How We First Met

$40 - $55


HOW WE FIRST MET, the hit comedy show that shares real tales of romance brought to hilarious life on stage by a crack team of improv performers, returns to San Francisco for a special Valentine’s Day performance. HOW WE FIRST MET is an uplifting, spontaneous theatrical experience that has been making Valentine’s Day memorable for audiences around the world – from Toronto to Tokyo, New York to Melbourne (and this year will also be performed February 14 in Norway) – since its first San Francisco performance in 2001, and will be presented at 8pm, Friday, February 14, 2014 at the historic Marines’ Memorial Theatre in San Francisco.

This one-of-a-kind show gets the scoop on real life romance by finding the comedy in meeting, dating, and mating. Couples that are interested in starring in the show post their stories and pictures on the website, and the public can vote on who should be included. The top ten couples are brought on stage to give the audience a ten-word version of how they met and the audience picks their favorite three couples. Those pairs are interviewed live on stage about how they got together, while a team of brilliant performers transforms pivotal moments from each real-life romantic rendezvous into improvised sketches and songs.
