A great fun night out

Took the kids (13 & 16) out to see the 8.00pm show which they market as suitable for everyone. It was fantastic. A whole lot of fun and most highly recommended.

2 of my adult children and I attended an 8pm show on Saturday. We were all expecting it to be kind of like a Who's line is it anyway type show, but it really wasn't. (We are big fans of that show, and always have a lot of laughs when we watch it.) We were disappointed. We had read the... More

This show is clever, fast-paced and very entertaining! I would highly recommend this show to people of all ages. Excellent G-rated comedy. You can purchase beverages before & during the show.

Attended 6pm Saturday show. Some kids in the audience. Two teams of 3 improvisers each - fast paced games set up with audience suggestions, moderated by "referee" with performances judged by applause. Pianist contributes to the improv. Second-city caliber show with more improvisation at less cost, in a more comfortable theater. No one pushes you to buy drinks either.

Our family visited ComedySportz on a Friday evening and had a blast. All of the material was family friendly - my sons 12 and 9 loved it. Great value - highly recommend it.

We took a group of teens here and chose the Comedy Sportz show. Totally clean, so much so that you will get docked in points if you get even close to inappropriate. Great staff, totally awesome venue. Recommend!

Ideal for families with younger kids who are not older enough for Second City or other improvs that are more adult themed. We had 3 young teens and 2 12 year-olds in the group and they enjoyed it very much.

I've been told it is incredibly hard to do clean improv... but they pull it off. With two teams, a ref, announcer and a live keyboardist, there's plenty here to keep your attention. Audience participation is encouraged, but not forced (I've seen this happen before). Go, enjoy!

We happened across this comedy club. The kids love comedy but cannot always take them to shows due to inappropriate material. The audience was used through the show and the kids loved it. Highly recommend for kids ages 8 and up. High energy and lots of fun!

I thought it was really good. A few of the games fell flat, but most were very funny and my students loved it. The family friendly show made it appropriate for my 13-year-old students.
