The Push Comedy Theater will improvise your relationship with their Virtual Valentine's Day Date Night. It's the most fun you'll ever have on date night... and you don't even have to leave your home. Two lucky couples will see the story of their love unfold live over the internet. The couples will be selected at random and interviewed in front of the virtual audience, then the Pushers' Brad McMurran and Courtney Richards will use that information to improvise the story of the couple's relationship. For years, The Pushers have been getting to know diverse couples all across Hampton Roads with this signature piece. This is a free show that will be broadcast live on the Push Comedy Theater Facebook page, however you can still help the Push by donating here.
