Our Improvised Panto returns this December for more festive fun the whole family can enjoy! There will be heroes, villains, romance and songs aplenty all inspired by your suggestions. There will be plenty of opportunities to join in the fun – oh yes there will – in this highly interactive show full of gags and games… and every villain is going to need a henchman!
Our improvised pantomimes are a loving pastiche of traditional panto tropes and characters and alternative to the same old stories. Players don’t know which character they’re going to be play or what the story is going to be about as our fairy god-referees take suggestions from the audience. We will have live musical accompaniment for this year’s shows as well which is something we’ve wanted for a while!
We’ll be bringing our improvised panto to The Palace in Longridge for the first time this December. It’ll be a night of laughter and mirth as players craft a pantomime adventure with only your suggestions and a sprinkling of fairy dust to guide them. We can’t wait to bring the show to the Palace (eat your heart out Cinderella) next month.
6th December 7.30pm
This is our third year of doing the pantomimes and they’ve been a sell-out success at Waterside Arts in previous years. We’re delighted to be back this year with four more shows so be sure to book your tickets now!
7pm 13th December
3pm 14th December(This will replace our regular ComedySportz 4 Tots show but still be aimed at an age 6 and under audience so book appropriately!)

Finally, we’ll also be performing an Adults Only version of the Improvised Pantomime on Saturday 7th December at The Kings Arms, Salford. This will replace our regular Improv Mullet Show. The show will start at 7.30pm!
These are currently our last booked in shows for 2019 so you won’t want to miss them! We’ll then return in January with new workshops and our New Year, New Games special at Waterside Arts!

We’ve got one final festive treat lined up for 2018 with two shows in the fabulous Spiegeltent at Piece Hall in Halifax!
Never seen a ComedySportz match before? Two teams will battle it out for your laughter using 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. The show is lots of fun for all ages, from chuckling children to giggling grandparents.
As it’s Christmas time we’ll be sure to throw in a few festive themed games. There will also be plenty of opportunities to get involved in these all action, all improvised comedy shows.
We were delighted to be asked back to the Spiegeltent after appearing at the Comedy for Kids show last year and there is a fantastic line up of events for families across the whole festive period. Piece Hall is wonderful venue packed full of great places to shop and eat – we might even do a little last minute Christmas shopping ourselves…
So if you’re looking for something to do with the family over Christmas you don’t want to miss ComedySportz at The Piece Hall!
ComedySportz @ Piece Hall 22nd and 27th December

We’re only a few weeks away from the return of the ComedySportz Improvised Pantomime! OH YES WE ARE!
Each show will be a completely new adventure created from your suggestions and a little sprinkling of fairy dust. There will be heroes, villains and what we lovingly refer to as songs in this fond pastiche of the nation’s favourite Christmas show – we might also throw in a few ComedySportz games for good measure.
There will also be plenty of opportunities to join in to help our heroes win the day… and every good villain needs a henchman!
Our improvised pantomime proved a real hit with audiences at the Waterside in 2017 and we’re delighted to be back with more shows and more venues. With shows across Greater Manchester, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch these fantastically festive shows that are an alternative Christmas treat that the whole family can enjoy!
