Early philosophers often engaged in debates concerning the nature of humor, posing each other enigmatic questions beginning with, "What's the deal with," and ending with, "Am I right?" Indulge in classic rhetoric with today's Groupon: for $24, you get two tickets to a show (up to a $44 value), one appetizer (up to an $8.95 value), and four tickets to a future show (up to an $88 value) at The Improv Comedy Club in Schaumburg (a total value of up to $140.95). All performances are first-come, first-served seating. Dinner reservations get preferred seating.
Improv Comedy Clubs nationwide harness the power of master comedians such as Ellen DeGeneres, Dave Chapelle, and Jerry Seinfeld to thrill the audiences that pack their dynamic, spontaneous play-spaces. Sit back and laugh at the high-energy, physical comedy of Steve Byrne May 19–22, or listen to standup Tammy Pescatelli June 9–12 as she tickles funny bones and jocular cartilage with potent waves of humor. Or pick another night to enjoy the club’s eclectic schedule of hilarious up-and-coming artists and established pros. With four additional tickets, one same lucky couple can see two other shows or invite friends to share chuckles and a fudgy layer of brownie points.
With this Groupon, humor connoisseurs also indulge in an appetizer to entertain palates with a surfeit of options such as prime-rib taquitos ($8.95) or crispy jalapeño ravioli ($8.50. The showroom enforces a two-item minimum for all parties, meaning customers must endure the agony of an unexpected spit-take while enjoying a refreshing soda, drink, or scrumptious dessert during the side-splitting performance.
The Improv Comedy Club
For nearly 50 years, the Improv chain has incubated standup talent—notable alumni such as Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, and Robin Williams all conquered The Improv stage before getting their big breaks. The Chicago location carries on the Improv’s tradition of catching rising stars before they turn into supernovas spewing dangerous molten punch lines with a calendar of up-and-comers and nationally touring talent.
