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 $12, you get two tickets to a Friday or Saturday evening improv show (up to a $24 value) at the Loose Moose Theatre Company, located on the second floor of the Crossroads Market on 26th Avenue. This offer is not valid for special events or main-stage shows.
The Loose Moose Theatre Company has been performing innovative improvisational theatre for Calgary audiences for more than 30 years. Grab a date or cunningly dressed con-date and enjoy a Friday evening performance of Micetro Impro, during which performers are randomly selected to act out improvised scenes and the audience awards the actors points, eliminating low-scorers with the ruthlessness of a cranky mafia kingpin. Theatresports, which was created by Loose Moose co-founder Keith Johnstone, encompasses competitive improvised comedy with improv teams pitted against each other in a battle won only with snorts and hysterical audience-member shrieks. Check out Loose Moose Theatre's schedule for a complete list of upcoming shows.
Laughing can have many health benefits, such as improving circulation, strengthening cardiovascular functions, reducing stress hormones, and freaking out birds. In addition to catalyzing laughter among audience members, the internationally recognized institution is also home to an improv school for those who want to improve their ability to make mysterious strangers laugh.
