ComedySportz Buffalo

Friday, Nov. 16th - Saturday, Sep. 5th
$9 – $12; 7:30pm

ComedySportz – Buffalo’s Longest-Running Comedy Show, is improvisational comedy played as a sport. Two teams of professional comedians compete for laughs and points while a referee calls fouls and gets suggestions from you, the loyal fans. At the end of the night, only one team heads home victorious.  Everything is improvised, no scripts or pre-planned scenes. That’s why a ComedySportz match wouldn’t be possible without your suggestions (make sure they’re clean, or the referee will call the Brown Bag Foul on you.)  ComedySportz matches are all ages events – they’re clean enough for grandma and funny enough for a night out with friends.

Sebastian Maniscalco: Stay Hungry Tour

Friday, Feb. 1st
Starting: 7:00 PM

Forever able to seize the moment, never failing to speak his mind and telling it like it is, this is one man who isn’t afraid to put it all out there. Yes, the Chicago-area born, Italian-immigrant-raised comedian behind wildly successful network specials, is that little voice within all our heads. The one we are too timid to unleash. Maniscalco is bearing the burden of our bizarre and head-scratching modern-day world.
