ComedySportz Philadelphia


Competitive improv comedy


An improv comedy show unlike anything you've ever seen before: two teams of improvisers battle each other for points and laughs. This is ComedySportz!


ComedySportz is comedy played as a sport and features some of the funniest improvisers in Philadelphia. Every Saturday, The Philadelphia Fighting Amish take on the New Jersey Turnpikes using audience suggestions to create comedic scenes, songs and games. An Announcer provides scoring updates and color commentary and a Referee acts as host: timing the games, calling the fouls and getting suggestions from The Loyal Fans! (That’s you.)  

ComedySportz is an interactive comedy event, appropriate for EVERYONE. And because it is interactive, the audience gets in on the fun by shouting out suggestions, cheering their favorite teams, awarding points 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 with some sweet and salty snacks. We are also BYOB so feel free to bring along your favorite adult beverage. 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!


Looking for a show on Sunday? Try the Minor League Matinee!

Every Sunday afternoon @ 2PM, two teams, The Philadelphia 676ers and The New Jersey Pine Barons take to the field and battle for the laughs of you, the Loyal Fans in a fast-paced 60-minute match.

Mass hilarity!
