He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon to The Off Broadway Theatre downtown. Choose between the following options:
• For $11, you get two tickets to any Laughing Stock improv-comedy show on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. (when other plays are not scheduled) or 10 p.m. (up to a $22 value).
• For $16, you get two tickets to see Kung Fooey: A Spaghetti Western (up to a $32 value), valid for either Friday, July 8 or Saturday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The Off Broadway Theatre brings to life a spaghetti Western parody and unpredictable improv shows on its lively stage, entertaining patrons with a family-friendly choice of comedic performances. A farcical yarn, Kung Fooey explores the love story between an outsider and the woman he loves, highlighting his fight to save her father's gold mine through a series of flashbacks and frantic under-the-table dealings with dubious leprechauns.
One of Utah's longest running improv shows, Laughing Stock hurls its unscripted funniness at audience members, taking suggestions from them before spinning out extemporaneous bits, sketches, and State of the Union addresses. Call ahead to reserve tickets for sidesplitting theater, which is always better than pants-splitting theater.
The Off Broadway Theatre
The name doesn't lie—located in Salt Lake City, The Off Broadway Theatre is about as far from The Great White Way as you can get. But geography hasn't stopped the space from staging New York-caliber classic musicals and original comedies for nearly 20 years. The auditorium rings with laughter during beloved productions such as Little Shop of Horrors and The Pirates of Penzance, and house-written parodies including The Adventures of Sheer-Luck Homes and Snotson , The X-Mas Men, and Dracula vs. any number of monsters once portrayed by Boris Karloff. Audience members get the chance to join in on the hilarity during interactive sets from the resident jokesters of the Laughing Stock Comedy Troupe.
