What is ComedySportz®?

ComedySportz® is a fun, fast-paced comedy show that’s great for the whole family, great for business entertainment and great for groups of all types.  For more, check out our About page.

What is improvisation?

Unlike “Standup Comedy” in which one performer tells pre-planned jokes to the audience, improvisational comedy involves a whole group of performers making up scenes and playing games on the spot based on audience suggestion

When do you perform?

We perform weekly in New York City.  You can find out more here.

Do you serve foodz and drinkz?

The Broadway Comedy Club serves a variety of food and beverages, and there is a two-item minimum for every person (it can be food or drink). If you are on a diet, don’t worry, the laughter will burn off any extra calories you may take on.  Find out more about the venue here.

What is the seating arrangement at your theater?

ComedySportz® seats general admission. We are a 70-seat, club-style venue with audience seating. There are tables for each seat, perfect for food and drinks or supporting your head when you are doubled-over laughing.

Is your show for kids or adults?

Both! ComedySportz® is an all ages show, meaning that both adults and kids (recommended for 8 years old and up) can find a reason to laugh with our show. We enforce a “brown-bag” foul for any foul language from players… or fans, making us friendly to families.

Teenagerz / College Studentz / Adultz: “Family friendly” doesn’t mean you won’t have a good time, our players make every show fun for every age-group in the audience.  Think a mix of Dora the Explorer, Shrek, and The Honeymooners.

Can I buy ticketz in advance?

Yes, right here.

Do you have classes?
