Comedy Sportz Returns This Weekend With 2 Nights of Hilarious Improv Comedy
I talked with the new owner, Bob Kelly, (who started with the troupe in 1999) and Director of Operations, Rick Davis,(who has been with them since 1993) about their exciting new venture bringing back a Quad Cities staple and doubling the troupe size from 25 to almost 50 hilarious performers.
Many were so undeniably funny they simply "couldn't turn them down."
A Brief History of Comedy Sportz
Comedy Sportz started in 1984 in Milwaukee before they started branching out to other areas of the country. In 1990 Denny Hitchock, with Circa 21, brought it to the Quad Cities where it had a very successful run before COVID shut it down.
Comedy Sportz is "improvisational comedy performed at a competitive level." 2 teams, a ref, and you...the audience decides who gets points.
Who is Comedy Sports for?
This is an "all ages" event so bring the family. Consider Comedy Sports for your next date night, though! They've got a full bar, snacks and you can get Bad Boyz Pizza delivered to you at their halftime.
How to Watch?
Every Friday and Saturday matches start at 7 pm at The Spotlight Studio (the downstairs area of The Spotlight Theatre) in Moline, Illinois.
"This new space will offer improv workshops for kids & adults, events, and so much more in addition to hosting weekly matches beginning in November 2022."
