The Classic Comedy Match

Finally, a fun, fast-paced comedy show that’s great for the whole family, great for business entertainment and great for groups of all types. It’s ComedySportz®, improvisational comedy played as a sport in many cities nationwide, and in the UK, by member companies of CSz Worldwide. We’ve been bringing the funny since 1984. Join us for one of our regularly scheduled public show, or book us for a private event today!


What is improv comedy?

Unlike “Standup Comedy” in which one performer tells pre-planned jokes to the audience, improvisational comedy involves a whole group of performers making up scenes and playing games on the spot based on audience suggestions.

A ComedySportz® match features two teams of players competing for laughs and points, with a referee keeping things moving and calling fouls. An average of seven to twelve games are played during a match, drawn from a repetoire of over a hundred improv games. For example, in the game “Shakespeare” a team will improvise a scene inspired by an audience suggestion in Shakespearian style, and in “Forward/Reverse” the referee sends the scene back and forth at will, as though scanning a scene in a DVD, sending the actletes into a frenzy. Every show is different, with different players, different games, and different audiences supplying new suggestions. The fans judge the scenes and games and ultimately decide the winners and losers. ComedySportz® also asks “willing volunteers” to join us for a game or two during each match, and we make them look great!

Who should I bring to ComedySportz?

Unlike most other forms of performance comedy, ComedySportz® is great for all ages. The audience of a typical ComedySportz® match contains everyone from kids to college students to parents to grandparents. Everyone has a good time and no one gets offended, and if an actlete steps beyond the boundaries of good taste, the “brown bag foul” (a brown paper sack placed over the offending player’s head) will be called to set things straight. If you think “clean” is boring, you owe it to yourself to check us out. It’s anything but boring. ComedySportz® even works for tough-to-please business groups.

FAQs


Who are these ComedySportz® people?

ComedySportz Clubs and Theatres are independently owned businesses licensed by World Comedy League, Inc. The players are paid professionals who trained in our workshops and classes. Many of them have many years of experience; some have played since our founding in 1984. That’s a lot of history – and now, you can read about it in our book - 25 Years …in Four Minutes or Less.
