ComedySportz Open AuditionsComedySportz

Do you want to be on stage? Have you enjoyed improv comedy? On Thursday, November 17, 2016, at 6:30 p.m., NOLA Comedy Theater will hold open auditions for its ComedySportz improvisational comedy show. ComedySportz is a national improv franchise, with locations in Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and 18 other cities. ComedySportz is game-based, short-form improvisational comedy, played between two teams that compete for points. The format is similar to the television show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" An average of 7 to 12 games are played during a match, drawn from a repertoire of over 100 improv games. NOLA Comedy Theater will be putting on a ComedySportz show every Saturday at 8:00 p.m. with the new cast.
Rehearsal - Trophy Win

Winning the trophy

NO IMPROV EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. We teach you how to play. What you do need is the commitment to come to rehearsal twice a week for 6 weeks, until you are ready to get on stage. Our ComedySportz players are not paid for performing. What you receive is a free education in short-form improv, and the chance to perform onstage in a show that is extremely fun. ComedySportz players love the show. They love the games. Some people do ComedySportz for a living; but most do it for fun, and continue doing it for years, or even decades. Please check this web site for the status of the auditions.
