Classic TheatreSports is the foundation format of all improv comedy.
Improvisers are the daredevils of the theatre world – writing the script, directing themselves and acting in character all in the moment, nothing is pre-determined. They are ‘play-making’ on the spot much like a jazz musician riffs on a musical theme.
Classic TheatreSports consists two ‘teams’ of improvisers competing against one another in rapid ‘Short Form Games’ (scenes) based on audience suggestions to move the action forward. The scenes are scored by audience judges and the team with the most points at the end of the match reigns supreme.
It is the quick-witted, fast-paced sprint race of the comedy world. The results are always unpredictable, high-energy, hilarious and very entertaining – no two twos can ever be the same.
