Chicago is famous for its iconic skyline, deep-dish pizza and a comedy scene that is the best. From the champions of improv to the legendary Second City, Chicago is the destination if you’re looking for some sidesplitting action.

If you enjoy comedy improvisation, you'll want to visit the ComedySportz Theatre. ComedySportz is the longest running improv show in Chicago. Just so you know, the show isn't about sports at all. It's literally improv comedy played as a sport!
Two comedy teams, one wearing red and another wearing blue, compete for laughs. A referee hosting each show calls out to you, the audience, to shout back your suggestions. The comics feed off this audience participation. The teams have to come up with whole scenes and make up songs on the spot, all based on suggestions from the audience. The audience gets to choose the winner at the end. The act prides itself on keeping the language clean, so this is the perfect comic act to bring the family to.
