Back To School

We hope you’ve had plenty of summer fun and are ready to get back to school… No? Don’t worry we’ve shows to keep you laughing at Waterside Arts… find out more below!

Back to school? Don’t worry, we’ve still got some summer fun lined up!

We’re just about recovered from the Edinburgh Fringe now and had a little time to reflect on what has been an amazing summer of laughter, jokes and comedy shenanigans.

It kicked off with our time at the ComedySportz World Championship where we were honoured to be chosen to  perform in the final against host city Philadelphia!

Just a few days later and we were off to the Edinburgh Fringe to do two shows a day (some of us more) plus guest slots for 17 days! We had a fantastic time with amazing audiences and suggestions plus visiting players from ComedySportz worldwide.

A big thank you, as always, to all the staff at Laughing Horse Free Fringe Festival and the staff at our venues the Pear Tree and The Free Sisters.

You can catch up with all that we got up to over at our instagram.

Our last day at the Edinburgh Fringe! Thanks to the team at The Free Sisters!

…But the fun isn’t quite over as ComedySportz and ComedySportz 4 Tots return to Waterside Arts for some more family friendly fun on Saturday 31st August!

Never seen a ComedySportz match before? We have two teams, one ref, no script and lots of jokes as players fight for your laughs with quick-witted gags, games, sketches and songs. There are penalties for bad behaviour and bad jokes as the referee ensures a good clean match – it’s a family friendly show after all. Who wins? You decide!

ComedySportz 4 Tots is a show for kids aged 6 and under with lots of silly stories, songs and games guaranteed to make you giggle. There are plenty of big laughs for little kids and loads of opportunities for children to get involved in the fun. You can find out more about these and all of our upcoming events on our shows page.

Speaking of back to school, our next batch of workshops starts in September. We’re starting with a special one off Presentation Skills workshop and our new intermediate drop ins on Saturday 28th September. New to Improv? Our Foundation in Improv and Beginning Stand Up Comedy courses start a week later on Saturday 5th October and will run for 8 weeks. You can find out more at our workshops pages.

ComedySportz at Piece Hall this Christmas!

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.

ComedySportz Piece Hall Family Friendly Christmas

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!
