ComedySportz Tickets On Sale

ComedySportz "actletes" prepare for battle.
The Donna Reed Foundation brings the popular ComedySportz team from the Quad Cities back to Denison on Friday, February 11. ComedySportz is competitive team improvisational comedy, played just like a sport. It's complete with a referee, uniforms, artificial turf, peanuts, pennants, and even the National Anthem! Because everything is improvised, no two matches are alike.

Two teams of improv comedy "actletes" battle for laughs and points as they make up scenes, games and songs on the spot. A zebra-striped referee keeps the action moving and gets suggestions from the audience as to what they'd like to see on the playing field. The audience calls fouls and ultimately decides which team is the evening's winner. 

The audience of a typical ComedySportz match has everyone from kids to grandparents and from grade schoolers to college students.  Everyone has a good time and no one gets offended. It's the only entertainment that's funny enough for bachelor parties and clean enough for a church or business group. If you missed them the last time they were in Denison, here's your chance to see what everyone was talking about.

Tickets ($10) for the 7:00 pm performance on February 11 at the Donna Reed Theatre are available by contacting the Foundation office at 712-263-3334 or info@donnareed.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.
