For $75, today's side deal gets you six improv classes at The ComedySportz Theatre in Lakeview (a $200 value). Each course term lasts six weeks, and classes take place once a week at ComedySportz's training center. Check out the class schedule; the current term began November 1.
ComedySportz's roster of comedy courses caters to six different skill levels. At the end of every term, students in each class level perform for friends and family.
Improv isn’t just for aspiring comedians and Colin Mochrie—these skills come in handy for any situation where you’re forced to think fast (speed dating, job interviews, Swedish massages). Plus, laughter is the only clinically proven medicine, so it'd be instrumental in fighting off grave illnesses such as dropsy, the clampers, and chowder-fists. Round up your friends and see who's funny, or overcome your fear of strangers and go alone.
Although there are few online reviews of ComedySportz classes, Citysearchers give it an average of 5 stars and Yelpers give it a four-star average. Centerstage reviewers also commend the performances:
- The improvisers were smart, witty, and FUNNY!! I have seen a lot of improv outside of Chicago and I have to say the ComedySportz performers had true skills and talent. – Sara, Centerstage Chicago
- These guys are hysterical…If you want to see up and coming performers, this is the place to do it. – sbelle, Citysearch
