ComedySportz Theatre

When: March 7-April 25 2009

Part of a national chain of comedy clubs, this company is known for quick improv games (think Whose Line Is It Anyway?), but it also stages long-form improv. LCD screens and sophisticated lighting and sound systems amplify the sports-style improv of the company's eponymous production, ComedySportz. The show's structured as a competition, with a vigilant referee, between two teams performing multiple games that require audience participation. The formula is practically foolproof: players may flash their quick wits in winning responses, but they're even funnier when they fail. --Ryan Hubbard
