Let The Funnies Begin

The Hunger Games dominated the box office and featured its main characters fighting to the death. The Humor Games dominates the Showtime Theater and is an action-packed, nonstop laughathon. Basically the same thing except with fewer dying teenagers and more superhappy audience members. The best part about the Humor Games is it features improv troupe Sick Puppies Comedy, and every single bit of funny it drips onto the stage is made up right on the spot. The audience helps decide on the direction, and every Sick Puppies show this year has sold out, so make sure to act fast if you are in the mood to laugh your ass off. Come prepared with an arsenal of funny things to yell out. We'll get you started: guacamole. Sick Puppies Comedy Presents: The Humor Games takes place Friday from 9:30 to 11 p.m. at the Showtime Performing Arts Theater (503 SE Mizner Blvd. in Boca Raton). Tickets cost $20, $30, or $100 plus fees. To reserve your seat, visit sickpuppiescomedy.com or call 954-667-7735.
