What You'll Get
Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon for ComedySportz San Antonio, which performs at the Acting Up Creative Drama Academy on Bandera Road. Choose from one of the following ticket options:
- $5 for one general admission ticket (a $10 value)
- $20 for five general admission tickets (a $50 value)
ComedySportz’s troupe of all-star laughletes is considered to be not only comedic, but also to have good sportsmanship, since there’s no swearing allowed, the subject matter is suited for all ages, and the show is monitored by a referee who calls offense fouls and hides unfunny heads in a shameful brown bag. Take a friend, relative, significant other, or the relative of a friend’s significant other to see two teams of expert improvisers fight for laughs through an average of 7– 12 scenes, games, and songs based on audience suggestions. At the end, the crowd votes to decide which team wins the honor of dumping life-size cardboard cutouts of the other team into an active volcano.
Improv is fun to watch not only because the sounds of laughter (polite chuckles, inside-out hiccoughing, window-busting guffaws, funnyrumbles, and whoops) have been known to cure the surliest lassitude, but also because it’s so imaginative and interactive. No two shows are ever the same, and watching a group of people think on their toes (a typical improv troupe has seven to 94 toes) is better than losing to children at Scrabble.

Though there are limited reviews for ComedySportz's San Antonio location, five Citysearchers give the Houston location a perfect five-star average. Yelpers give the San Jose location an enthusiastic 4.5-star average:
- This show is great for all ages - from bachelor parties to kid's birthday's. Great fun! The laughs kept coming the whole show. The comics on stage were so fast thinking, I couldn't believe it! Highly recommended! - reneegjere, Houston location
- ComedySportz is a family show that's all about bringing the funny without bringing the four-letter words. - Drew S., San Jose location
