What’s a ComedySportz Match like?
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 repertoire of over a hundred improv games. In “Shakespeare” a team will improvise a scene inspired by an audience suggestion in Shakespearian style. In “Forward/Reverse” the Referee sends the scene back and forth at will, as though scanning a scene in a DVD, sending the Players 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 each match, and we make them look great!
