You’ve seen football… You’ve seen tennis… But have you seen Comedy as a sport?
ComedySportz is the all ages, all action, all improvised competitive comedy show that sees two teams battle it out for laughs with quick-witted gags, games, sketches and songs inspired by your suggestions. There’s a referee on hand to ensure a good clean match – it’s a family friendly show after all – with penalties for bad behaviour and bad jokes. Who wins? You decide!
ComedySportz have been delighting audiences across the UK with shows and workshops for all ages since 2001. A proud member of the CSz Worldwide family.
Regular Workshops and Courses
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. We are Manchester’s longest running regular Improv course.
