What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon Denver! For our inaugural deal, $7 gets you a ticket to the Impulse Theater, located at 1634 18th St.—that's 61% off a retail value of $18 worth of laughs. You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Denver: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (30 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires on 11/30/09). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Laughter is the elixir of the soul, and today's Groupon to side-splitting hilarity will have you drinking deep: $7 tickets to Impulse Theater's improvised comedy show (an $18 value), one of the longest running shows in Denver.
Impulse Theater's unique show builds hysterical scenes from audience suggestions. Each 90-minute performance features 10–12 brief scenes, each of which has its own set of rules (i.e. gibberish only, touch to talk, tame the snake, etc.) that Impulse's witty cast must follow or risk public humiliation by means of a vat of grape jelly. When these players bring their comedic A-games, you'll be rolling on the floor, yelling, "More please, these comedic A-games have me laughing in a way that I've never laughed before except maybe during that one episode of Friends with Ross and the monkey and a child-swing!"
Bring your friends, have a drink, and get ready to laugh until it's physically impossible for the laughter gland to produce more laughter. Impulse's one-drink minimum is a lot tastier when the tickets are 61% off, so reserve your tickets to a show that's completely new every time.
- I've attended around a half dozen Impulse Theater performances since I moved to Denver close to a year ago, and as a fan of live comedy and theater, it doesn't get much better than this blending of the two forms. – Brian M, Yelp
- My wife and I went to a show at a comedy club one night, and the Impulse theatre show the next. There was no comparison. The improvisation at the Impulse theatre was absolutely side-splitting. I have friends coming to town in a few weeks, and this will be our first stop. – bigjake73, Citysearch
- Every night is different and fun! The cast there is so witty and clever. There is no way I could do what they do night in and night out! – stellar, Citysearch
