WHAT IS COMEDYSPORTZ?
Two teams of players compete in an improv match for laughs and points, with a referee getting suggestions from the audience and calling fouls. Each show is different, with different players, different games, and different audiences supplying new suggestions. The fans judge the scenes, and decide the winners and losers. If you like TV’s Whose Line Is It Anyway, you’ll love ComedySportz!
The Designated Jokester is unique to Comedy Sportz. This is a player who wears black and will play for both teams! Each team covets having the DJ and it gives them an extra advantage during the match. The DJ wants both teams to win. But let’s be honest, The DJ just wants YOU to win.
The winners of ComedySportz is decided by you! We use Red and Blue Flyswatters as voting paddles. Not only are they cheap ($3), it guarantees that you will be an instant judge for the evening! Which team will get your vote?
THE BROWN BAG FOUL
ComedySportz is improv for EVERYONE. That means that the littlest of the littles and the oldest of the oldies can come and enjoy a show that is family friendly. If a person says or does something inappropriate or offensive, the whistle is blown and brown paper bag is placed over their head for a reminder of the game. Note that we didn’t say player but PERSON. That means the audience is held to the same standard. The brown bag can be applied to anyone.
THE GROANER FOUL
No Dad jokes allowed! If a player says something that is so punny, so obvious, so “dad joke-y” that it actually makes you groan. We’re with you! The referee will throw the flag and play will continue. Then, the offending player will have to apologize to the entire crowd for making such a horrible joke. The stakes are high! If you don’t accept their apology points are taken away and they return to their bench… in comedy shame.
