Improv comedy, played as a sport.
Get ready for a comedy show unlike anything you've ever seen. ComedySportz is competitive improv comedy. Two teams of improvisers, The Philadelphia Fighting Amish and The New Jersey Turnpikes battle each other for the laughs of you, the Loyal Fans.
How It's Played
ComedySportz is a comedy sporting event. Each round, the Players take audience suggestions to create comedic scenes and songs using a wide variety of official ComedySportz improv games. A Referee times the games, calls the fouls and keeps things moving while an Announcer provides scoring updates and color commentary.
The Comedy Show Where You Get To Yell Things
ComedySportz is an interactive comedy event, appropriate for EVERYONE. And because it is interactive, the audience gets in on the fun by cheering their favorite teams, awarding points, shouting out suggestions and choosing the WINNER!
Small Costs, Big Fun
Unlike comedy clubs, we have no food or drink minimums at our venue. We do have a concessions stand offering snacks and we are BYOB so feel free to bring along your favorite adult beverage (of course all PA liquor laws apply and visibly drunk/disruptive fans will be asked to leave).
Bring a group of friends, your family or that special someone and enjoy a night of fast, smart comedy: ComedySportz!
