What is a ComedySportz match like?

A ComedySportz match features two teams of comedy "act-letes" competing for laughs and points, with a referee keeping things moving and calling fouls. An average of seven to twelve games are played during a match, drawn from a repetoire of over a hundred improv games.

Examples include: In "Shakespeare" a team will improvise a scene inspired by an audience suggestion in Shakespearian style. In "Forward/Reverse" the referee sends the scene back and forth at will, as though scanning a scene in a VCR, sending the actletes into a frenzy.

Every show is different, with different players, different games, and different audiences supplying new suggestions.
