      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

      All ticket prices include complimentary CD
      www.brianmarsella.com

      Brian Marsella’s iMAGiNARiUM hosts a grand celebration and special performance featuring arrangements from their soon to be released debut album chapter one: The Clocks Have Gone Mad. Join Marsella and his cast of extraordinary musique storytellers for an evening of sonic theater, light refreshments from local culinary artisans, and intermission with Philly favorite DJ Frosty.

      Chapter One masterfully blends jazzotica, classical, orchestrated jamtronica, ambient, rock and world elements to tell the dynamic and daring story of a clocks journey in a universe where time ceases. From the joyful and rhythmic to the lopsided and absurd – and – from the sophisticated and polished to the chaotic and rebellious, iMAGiNARiUM leaves no part of the voyage unexplored and without words expresses itself with lucid clarity. Both composed and improvised, every performance is an evocative experience for the cast and the audience.

      4.27.14 iMAGiNARiUM CAST: Brian Marsella, piano & keyboards | Cyro Baptista, percussion | Jason Fraticelli, bass | John Lee, guitar | Meg Okura, violin | Dan Blankinship, trumpet | Tim Keiper, drums
