COMEDYSPORTZ'S FLAGSHIP IMPROV COMEDY SHOW
ComedySportz is the longest-running, game-based, short form improv comedy show in the comedy capital of the world, perfect for all ages, offering comedy for everyone!
ComedySportz's interactive format is emceed by a referee overseeing a hilarious battle of wits between the home team, the blue Downtown Chicago Bosses, and the "visiting" red team, scored by live keyboard music and rocking popular music between scenes! Using audience suggestions and willing volunteers, our professional players create short games, scenes and songs on the spot, and the winner is determined by the Applause-o-Meter and your laughs!
ComedySportz is improvisation played like a sport, so if you're looking for a place to take your kids, families and friends before or after a Cubs game, come to our arena, just a few blocks south of The Friendly Confines - Wrigley Field! Show us your Cubs stubs from that day and get $5 off a CSz Theater ticket. Come and have a show, a drink, and a ball!
Fulfill your Chicago Bucket List: world-class comedy, sports, and pizza!
