Laugh Your Socks Off with ComedySportz—the Ultimate Improv Experience


Fremont, CA—They are here to compete to win your laughter! ComedySportz is not a comedy about sports, but comedy as a sport! This hilarious, interactive, award-winning group of ‘act-letes’ compete for audience laughs while improvising scenes, games and musicals based on audience suggestions. The audience is the point-keeper, voting for the winners and steering the direction of the show. They’re bringing the show to the Smith Center Amphitheatre at Ohlone College Friday, September 9 at 8pm.

ComedySportz started in 1984 in Wisconsin and the sensation began spreading to other cities with about 20 teams now, including teams in the U.K and Germany. The ComedySportz team from San Jose won the ComedySportz World Championship in August 2006. ComedySportz were named Editor’s Choice by The Wave Magazine, and Best Local Theatre and Best Comedy by Metro Magazine. They take stage entertainment to the next level, so give your funny bone a treat! Tickets are available online or at the box office. Please visit, or call the Smith Center Box Office at (510) 659-6031 for more information.
