All Ages

ComedySportz is arguably the most famous shortform comedy show in the world. The ComedySportz 4/18 match features two teams of improvisational performers (players) competing in various improv games and performing scenes, with audience members judging the results and awarding points. In every match, a CSz referee monitors the action, awarding points and administering fouls as necessary. The flavor is somewhat like the television show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, though ComedySportz precedes that show’s debut by over 4 years. CSz is a high-energy hilarious experience, and appropriate for all audiences – all ages, all welcome.
