ComedySportz
Oct 25 @ 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm

ComedySportz is improv comedy, played as a sport.

ComedySportz is Philadelphia’s leading improv comedy show. Since 1993 ComedySportz has been entertaining fans with the fastest and funniest form of improv comedy ever seen. Two teams of improvisers vie for points in a hilarious competition by playing a series of improv games, similar to what yo may have seen on TVs Whose Line Is It Anyway? A referee governs the action, calling fouls and keeping the match moving at a blistering pace. The audience is always a part of the interactive show, and audience volunteers sometimes even wind up on stage!

Because everything is improvised, it’s never the same show twice. And it’s clean–appropriate for all ages. Every ComedySportz match is a unique and unforgettable event–laughs guaranteed! Come see why so many people come back to see us again and again.

Shows run 1 hour, 30 minutes with intermission. All seats are general admission. The box office opens 45 minutes prior to showtime. We recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to showtime to get the best seats. Ticket sales are cash or check-only at the theater
