You know the TV show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
ComedySportz is competitive team improvisational comedy, played just like a sport. It's complete with a referee, uniforms, artificial turf, peanuts, pennants, and even the National Anthem! Because everything is improvised, no two matches are alike. Fans can never see the same thing twice, and they return again and again to cheer on their favorite players.
The Audience calls fouls and ultimately decides which team is the evening's winner. In a typical match, you'll see a team of three or four players, called "actletes", competing against another team of actletes. One team is in red uniforms, the other in blue. A zebra-striped referee keeps the action moving and gets suggestions from the audience as to what they'd like to see on the playing field. The actletes interact with the audience as well, using audience suggestions to determine how the game will be played.
More information is available from The L.A. Team. They are the ones that teach us how to play. For twelve years, ComedySportz has been "oohed and aahed" over in the Media, in everything from college newspapers to Sports Illustrated to The Today Show. Los Angeles is one of more than twenty ComedySportz teams across the country. Together they form the Comedy League of America and compete annually in regional and national tournaments of the League Pro's. Our school is just a high school league, we do the some of the same stuff that the Pro's do just at a high school level.
