In 2001 ComedySportz UK started with just two teams, one ref, no script and some jokes! Not much has changed since then (our except our player’s kits) and we’re delighted to be returning to the venue where it all began – Chorley Little Theatre – to celebrate 18 years of fun and laughter on Saturday, 16th of November!
It’s hard to believe since those humble beginnings that we’re still here 18 years later and have performed and taught all over the world! Our journey started when Bron (centre, pic above) came back from America to run the youth theatre at Chorley Little Theatre. She had fallen in love the show in America and asked if we could do a one off show for charity. Players and audience members love it and we’ve been putting the world into CSz Worldwide ever since!
Our birthday shows are always a highlight of our year and great fun for all ages. As always our birthday show will be a Chorley vs. Manchester match with players who have been with us since the beginning versus newer players. ComedySportz UK is now also legally old enough to drink so you’ll be able to find us in the bar after!
We’ll be playing plenty of audience favourite games including ‘Object Tag!’ so be prepared to bring some really imaginative objects to see if we use them in our game! In previous years people have given us everything from a spare tyre to a microwave from which to craft quick-witted jokes and gags.

If you can’t make it to Chorley you can also catch us at Waterside Arts (also on the 16th) as well as ComedySportz 4 Tots. Be sure to follow us on social media as we share memories from the last 18 years and we hope you’ll join us as we celebrate this very special birthday weekend!
These dates are also currently our last regular ComedySportz shows of 2019 as December will see the return of our our Improvised Pantomimes – book your tickets now!
