Without laughter, playgrounds would be silent except for the creaking of old swing sets and the trickling of tears into belowground aquifers. Celebrate the sound of mirth with today's Groupon: for $16, you get two tickets to a TubShark sketch-comedy show at Big Dog Theater in Cleveland Heights (a $32 value). Choose between the following performances:
- Friday, September 9, at 9 p.m.
- Saturday, September 10, at 9 p.m.
Composed of veterans of HBO, The Onion, and Second City, the recently birthed comedy troupe TubShark unveils its mirth-making stylings with two shows at Big Dog Theater. Enjoy a night’s worth of free-range laughter with TubShark’s eclectic revue, which blends the sensibilities of groundbreaking programs such as Mr. Show, Kids in the Hall, and Trapper John, M.D.. Northeast Ohio–bred comedy talents Jesse Alison, James Catullo, Tim Cornett, Marissa DeSantis, Jessica Fleming, Liz Huff, and Nick Staron write and perform all sketches, weaving audience interaction, standup, film or video, and music like a gang of wisecracking seamstresses.
