Unlike divorce trials and nude tightrope walks, improv comedy shows encourage their audience members to giggle at increasingly awkward situations. Emit roars of laughter with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two improv theater tickets (a $20 value) and one popcorn (a $1 value) at Made Up Theatre in Fremont (a $21 total value). Due to potentially sensitive content, you must be 16 years of age or older to purchase and use this Groupon.
Made Up Theatre’s inspired improvisers spontaneously stage scenes of satire and slapstick in comedy shows every Saturday night. The Laugh Track City ensemble crams scads of short pieces into each 90-minute performance, whipping Whose Line Is It Anyway? –style games and audience suggestions into a laughter-flavored soufflé slathered in applause-flavored icing. Meanwhile, the Five Play Improv cast weaves surprising, 30 to 45-minute-long stories together with the ease of a superhero with a glue gun. The Showcase features a new twist that changes with every performance, including a fully improvised Shakespearean play, musical comedy, or live reenactment of the Battle of Bull Run. Regardless of the show you see, enjoying gargantuan guffaws in the company’s intimate theater will make for a happy date night and offer a simpler path to smiles than throwing pies at unsuspecting barristers. An included popcorn ensures that stomachs remain as satiated as funny bones.
