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 one ticket to any public show (an $18 value) at Madcap Theater in Westminster. This Groupon is not valid in December.
Madcap Theater plays host to comedy that is always unscripted, interactive, and appropriate for audiences of all ages. Inside the state-of-the-art theater—which is equipped with professional lighting, sound, and no less than 10 mummified court jesters (for good luck)—Madcap’s mirthful actors take the red-curtained stage to delight crowds of up to 155 people. Their brand of live, participatory improv is guided by the whims of the audience and its spontaneous thought projections. The sociable experience enables theatergoers to enjoy the company of old friends or meet new ones as laughs explode from everyone's lungs like dolphins from Old Faithful. As rear ends repose at comfortable tables near the raised stage, bellies get a double dose of exercise with delicious pretzels, cheeseburgers, and beers, which can be purchased from Madcap’s light menu.
Madcap Theater has secured Denver’s A-List Best Live Comedy prize for the past three years, an achievement most likely related to its appropriate-for-all-ages material, lack of a drink minimum, and collective nod of approval from every mayor in a 100-mile radius. The curtain rises on Thursdays at 7 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Call ahead to make your reservation.
Madcap Theater has received some great press, including a feature by Metrobeat magazine and a review from the Camera. The theater won Best Live Comedy in the area from 2007 to 2009 from CityVoters, and is a nominee again this year:
- Among the wildly amused are preteens with a parent, high-school kids, college-aged young adults, married couples, co-workers out for a beer after the work week is finished and a grandmotherly woman surely in her 70s. – Mark Collins, Camera
- How do they do it? They just keep coming up with hilarious stuff on the fly! – Don A., CityVoter
