This 30th annual improvisational event is fun, fast-paced, family-friendly improvisational comedy, played as a sport. Two teams take turns making up scenes, playing games and singing songs—and the audience votes on which team they like the best. This is serious funny business. This event is sponsored by San Jose State University. Comedy as a sport. Two teams battle each other in an improvised comedy competition based entirely on audience suggestions. A referee calls penalties for boring or crude humor. If a player (or fan) uses crude humor the referee can call the “Brown Bag” foul and place a paper bag over the offenders head. Representatives teams from 25 improvisational comedy groups from across the United States—and Europe—will descend on San Jose June 28 through July 1 for the 2017 ComedySportz World Championships. The four-day event—featuring workshops, public performances, and impromptu improvisation sessions stretching into the early morning hours—kicks off on Wednesday at 7:30pm. San Jose’s own venerable ComedySportz team, founded in 1987 will participate in the opening match. By midnight July 1st, after that evening’s 9:30pm championship match, one team will emerge victorious. A closing night party follows the awards ceremony. [less-]
