Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for one, plus popcorn, to an improv comedy show (up to a $21 value) at Laugh Out Loud Theater at the Streets of Woodfield shopping center in Schaumburg.
Laugh Out Loud Theater sprays the suburban fringes of Chicago with a thick foam of world-class improv comedy. An extensive, experienced cast brings a highly interactive, audience-assisted experience to the intimate Schaumburg stage, drawing on hive mind suggestions to kick off its inevitably LOL-worthy sketches. On Fridays and Saturdays, families can provide the laugh track for the 7:30 p.m. show, which serves up healthy levels of consistent hilarity minus the inclusion of swearwords or adult situations such as applying for bank loans and replacing lost driver’s licenses. The 9:30 p.m. adult show is structured the same way, but performers will take audience suggestions that pave the way for hilarious onstage ribaldry guaranteed to knock the buckle-hat off your inner puritan. Both shows rely heavily on audience participation, and LOL’s indefatigable ad-libbers make it a point to invite willing audience members up on stage to help them achieve exponential levels of funny.
Laugh Out Loud Theater has a full kitchen and bar—and there is no drink minimum—so you can fill your gut beforehand until it easily busts with each new course in the night's improvised feast of tomfoolery. Well-suited for date nights, group outings, or a way-funnier-than-usual family bonding experience, Laugh Out Loud's improv comedy will inspire even the most non-spontaneous audience members to put down their cue cards and bust out a few jokes of their own.
