ComedySportz® New York is a fast paced, interactive improvised comedy show played as a sport. Two teams of improvisers face off funny bone to funny bone and vie for your applause and laughter. The ref keeps the match going by getting suggestions from you, our loyal fans, that the players use to create everything that you will see and hear during the match. At the end of the match you, the loyal fans, will choose a winner and that team will be victorious!
ComedySportz® New York continually strives to create and maintain a diverse, equitable, inclusive space that is dedicated to respecting, hearing and uplifting the many voices of our community. Especially voices and experiences of our community members from historically underrepresented groups, such as and not limited to: BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual and additional self-identities), Women and People with Disabilities.
ComedySportz® New York City is fast-paced, family-friendly improvisational comedy, played as a sport. Two teams take turns making up scenes, playing games and singing songs – and the audience votes on which team they like the best. It’s all presided over by a referee, who keeps things moving, calls the ComedySportz® fouls and takes suggestions shouted out by the audience before each game.
