ComedySportz Buffalo

Friday, Jan. 18th - 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.
