ComedySportz and Special Needs Programming

This past weekend, ComedySportz New York had the honor and privilege of working with the Adaptations Group at JCC in Manhattan. Adaptations is part of the Young Audlt Life Skills Network and focuses on programming for Young Adults with Special Needs.

Two of our members, Drew and John, visited the group on Saturday night to do an All-Star Duo Show, and play some games and exercises with the group. Here’s what the incredibly nice and awesome Director had to say about the event:

Thank you so much for coming. I do think our Adaptations members fully enjoyed the evening.

The ComedySportz team fully engaged our group of Adaptations (Young Adult Life Skills Network) members. Their unique games and comic routines kept everyone on their toes and ready for a good time. Smiles and laughs ruled the evening. Everyone has asked for them to return!

ComedySportz and Faith-based Organizations

The ComedySportz National Touring Company will be helping the RCMA kick off one of the day sessions at their upcoming conference with some interactive, high-energy improvisation comedy.

As Steph DeWaegeneer says in this article, ComedySportz is a great option for churches and faith-based organizations:

“Churches and faith-based organizations are our best repeat business, because the audiences appreciate clean, upbeat humor presented by polished professionals. ComedySportz is one of the few entertainers that can meet this need, whether the audience is a youth group or women’s retreat.”

Letter from a Mother

We got this email recently from a mother who celebrated her daughter’s birthday at one of our ComedySportz shows.  Thanks for the email and positive feedback, Happy Mother!

Hi Jill,

I just wanted to say thank you for your help in making the night a success. The girls absolutely loved the show, just as I hoped. They spent the whole ride home repeating lines they liked, and they have been trying to improvise their own tunes and skits since.

Your cast is terrific – so incredibly clever, funny, and talented. I rarely stopped laughing and, more importantly, neither did the girls. I’m thrilled to have this “PG” version that the kids can enjoy. Both of our experiences there have been top rate, and we will definitely pass along the word! We look forward to our next visit.

Thanks again!
-Happy Mother
