What You'll Get
Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets (a $24 value) to an upcoming performance of Bye Bye Liver, an interactive sketch comedy that celebrates the consumption of adult beverages. The games begin on stage at Mikey's, a lively East Town restaurant and bar, every Friday and Saturday night at 9:30 p.m.
Bye Bye Liver has been busting the chops of mutton- and non-mutton-chopped Chicagoans for the past three years; now, it moves its stage-based bar crawl to Mikey's. The show flows through a series of skignettches, which is comedish for “sketch vignettes,” parodying the intoxicating world of drinking, barhopping, drinking, and drinking. Many interactive games played during the show break down the fourth wall of the theater, fusing the estranged cast and audience into a familiar bunch of suds-soaked pals. Specials served throughout the evening include $12 buckets of four Miller Lites and $4 drinks from the well. All shows are 21+ in accordance with the United States Declaration of Independence.
No matter how spirited you are about spirited liquids, Bye Bye Liver will have your party's abdominal six-packs shaking with laughter. For bonus participation points, feel free to open your liquids and solids tab early at Mikey's, which serves up eats and drinks all the way up to seating time at 9 p.m.
- The show weaves interactive social games throughout the play which will have you laughing, singing, and perhaps getting to know the people next to you a bit more than you would have ever imagined (or wanted to). – Jimbo, Milwaukee Comedy
- My wife and I saw the show in chicago weeks ago. We loved every moment! Can't wait to see in in [sic] Milwaukee. Now we won't have to travel as far for our good times and great laughs. – Steven, Express Milwaukee
