The ComedySportz Theatre hosts our main stage show 'ComedySportz' every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 'ComedySportz' is improv comedy with performers split up into two teams who perform short scenes, song and games based on audience suggestions. It's not ABOUT sports, it IS a sport - the players compete for the audience's approval. It's hilarious improv comedy that is appropriate for all ages and has been making people laugh for 25 years.The ComedySportz Theatre also hosts late night shows and other comedy shows throughout the week. These additional shows include stand-up and sketch comedy as well as improv, and some are recommended for audiences 18 and over.

We were here with a tour group and was just so so. Had I been here with my whole family and paid $25 a ticket I'd be even more disappointed. Just wasn't very funny and they kept picking the front tables for suggestions.

Venue is very intimate and so all attendees get invited to participate in some way with the show. The actors were incredibly creative and as the show revolved around audience suggestions, it was...

This was a great family friendly option. My kids loved it and the humor was clean. One improv team had 6 kids on it. That ruined the show. I felt like I was at a 9 year old's birthday party instead of paying $25/ticket. If the kids hadn't been there I would rate this excellent. Thought especially that Shay was... More

We were in the city for spring break and looking to entertain our kids (ages 12 & 15). The show was very entertaining and All ages were welcome. The improv was "clean" and very funny.

Took my family to see a show here last night. Their description said it was family-friendly, and that turned out to be true. They were very clean, and very funny. We all had a great time, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

We bring 70+ students to this show every year and the comedians never disappoint. The show is really funny and gets the audience fully involved. The teen oriented show version (they also have an adult version) is a fantastic way to give teens a flavor for nightlife without worry.
