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.
