ComedySports was started by Dick Chudnow in 1984 in Milwaukee. It`s a format
of competitive improv comedy that resembles Keith Johnstone
. The format is
currently played by a dozen-plus teams all over the USA, united in the Comedy
League of America.
In a ComedySportz show 2 teams complete for points given by the audience. A
referee oversees the match, times the games, calls fouls and gets audience
suggestions. A match consists of something like 7 to 12 games, drawn from
a repertoire of over a hundred improv games (you`ll find most of these games in
the Games section of Improv Encyclopedia).
In terms of gimmicks, you have the `brown bag foul`, which is a brown paper
bag placed over the offending player`s head.
