What You'll Get


Jump to: Reviews | Printable List of Improv Suggestions

Twenty seconds of laughter gives the heart the same workout as three minutes of hard rowing. Today’s Groupon gets you all the benefits of a bumps race without pelting you with verbal harassment through the Cox Box. For $10, you’ll get two tickets to a Friday Night Family Improv show at Third Coast Theater, a $20 value. (Note: Value applies to regular adult tickets only; student and child tickets are regularly $5.)

The PG-rated program is led by a talented team of in-house improv experts in the vein of Drew Carey’s popular Whose Line is it Anyway? show on the ABC Family Channel. As a member of the audience, you’ll not only create the show (skits are created on-the-spot from audience suggestions), you might be the show, too. Each week, the guffawing gurus invite members of the peanut gallery on stage to act out scenes and test their improv skills.

Laughing makes you feel instantly better, and no one hates to do it, except people with recently broken ribs. Third Coast Comedy, started by husband and wife Dave and Donna Howell-DePew, was created as a family-oriented haven of hilariousities for all ages. At the Friday Night Family Improv show, you won’t have to invent awkward explanations when your 5-year-old nephew or 95-year-old grandmother asks the meaning of a dirty joke. The humor here is always good, clean, random fun.

In addition to reaping all the endorphin-boosting benefits, the show’s interactive structure will enrich your life and relationships. By participating in improv, you’ll increase your confidence, get over your fear of public speaking, and refine your creativity. Get this Groupon if you’re planning a family outing or want to self-medicate without the bad aftertaste.

Printable List of Improv Suggestions

At the beginning of each improv show, the performers ask the audience for a suggestion. This frequently results in 10 to 20 minutes of awkward silence, followed by the performers leaving the stage until an hour of silence passes and a bold audience member finally speaks up with the brilliantly conceived suggestion fart, but his genius call rings coldly across the quiet stage, too tardy to be hilariously interpreted by the cast.
