Laughter is one sign of a healthy soul, which is why the most hilarious party guests usually turn out to be ghosts. Capture blithe spirits with today's Groupon: for $12, you get admission for two to Secret City Comics Society in Fullerton (up to a $24 value). Shows run on Friday nights at 8 p.m. and Saturday nights at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
Helmed by creative director and former National Comedy Theatre instructor Alan Ng, Secret City Comics Society’s 15-person troupe of actors and comics transmutes audience suggestions into fits of belly laughter by imagining scenes with clean wit and hilarity. Moderated by a referee, two teams of chuckle constructors act out guffaw-inspiring skits and competitions, allowing audiences to appoint the winners and tickle the losers. The cast spins different yarns at each performance, employing only humor appropriate for ages 8 and up in a squeaky-clean comedic atmosphere calibrated for family outings.
