Get Up, Standup

South Florida's premier comedy company, Sick Puppies Comedy, can effortlessly combine the elements of sketch, standup, and improv into one show. Drawing inspiration from its audience, these Sick Puppies travel throughout South Florida to create comedy shows unlike any other. Feeding off the crowd's energy, there is no such thing as rehearsal for a Sick Puppies show. Jokes will appear and immediately become a thing of the past from the moment the words are spoken, so you'll never have to worry about hearing the same joke or seeing the same show twice. As for comedians who outwardly select members from the audience to base their jokes around, that simply isn't Sick Puppies' style. The cast craftily re-creates the elements of a scene from a play or movie, drawing upon an authentic theater experience. So relax, kick back, and have a brew or two from South Florida's Funky Buddha Lounge while watching a Sick-Puppies Improvised Stand Up Comedy Show on Saturday at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Funky Buddha is located at 2621 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Admission is $5 at the door. Call 954-667-7735, or visit
