the blue show

The Blue Show is comedy for the 18+ crowd. Join us after the Friday, 8 p.m. ComedySportz match as the players change out of their uniforms and play dirty.  No audience suggestion will be turned away and nothing will hold these players back from the bawdy, the outrageous, and the downright hilarious. This is pure, unfiltered, late-night improv.

There is no age limit for this show, but enter at your own risk due to adult content.

Fridays @ 10 p.m.
$15 (or $5 if you see ComedySportz beforehand!)

Get On Up

Get on Up! is the free improv jam where anything can happen! Join your hosts as they host a night of challenges and improv games with the audience.

No prior experience is needed, and participation is not necessary to attend (though highly encouraged). 

Fridays @ 11:30 p.m.
Absolutely free

Midnight Blue

Midnight Blue is 60-minute show where late at night the ComedySportz ensemble gathers to improvise with no fouls, no rules, and no subject matter too taboo. We invite you to ditch the kids and hang out after the 10 p.m. ComedySportz match.
