The Classic Comedy Match
Finally, you've found a fun, fast-paced comedy show that's great for the whole family, great for business entertainment and great for groups of all types. It's ComedySportz®, improvisational comedy played as a sport in many cities nationwide, and in Europe, by member companies of CSz Worldwide. We’ve been bringing the funny around the world since 1984 - in Portland since 1993.
A Sporting Event Like No Other!
A ComedySportz® match features two teams of professional players competing for laughs and points, with a referee keeping things moving and calling fouls. An average of seven to twelve games are played during a match, drawn from a repertoire of over a hundred improv games. In "Shakespeare" a team will improvise a scene inspired by an audience suggestion in Shakespearian style. In "Forward/Reverse" the referee sends the scene back and forth at will, as though scanning a scene in a DVD, sending the players into a frenzy. Every show is different, with different players, different games, and different fans supplying new suggestions. The fans judge the scenes and games and ultimately decide the winners and losers. ComedySportz® also asks “willing volunteers” to join us for a game or two each match, and we make them look great!
It's the longest winning streak in any sport, anywhere.
ComedySportz is fast-paced, hilarious and clean improv comedy. Now in our 24th season (over 1220 straight weekends of shows), we are Portland's longest-running show.
We haven't missed a weekend since May of 1993. Really.
Because everything is improvised, no two matches are alike. Fans never see the same thing twice, and they return again and again to cheer on their favorite players and teams. We keep playing because our fans make this more fun than we can imagine. Check it out for yourself!
