In ComedySportz's Unscripted series, audience suggestions refresh well-worn classics with an unexpected element. The skilled improvisors tackle a beloved fairytale with Aladdin: Unscripted, perhaps giving Jasmine someone else to pursue instead of her Prince, or swapping Genie's wish for freedom to another wish altogether – all based on the whims of the audience.
At ComedySportz, the spontaneity of improv humor marries the competitiveness of athletics in weekly shows that churn out laughs for roughly 100 minutes each. During a match, two opposing teams of comics square off as a referee presides. The teams launch into sketches and routines fueled by audience suggestions, much like on the TV shows Whose Line Is It Anyway? and World News with Diane Sawyer. Since random, casual outbursts are so integral to the show, no two performances are the same, and many fans check the lineup to see when their favorite funnypeople take the stage next.
