A rigid Western obsession with time tables and organized schedules has left the American spirit dangerously confined. Today's Groupon offers improvisation, the well-paved road to free thinking, with a ticket to see The Trip Fives Improv Comedy live at the Westport Coffeehouse on January 9 at 6:30 p.m. for $5. Welcome in a new year with unstale jokes you can't see coming, despite your resolution to nurture clairvoyance.
Composed of an Ed, a Jared, a Jen, one Megan, and a dash of Tim, The Trip Fives unanimously agreed that five is the funniest number after 105, which is practically an impossible number of people to fit on stage. Their style of improv employs no games or tricks, but relies solely on their five brains' ability to save their five butts when the spotlight is turned on by a man on rollerskates.
Rated by CityVoter as Kansas City's Best Improv Comedy Group/troupe/band/amalgum of chuckles, The Trip Fives unite into a superbeing that can extract the funny out of anything. Today's deal is good for their Second Saturdays show at 6:30 p.m. at Westport Coffeehouse, because the third Saturday of any month is a more challenging day to make people laugh.
