The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Jan 1, 2011. Amount paid never expires. Limit 3 per person. Reservation required. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Responding wittily via text message or smoke signal delays a punch line, effectively ruining the joke. Today's side deal features performers with swift-footed minds. For $7, you get a general-admission ticket to a Saturday-night performance by the Secret Improv Society (a $15 value). Each Saturday from 10 p.m. until around 11:15 p.m. at the Shelton Theatre on Sutter Street, real, human improvites craft original blankets of hilarity out of the threads of improvised games, short sketches, live music, and audience participation.

The Secret Improv Society is composed of a talented lineup of seasoned improv-ers who teach audiences that there's a way into and out of every imaginable situation. Every single show is a brand-new experience that explores the twisted contours of humor and reason, excavating comedy from mines of everyday life. The theater is close to Union Square, BART, and MUNI.


Yelpers give Secret Improv Society four stars:

  • This group is BRILLIANTLY quick-witted. – Naomi L.
  • The actors really engaged the audience, incorporated audience suggestions well, and every actor added a unique flavor to the whole troupe. – Vivian C.
  • ...SIS has been making it work for a while now, and have obviousy [sic] honed their craft in the intimate venue where they play, giving and taking from the audience in a way that had me roaring with laughter. – Andrew M.

Secret Improv Society

Every Friday and Saturday night, the performers of the Secret Improv Society initiate a new batch of devotees into their alliance of short-form improv, comedic games, and live music. An audience of no more than 60 contributes to the content of each show in ways that exclude lobbing tomatoes or volunteering to be sawn in half. From random, spontaneous audience suggestions, the cast launches into an impromptu sketch that may skewer romantic relationships, office politics, or current events. Since the cast rotates and the audience changes, every 75- to 90-minute show is as fresh and unique as a dry-cleaned abstract expressionist painting.

the show was fantastic! Very funny cast and the audience helped as well. One thing to note is that you need to email them ahead of time for the groupon because they might be sold out
