Have you ever seen those bizarre Japanese game shows on TV - where contestants run through obstacle courses in their underwear or drive around in go-karts to avoid Power Rangers in tanks - and wondered: who the hell would agree to do that?

The answer: you and your date, and it’ll be awesome.

Every round, four warriors will battle it out to avoid electric shocks, paintball guns, and giant egg-smashing chickens. It’ll be an action-packed full-body experience, as well as an incredibly funny memory you and your date won’t soon forget.

EastVille is a New York staple, and some of the best comics in the city (read: the country) have been known to stop in for surprise shows from time to time. Bring some extra cash (there’s a two-drink minimum) and get ready to sit back and laugh - the venue is small and intimate, so you might be lucky enough to have top comics like Jim Gaffigan or 30 Rock’s Judah Friedlander personally embarrass you in front of your date (or vice versa).

You’ve got one mission here: wait for the instructor to turn around so you and your date can recreate the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore pottery scene from Ghost. Trust us, it’ll be great. Not into Swayze? You’ll still come away from this class with a couple hand-crafted masterpieces of your own. That’s a win-win, from our perspective.

You don’t need to be a Shakespearean scholar to bust a gut laughing here. Once you sit down, every member of the audience gets a free shot - and the actors get plenty more. Watch as a talented troupe bumble their way through Shakespeare’s plays while completely and utterly wasted. It’s a hilarious time for everybody, whether your S.O. is a monocle-clad theater buff or thinks Goneril is a type of venereal disease.
