21st Birthday Match @ Chorley Theatre!

November 28, 2022

Is it nearly the end of the year already? That means it's nearly time for us to celebrate 21 years of fun and games at the place where it all began, Chorley Theatre. Join us on Saturday 3rd December for a special Chorley vs. Manchester match, it's the funniest fixture of the weekend!

‘We started in 2001 with just two teams, one ref, no script and lots of jokes. Not much has changed, except our kits!” says Brainne Edge, who started ComedySportz in the UK. "It was a one-off show for charity at Chorley Theatre, and we had no idea what we were doing. Audiences loved it anyway and here we are today... Still not sure we know what we're doing though!"

Since 2001 we have enjoyed residencies at renowned comedy clubs The Frog and Bucket and The Comedy Store and our monthly shows at Waterside Arts. We have played to sold out crowds at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and we won Best Alternative Comedy Act in the 2022 North West Comedy Awards. We have performed shows for everyone from soap stars to royalty and teach regular workshops in improv and stand-up comedy. You can read more about the history of our shows here.

Returning to Chorley Little Theatre is always a highlight of our year and we promise there will be plenty of audience favourite games including object tag in which the audience donate everyday items that players have to turn into props for jokes. Brainne says, “People seem to save up their items and always surprise us! We’ve had everything from a spare tyre to a microwave. Once, someone even took the wing mirror off their car… at least we hope it was theirs!”

Doors open at 7pm and the fun kicks off at 7.30pm. You can book tickets online or direct from the venue box office. This is our last ComedySportz match of the year before our Totally Improvised Pantomimes!
