About

What is ComedySportz?

It’s not comedy about sports; it’s comedy PLAYED as a sport! Two teams of our professional improvisers compete for laughs and points in this hilarious comedy competition. It’s complete with a referee, uniforms, fouls, flags, coaches, and team captains.

Just like all sports, there are fouls in ComedySportz to keep the show from being boring or in poor taste; there’s even one to make a player apologize for telling a lame joke! When was the last time you saw that? The show is always completely interactive, and suitable for everyone. If you think “clean” is boring, you owe it to yourself to check us out. It’s anything but boring.

ComedySportz® even works for tough-to-please business groups. 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. Our fans help pick what games the teams will play, yells suggestions and ultimately decides which team is the evening’s winner.

Corporate Training and Team Building

CSz Business Training. Because work is more than numbers.

Customer Service. Leadership. Communications Skills. Soft Skills. Agility. Employee Engagement.

As CSz performers, we use our improvisation skills onstage to get people laughing. Conveniently, offstage, we use them to run a successful business. We specialize in teaching people HOW to use improvisation techniques in their work lives. We teach the essential, yet often overlooked or discarded, communication and listening skills that will consistently improve the quality of your work, home and social relationships. We call this Applied Improvisation.

Customer Service

What if your employees were empowered to make customer service an opportunity instead of a cost?

The top of your game is not your rulebook, nor your script, nor what you did with the last customer. It’s improvisation - a highly refined system of observing, connecting and responding. We apply improv to these areas:

  • Listening with focus
  • Accepting circumstances
  • Empathy with Customers
  • Supporting the Team - making others look good
  • Letting Go of preconceived roles and roadblocks
  • Sharing mistakes - and shaking them off
  • Saying YES, AND…
  • Finding where we’re needed without direction
  • Awareness of the Big Picture

And while we help your people become more effective, we’re bonding them together, engaging them and helping you retain them.

Workshops range from two hours to multiple days to a series over several weeks. Let us know what you need. We’d love to help you get your service to the next level.

ComedySportz (Club 185) is my favorite destination for a girls night out, date night, or a family night. Consistently funny, always clean, great value, and so much fun! My face gets sore from smiling so much. Shows are every Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm. You can bring in food and drink or buy chips/soda/candy at the concession stand. We have been going for years! We like it so much that my husband took several of their improv classes and is now one of the players.

This is my favorite thing to do on a Friday or Saturday night! This is very similar to “Whose Line Is It Anyway, ” but it’s live right here in SA! The talent is top notch and it’s always different each time we go. They are never vulgar or lewd, but they are still hilarious. The price is right and I love that they are a BYOB establishment.
- by Ryan W. July 22, 2018
Very cool place to see some fun improv. Always have a good time here. Place is BYOB which is nice.

What is ComedySportz?

ComedySportz is competitive improvisational comedy.

Two teams, The Punslingers in Red and The Bexars in Blue battle for the laughs of you, the Loyal Fans. The Players create comedic scenes, songs and games based on the suggestions of the audience. A Referee times the games, calls the fouls and keeps things moving while an Announcer gives scoring updates and color commentary.

ComedySportz is interactive and appropriate for EVERYONE. And because it is interactive, the audience gets in on the fun by awarding points, shouting out suggestions and choosing the WINNER!

Educational and Entertaining

Want to add some educational programming to your entertainment? Our Players have been performing and improvising for decades and they love to share what they know. If requested, the Players will meet with the kids after the match to answer any questions they may have about improvisation as an art form and life skill, the theater and ComedySportz.

Think your Middle School or High School students might want to get more involved? Add an Improv Workshop to the assembly! We offer a variety of workshops for groups large and small. The students will learn the basics of improv while actually getting up and playing some of our most popular games. Workshops can also be booked by themselves.
