Today's Groupon gets you $9 tickets to ComedySportz Theatre, saving you 57% off the regular price of $21. Those are some pretty affordable "ha has," "tee-hees," and "Jiminy Crickets, I just soiled me's knickers." And you will soil your knickers, guaranteed, because Comedy Sportz Theatre was chosen as the #1 Comedy Club in Chicago by City's Best. Sportz were also featured as a Reader's Choice by the Chicago Reader.
The show offers a unique blend of fast, funny and smart improv comedy. The Red and Blue teams battle it out in front of a referee in games the audience selects, and points are awarded based on how hard the improvisers make you laugh. The eternal battle of Red vs. Blue is completely improvised, and the show is never the same twice. You'll have 8 possible performances over the next few months to redeem your Groupon: Thursdays at 8pm on 2/12, 2/19, 2/26 or 3/5, or Saturdays at 6pm on 2/14, 2/21, 2/28, or 3/7. Pick your date, and then schedule a drop-off at the knickers cleaners for the following day.
The theater's location, 929 W Belmont, couldn't be more convenient. Plus, the people have spoken: 60 people have reviewed Comedy Sportz on their Yelp page, giving them an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 possible stars, and offering ringing endorsements like:
- "I couldn't have asked for a better time! The ref was amazing and all the players were killer. The face that they have little interludes and all the actors know what dance to do between each game is FANTASTIC." - Tasha C.
- "I went to a ComedySportz show last week and I have to say it was one of the best groups I've seen on stage in a long time. The way they worked together made you think that you were watching a rehearsed sketch, but it wasn't, it was just awesome improv done by people who know their craft." - Katie T.
Now, if you prefer MasterSportz Theatre, where Charles Barkley wears a powdered wig and reads books like "The Kid Who Only Hit Homers" over his bifocals, then perhaps today is not your deal. But we hope you are not that kind of misguided snob, because the hilarity that ensues when the ComedySportz ref butters up a football, and the Red and Blue skinned teams dive into an oily pile, is one of a kind. These improvised sportz bloopers are not to be missed. And when all the slide whistles and clown horns sound at exactly the right time to correspond with each sportz blooper, you'll be amazed at the precision of this totally improvised performance.
P.S. - ComedySportz's subject matter actually has very little to do with sports or sports bloopers. Very, very little. Just a small amount. The above was Uncle Groupon's idea of a joke. Get it? Boi-yoi-yoi-yoi-yoing!
