ComedySportz New York City is an interactive competition between two teams of professional comedians who perform a series of scenes and songs based on suggestions from the audience. After running for more than ten years in LA and Chicago, the hit show returns to New York City for an open run. Performances are every Saturday at 6pm at The Broadway Comedy Club, 318 W. 53rd Street at 8th Avenue, NYC. Tickets are $10 (with a two drink minimum) at www.smarttix.com or 212-868-4444.
A ComedySportz New York City match features two teams of comedy performers competing for laughs and points, with a referee to keep things moving along. Every show is different, with different players and games, and with audiences supplying new suggestions. Unlike many other forms of performance comedy, ComedySportz is appropriate for all ages.
ComedySportz New York City offers improv classes at The Broadway Comedy Club from 3-5pm on the last Saturday of each month. Classes are $20, which includes a free pass to a show. All levels of experience are welcome. The company also tours with a concentrated travel version of their weekly show and offers corporate team-building seminars.
