What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||Laughing with or Laughing at?_|
Practice your own spit take with a mouthful of granddad’s famous scuppernong wine and today’s deal. Today’s Groupon gets you two tickets to see an improv comedy show at Village Theatre for $8, a $20 value. Your Groupon is valid for any of Village Theatre’s $10 shows, including Improv A**Hole, Comedy Live, and Longform Steakhouse. Check out Village Theatre at 8:30 p.m. any Thursday, Friday, or Saturday for unscripted hilarity with friends and your own bottles of brew. Help your straight-laced sister loosen up or bring your bawdy ballerinas to exceed your recommended daily value of funny and raspberry cookies dipped in gold from the sun.
As you make suggestions for the improv show, the talented actors at Village Theatre will use them to birth delicious and uproariously funny skits. Wash down the tasty tales from talented minds with your own bottle of wine or beer ($3 cork/cooler check fee applies). Because you and your date will be incapable of controlling yourselves after your forced bouts of delirious laughter, cozy up to someone with whom you want to test the waters. Or come with a big group to pick up some jokes funnier than any you could have come up with on your own. Shows last 90 minutes to two hours.

Skirt magazine, Daily Candy, CBS’s Better Mornings, and Sunday Paper hail Village Theatre as a hilarious night out. Yelpers give it 4.5 stars and a lone CityVoter adds to the praise: > * There are 15 troupe members who rotate each week, so the routine never gets old…It’s fun, interactive and outlandish. – Carly Felton, Sunday Paper > * I love the crew that runs this joint and how they do their thing. Like skinny dipping in a rainbow river of kaleidoscopic comedy. Lush like dragon egg omelets with extra cheese. – Saul T., Yelp > * The crew is not only hilarious, but they are all so individually [sic] and disinctly [sic] funny. They are a great addition to the Atlanta nightlife entertainment scene. – Kim C., Yelp
Laughing with or Laughing at?
At Village Theatre, it's considered rude not to laugh at the antics of the performers. In daily life, however, it's not so clear. Use this helpful guide to determine whether the surrounding crowds of people laughing and pointing are doing so with you or at you:
If your pants are around your ankles, revealing The Last Unicorn-themed boxers you were forced to wear that morning due to a laundry accident: They are laughing with you. Everyone adores author Peter S. Beagle's poetic, yet occasionally anachronistic musings on what it is to want and to be wanted in this beloved deconstruction of European folklore.
If you are legendary comedian Scoopy St. Claire of Fort Lee, New Jersey:They are laughing at you. Your career is over...long over. It is time for you to march into the sea with the rest of the barnacles and save the spotlight for someone who can make a rapping puppet fart without moving his lips.
If you are laughing back at them: Then the game is afoot! Quickly, to the chucklecopter!
