The ComedySportz Theatre, Chicago

#19 of 41 in Fun & Games in Chicago
Nightlife · Comedy Club
Newcity said "Recommended ... fast-paced, consistently positive show ... ComedySportz has clearly hit on a winning formula, proudly maintaining the title of longest-running short form improv comedy show in Chicago"!

A high-energy format helmed by a referee and rocked by a keyboard player, the blue Downtown Chicago Bosses and the red team compete for laughter and applause, completely based on audience suggestions and willing volunteers, to create on-the-spot scenes, games and songs.

Since 1987, ComedySportz is comedy for everyone, featuring a full service bar (no drink minimum!), group events, classes and creativity workshops, all just steps from the Belmont L stop.
