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!
