The World Comedy League
ComedySportz Portland is a member of the World Comedy League and one of over 20 ComedySportz cities in the USA and Europe. We meet annually for the World Comedy Championships, which will be held in Philadelphia this year - July 15-17.

Portland hosted – and won – the 2008 and 1999 ComedySportz World Championships, and has participated annually since 1993.
Some of the newer members of the WCL are New York, NY; New Orleans; Sacramento, CA; Austin and San Antonio, TX; and Manchester, UK. In 2010, ComedySportz opens in Berlin, Germany! We're very excited to be part of a world-wide organization.
Team owners of the World Comedy League meet annually to establish rule changes, trade players and vote on important ComedySportz-related issues. We are proud that ComedySportz has not suffered the strikes and lockouts plaguing other professional sports. This is attributed partially to our forward-thinking, longstanding labor agreement, but mostly to the fact that we're all happy, friendly people.
