Improv comedy shows, unlike criminal court proceedings and open-heart surgeries, encourage people in the room to shout out suggestions. Explore the extemporaneous with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to a performance by the Secret Improv Society at the Shelton Theater (a $30 value). Parents should note that Secret Improv Society shows are for mature audiences and not suitable for children younger than 16.

The Secret Improv Society is composed of a talented lineup of seasoned improvisers who teach audiences that there's a way into and out of every imaginable situation. The doors open at 9:45 p.m. each Saturday for the 10 p.m. show. For roughly 75 minutes, these real, human improvisers craft original blankets of hilarity out of the threads of improvised games, short sketches, live music, and audience participation. Every single show is a brand-new experience that explores the twisted contours of humor and reason, excavating comedy from mines of everyday life.

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.

Customer Reviews

Fun times, I would highly recommend it!

I LOVE Secret Improv Society! They're my favorite improv troupe in the Bay Area. I laugh my ___ off whenever I go. I've brought groups of friends there and they've enjoyed it as much as I have. I laugh more at their shows than I do at any movie on the big screen. They also have a musical accompanist who is top notch and is icing on the cake. The theater is nice, too. Very comfortable - every seat is a good seat. There is a fun little lounge area that you go through to get to the show with a bar and live music and the theater is located in a great neighborhood with lots of other things to do before the show. If you like to laugh, you MUST check them out!
