The ComedySportz Theatre hosts our main stage show 'ComedySportz' every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 'ComedySportz' is improv comedy with performers split up into two teams who perform short scenes, song and games based on audience suggestions. It's not ABOUT sports, it IS a sport - the players compete for the audience's approval. It's hilarious improv comedy that is appropriate for all ages and has been making people laugh for 25 years.The ComedySportz Theatre also hosts late night shows and other comedy shows throughout the week. These additional shows include stand-up and sketch comedy as well as improv, and some are recommended for audiences 18 and over.

We bring 70+ students to this show every year and the comedians never disappoint. The show is really funny and gets the audience fully involved. The teen oriented show version (they also have an adult version) is a fantastic way to give teens a flavor for nightlife without worry.

In the interest of full disclosure, I perform improv back home in Tucson. A reader of this review may think I'll either be biased to a good review to or to be harsh, but I promise to stay objective: This was a really great show!! (Objective enthusiasm) It was a smaller audience, which can sometimes mean low energy- alas it... More

My husband and I enjoyed our evening at CSZ on a recent trip to Chicago. The players were energetic and funny. My husband even got to join in one of the games. My favorite aspect was knowing the humor would not slide off into the blue or crude. Terrific fun! I hope to return someday.

My daughter and I were travelling and decided to see a comedy show. Comedysportz was a great activity! We were highly entertained and the night went by fast. I'd have liked to see some more selection of appetizers. They mostly had candy and nuts. Perhaps popcorn, french fries or sliders would be nice. The staff was friendly but not overbearing.

This is comedy meets capitalism. By that I mean 2 groups of comedians will compete for the audience's approval in order to win. No comedy place I've been to gets more audience-centric than this. Not only does the audience choose the winner, but they are also summoned to the stage (whether they want to or not) to be a part... More

This theatre is located about a block from the Belmont stop on the Red Line. ComedySportz is a franchise, and we had seen shows in other cities. Given Chicago's reputation for comedy, we expected a top notch show. For $25/ ticket, it was just OK. Since the premise is teams competing in improv, the quality of show you get depends... More
