Today's Groupon lets you indulge your love of audience participation in a way that doesn't get you banned from competing in the Olympics. For $5, you'll score one ticket to Jet City Improv at the Historic University Theater (a $10 value). This year's Best Live Comedy in Western Washington winner, Jet City Improv has three shows every weekend: Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. and most Saturdays at 8 p.m. Jet City's sense of humor is appropriate for all ages, so bring your entire Boy Scouts troop, unrecognized church group, or diamond-encrusted chain gang of wealthy dowagers.

For 90 minutes, Jet City's quick-witted, energy-packed cast will improvise scenes, games, musical numbers, and remarkably intricate Golden Girls fan fiction, all of which will be based on the suggestions of audience members. As such, no two Jet City Improv shows in its 17-year history have ever been alike.

Besides being a rock-solid first-date option, facilitating lots of shared laughter and "joke" marriage proposals, Jet City Improv also provides an excellent abdominal workout. The performance might even inspire less spontaneous souls to try ad-libbing for themselves, which would save them the hassle of using elaborate pre-written dialogue trees to engage in office chit-chat.


CityVoters named Jet City Improv Best Live Comedy in Western Washington in 2009. Citysearchers give it five stars, while Yelpers give it four:

Laughter is the best medicine, specifically knock-knock jokes. Here are some common ailments and the knock-knock joke that doctors use to treat it:

  • Depression: Knock, knock.
    Who’s there?
    Banana who?
    Orange you glad I didn’t mention your awful break-up with Louise?

  • Mild Amnesia: Knock, knock.
    Who’s there?
    It’s me, Doctor Thorndale.
    Who’s there?
    It’s me, Doctor Thorndale.
    Who’s there?
    Uh oh.

  • Hypothermia: Knock, knock?
    Who’s there?
    If you don’t warm up quick, you’ll die of hypothermia.
    If you don’t warm up quick, you’ll die of hypothermia who?
    You will. Better warm up quick.
