Zeus became known as the Greek god of improvisation after he came up with Athena off the top of his head. Make up mythological mirth with today's Groupon: for $5, you get one ticket to see Split 2nd Improv perform at Redmond's SecondStory Repertory (a $10 value). Shows are held Fridays and Saturdays from May 6 to 21 at 9 p.m.
Having tamed Redman's farmers'-market frontier with their patented brand of slapstickery, the script spurners of Split 2nd Improv now tend to hatching a twice-weekly staging of off-the-cuff comedy. Like snowflakes or facial tattoos, no two of the audience-directed shows are the same. Friday nights are rated PG-13, suitable for tickling family funny bones, and Saturdays paint the stage blue in adult humor. Track the ever-shifting feature players on Facebook, and bring your blank screenplay for them to autograph.
