Arguably, the most famous short-form comedy show in the world. A ComedySportz match is comedy played as a sport where two teams of improvisational performers compete in various improv games and performing scenes, with audience members judging the results and awarding points. In every match, a ComedySportz referee monitors the action and administers fouls as necessary. This International comedy show-down is a high-energy hilarious experience, and appropriate for all audiences – all ages, all welcome, all the time!


What is improv comedy?

Unlike "Standup Comedy" in which one performer tells pre-planned jokes to the audience, improvisational comedy involves a whole group of performers making up scenes and playing games on the spot based on audience suggestions.


What's a ComedySportz Match like?

A ComedySportz® Match features two teams of Players competing for laughs and points, with a Referee keeping things moving and calling fouls. An average of seven to twelve games are played during a match, drawn from a repertoire of over a hundred improv games. In "Shakespeare" a team will improvise a scene inspired by an audience suggestion in Shakespearian style. In "Forward/Reverse" the Referee sends the scene back and forth at will, as though scanning a scene in a DVD, sending the Players into a frenzy. Every show is different, with different Players, different games, and different audiences supplying new suggestions. The fans judge the scenes and games and ultimately decide the winners and losers. ComedySportz® also asks “willing volunteers” to join us for a game or two each match, and we make them look great! Who should I bring to ComedySportz?Unlike most other forms of performance comedy, ComedySportz® is great for all ages. The audience of a typical ComedySportz® Match contains everyone from kids and college students to parents and grandparents. Everyone has a good time and no one gets offended, and if a Player steps beyond the boundaries of good taste, the "Potty-Mouth Foul" (a toilet seat placed over the offending Player's head) will be called to set things straight. If you think "clean" is boring, you owe it to yourself to check us out. It's anything but boring. ComedySportz® even works for tough-to-please business groups. 


ComedySportz  Leagues

Just like in any professional sport, ComedySportz® has a Major League for the professional players, Minor Leagues for the aspiring adults, and school leagues for the kids. The ComedySportz® DFW team would like to invite you to be a part of our leagues! See what we have to offer improvisers of all ages!
