What is ComedySportz?

Every Saturday night @ 7:30 and 10, two teams, The Philadelphia Fighting Amish and The New Jersey Turnpikes battle for the laughs of you, the Loyal Fans. The Players compete over several rounds using the sport's myriad of official improv games while a Referee calls the fouls and keeps things moving. In this interactive show, appropriate for EVERYONE, the audience gets in on the fun, awarding points and shouting out suggestions.

ComedySportz® is the only world-recognized sport of competitive improvisation, founded by Richard Gerald Chudnow in 1984. In arenas throughout the world, teams of players do comedy battles based on suggestions given by the Loyal Fans. 


What the Loyal Fans say about ComedySportz Philadelphia:

You guys left me with a kink in my side due to the amount I was laughing. Brilliant crew with quick minds, it was my first live improv and it was great. I plan to be back many times!

Just wanted to say thanks so much for welcoming AATH members to the club Saturday night. The show was great and everyone had such a good time. I laughed so hard I stayed for both shows! It really was the perfect ending to our conference.
