Sporting chance for laughs at comedy antics

Improvised, fast-pace and zany – that just about sums up the kind of comedy you can expect from ComedySportz.

Two teams are at the mercy of the referee’s whistle as they battle it out for the biggest laughs on Saturday... and they will certainly get them!

The players create quick-witted sketches, scenes and songs from whatever suggestions are thrown at them by the audience to create a show that is fast, feelgood and always unpredictably funny.

And it is up to the hard-worked referee to steer the entertainment, call any fouls, and help the audience decide the winner.

ComedySportz UK is the North West’s top improvised comedy troupe and actually began its life at Chorley Little Theatre 12 years ago, so it is appropriate to see it back there tomorrow night.

Performing with them will be two talented young people who were picked from all around the world to perform in an all-star show in Chicago over the summer.

It’s an unusual format, but if you are up for something different, give this talented group of entertainers a try.

If you like Whose Line Is It Anyway and Fast And Loose you’ll love ComedySportz.

And don’t worry about the audience participation part - nobody is dragged kicking and screaming onto the stage.

Tickets are £6 from Malcolm’s Musicland 01257 264362.
