20th Birthday Weekend!

Don’t miss the funniest fixture of the year as we celebrate twenty years of fun and laughter this month! We have a very special weekend of shows at Waterside Arts and the venue where it all began, Chorley Theatre.

ComedySportz celebrate 20 years of comedy this month. Tickets are available now for dates at Chorley Theatre and Waterside Arts.

“When we started in 2001, it was only meant to be a one off for charity,” says Brainne Edge, manager of CSzUK. Brainne had seen ComedySportz in America and got permission to bring the format to Chorley Youth Theatre, which she was running at the time. “The show proved such a hit that the show has now been going for 20 years.”

Since 2001 we have since gone on to have residencies at renowned comedy clubs The Frog and Bucket and The Comedy Store and now perform monthly at Waterside Arts in Sale, Manchester. We are delighted to once again be returning to Chorley Theatre for a very special 20th anniversary match – especially as last year’s match was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Twenty years is a long time to do anything and it truly is you, our audience, that have given the show such longevity. As Brainne explains, “It’s a show that anyone of all ages can enjoy. Everything is made up from audience suggestions so we never know what is going to happen.”

Our ComedySportz shows have always been family friendly and we’re delighted that the shows keeps being discovered by new audiences. It’s been a fantastic twenty years and we hope you’ll join us at either of our birthday shows for some all action, all improvised competitive comedy fun!

Chorley Theatre, Friday 19th November

It’s Original Chorley Players vs, The World in this special birthday show. We’ll be playing plenty of fan favourite games as both teams compete for your laughs! Will Chorley win again…? Probably.

Doors open 7pm. The fun kicks off at 7.30pm. Tickets are available now from the theatre website, box office or Malcolm’s Musicland.

Waterside Arts, Saturday 20th November

It’s an Oldies vs Newbs match as some of our longest running players take on the new generation as we celebrate twenty years of gags, games, sketches and songs!

The fun kicks off at 6.30pm. Tickets are available now from the theatre website or box office. Got kids aged 6 and under? Check out ComedySportz 4 Tots at 3pm (same day).

Never seen a ComedySportz match before? Two teams compete for your laughs with quick-witted gags and games inspired by your suggestions. It’s totally unscripted, unpredictable and unmissable! There’s a referee on hand to ensure a good clean match with penalties for bad behaviour and bad jokes. Who wins? You decide!

11 years at Waterside Arts!

We’re celebrating our 11th year at Waterside Arts this month! Thanks to all the staff and audiences who have made the last 11 years so much fun.

The Waterside is a fantastic venue that has allowed us to develop new shows (ah, the short lived Wrong! The Musical) and supported us as we’ve grown our audience and we’d like to give a very special thank you to all the team there!

Special thanks also to the audiences that have come to watch shows or attended workshops over the last eleven years!

Be sure to book your tickets for our shows on June 15th (especially as our next ones won’t be until late August!)
