I am always trying to think of creative and affordable suggestions for Valentine’s Day, and I must say, this $10 a pop find is a true bargain for you and your Sweat Pea and looks like some fabulous fun! The  National Comedy Theatre (NCT) will bring couples together one laugh at a time with a special “House of Cards” show in honor of Valentine’s Day for those who want to celebrate with their significant others in a creative and entertaining way. Tickets are now available for the annual “House of Cards” performances slated for Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7:00 p.m. and Thursday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m!  They are looking for couples to participate in their shows, and stories are needed by Feb. 1. Guest couples receive four tickets to the show!!

During the first part, the cast will interview a random, married couple from the audience. The cast will then play significant scenes from their life together, anything from their first meeting, first date, meeting the parents and even their wedding day.

The second half is set aside for “Comedy Court,” during which couples will have opportunity to “sue” their spouses for pet peeves they might be struggling with. In past shows, an individual sued his girlfriend because she couldn’t make a sandwich correctly, and a girl sued her fiancé because he wanted to build all of their furniture instead of actually buying it. NCT cast members pull out all the stops for each part of the show with emotion and music, to ensure the authenticity of the couple’s significant milestones. Cast members also act as the lawyers, judge, bailiff and witnesses.

The audience will act as the jury during Comedy Court. To be considered as a guest couple, email your story with basic details to sandiego@nationalcomedy.com by Feb. 1, 2013. Guest couples will receive four tickets to the show.

Tickets are just $10 per person for the “House of Cards” performances. For more information or to purchase tickets online, please visit www.nationalcomedy.com contact the NCT Box Office at 619-295-4999.
