ComedySportz World Championships

Through July 23


Before we get started on this preview, I need you to shout out a situation. A lecture? A walk in the park? OK, you in the third row, what did you say? A team competition? OK, we’ll go with that. Next, I need a hobby or job, something people do. Could be doctors, could be lawyers, whatever. I heard “improvisational teams from around the world”—comic performers adept at making people laugh without using a script. Good. Now, finally, I need a place. The zoo? A ballpark? What’s that? OK, an Indianapolis architectural treasure doubling as a theater.

Perfect. Now, let’s see what happens when these elements are brought together. (I’ll be helping judge the finals on Saturday.) Want to see for yourself? Details here.
