Also memorable is gift of shared, human experience. The Improv Playhouse (1991 Sheridan Road, Highland Park, 847-968-4529) offers gift certificates for any of their comedy classes and their weekly live performances.
“The fun memories our students and audience members take away last a whole lot longer than material things,” said David Stuart of the Improv Playhouse. “And in a world of digital detachment, we provide good old analog laughter. We’re offering a guaranteed great time for people of any age or background.”
At the Improv Playhouse, classes in improv and stand-up run year-round, including a number starting in January right after the holidays (“When everything’s cold and dark and you need some cheering up,” added Stuart.) Kids and adults alike have a great time, meet new people and may even learn how to brighten up the world of those around them.
