ComedySportz All-Star Weekend

We may still be self-isolating but this weekend ComedySportz teams are more connected than ever with the ComedySportz All-Star Weekend! Don’t miss this international weekend of all action, all star improv fun.

ComedySportz Worldwide

Manchester will be hosting the first show at 7pm BST joined by players from CSz Maine, CSz Indianapolis, CSz Austin and CSz Seattle. Later in the evening (or early in the morning depending where you live) some of our Manchester players will be playing with CSz Buffalo, CSz Richmond and CSz Boston (Times Vary).  For a full line-up of shows visit CSz Worldwide today!

You can watch all of ComedySportz UK’s online matches at our youtube channel but please not different teams are hosting shows in different ways. For a full schedule of upcoming ComedySportz UK online shows visit our shows page.

Covid Comedy Online – Lockdown Laughs Update

We hope you’re keeping safe and healthy during the ongoing lockdown. At ComedySportz we’ve resolved that, even when venues are closed, the show will go on…line! So far we’re done over 20 online comedy shows with more planned to keep families entertained.

Online Comedy Shows

Our quaran-teams have been going toe to toe (from a safe distance) with quick-witted gags and games and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that has watched our shows. We also want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated so far to help support our players.

We’re changing up our weekly schedule from the first week of May to allow players a bit more breathing space for things like going to the shops but we’ll still be performing 3 shows a week. Our first Wednesday evening show will be a Manchester vs. Chorley match.

There is a certain irony that an event like this pandemic has in many ways brought us closer together with ComedySportz players worldwide. Even though we are apart, we are, in many ways, closer than ever. Our weekend matches have become international shows. Upcoming matches including Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas! Visit our shows page for a full line-up of upcoming events.

Shows stream through our youtube channel – you can subscribe now and never miss a show. Don’t forget to follow us on social media for regular updates.

T-Shirt Campaign

If you’ve been enjoying our lockdown laughs and want to wear some brand new ComedySportz merchandise whilst you’re at it, we’re running a T-Shirt campaign at mercht. We’ve tried to keep costs as low as possible. All proceeds will go to support our players – many of whom are full time performers that are currently out of work.

support comedians during covid19 lockdownSupport Online Improv Comedy Please Note: T-Shirts won’t be shipped until after the campaign finishes in just over 2 weeks so don’t panic if you don’t receive yours straight away.

It’s a way for us to give back to those who have donated to help support ComedySportz through this difficult time. The artwork was designed and drawn by ComedySportz UK player John Cooper. You can get your shirt here and thank you for continuing to support comedy online.

An Evening With ComedySportz…

At 7pm BST on Friday 1st May, a group of ComedySportz players will be “live” in conversation. It will be your chance to “Meet The Players” for some relaxed laughs. We’ll be talking about ComedySportz UK’s 18 year history, answering any questions you have and letting you judge us for how untidy our living rooms are. Join us for an evening of fun and laughter as we talk about our years performing to audiences across the world. This will be live on our youtube channel so don’t forget to subscribe!

Online Improv Workshops

We’re continuing to run weekly Digital Drop-Ins. These run Saturdays 3-5pm BST and cost just £5. We update the page Monday/Tuesday every week. We’ve really embraced the challenge of performing and teaching improv comedy online. It’s been a privilege to connect with people across the world to spend a bit of time being  silly together.

…And Finally

Thank you for continuing to support comedy online. We can’t wait to be back in a theatre or workshop space with you all. But until then, stay home, stay safe and keep laughing!

COVID-19

We have made the decision to postpone all workshops until April 18th 2020, at which point we will reassess the situation in line with current guidelines. This means the upcoming Stand-Up and Sketch Writing intensives have been postponed as well as our next few drop-in classes.

We’re deeply disappointed that we are unable to continue to provide classes during this time but safety of workshop attendees and our players must come first.

If you are interested in taking either the Stand Up or Sketch Writing workshops please drop us an email and we’ll be in touch as soon as new dates are confirmed. In the mean time please continue to book a space for our Foundation intensive at the end of April. Rest assured if we have to make the decision to cancel or postpone the workshop we will issue a full refund.

Due to a fluke of scheduling we have very few shows scheduled between now and the 18th April. However we are not outright cancelling shows as we are looking at ways of making them accessible perhaps through live streaming. We will be issuing an update later on this week.
