The show itself was great! But I went with a date. Just me and him ended up having to share a tiny table with another couple which was kind of a buzz kill. Also, there is a 2 item minimum per person or you will get a 12 dollar fee per person added to your “bill” so, overall. Great deal for the tickets, but expect to pay at least 30+ if you plan on going with a date. Better to just go with a group.

About This Deal

Improv was first developed by the ancient Romans, who judged criminals innocent or guilty based on whether or not they could make a marble statue of Julius Caesar laugh. Enjoy an old-fashioned improvised performance without any of the death sentences with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two general-admission tickets (up to a $40 value) at San Jose Improv, located near San Jose State University. This Groupon is not valid for Saturday shows or special events. A two-item minimum purchase (food or drink) applies to all shows and is not included in the value of this Groupon.

San Jose Improv, part of a national network of chuckle clubs, features an ever-changing lineup of jesters and laugh inducers on its stage. Today’s deal gets fans of funny two trips to improvised hilarity: enjoy the Improv stand-up comedy competitions on select Tuesday nights at 8 p.m., or save your tickets for shows featuring Doug Benson (a $20 per-ticket value), Todd Glass, who competed in two seasons of Last Comic Standing (a $10 per-ticket value), or the multilingually amusing Sugar Sammy, who was recently named one of the top-10 rising comedians by the Hollywood Reporter (up to a $17 per-ticket value). If all the mirth makes your mouth unmoist, water it with a drink from San Jose Improv’s bar, which is loaded with premium liquors, beers, and California wines.

The original Improv was founded in New York in 1963, when laughter was first invented, and since then the club has spread all over the country like frosting. Call ahead to reserve a show and fill your empty soul with side-splitting happiness during the rowdy railleries at San Jose Improv.

18 and over only. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Must call 72 hours in advance to reserve show.
