lawrence F. Specker, AL.com
