ComedySportz UK is the North West’s top improvised comedy troupe. ComedySportz is a fast-paced improv comedy show where two teams battle it out for the biggest laughs.

The players create quick witted sketches, scenes and songs from whatever suggestions are thrown at them by the audience to create a show that’s fast, feelgood and always unpredictably funny. There’s a referee on hand to steer the entertainment, call any fouls, and help the audience decide the winner.

Comedy Workshops

We deliver regular workshops in Improvisation and Stand Up comedy as well as shorter courses and workshops that cover areas such as clowning, sketch writing and longform improvisation. You can find more information about our regular courses on our Workshops page. Workshops are held across Manchester.

Our next term starts 7th April 2018.

We also provide bespoke workshops and shows for education and corporate sectors. Improv has much to teach us about life with many fantastic transferable skills to help you, your team or your class develop. If your school or company is looking to improve skills for collaborative and devised work, to promote team building and confidence or simply to reward hard work by playing harder, don’t hesitate to get in touch for more info to see how ComedySportz can help with our bespoke workshops designed to accommodate any budget.

For businesses we also have flexible corporate entertainment packages, combining training days with a show to improve staff team work, performance and business communication.

You can find out more about our work in education on our Workshops for Schools page and our corporate training packages at our CSz For Business sub-site.
