Professional Improv Opportunities

TRY-OUTS FOR COMEDYSPORTZ PROFESSIONAL ROSTER & HOUSE TEAMS.  Try-Outs for COMEDYSPORTZ are coming up.  Auditions will happen in a group, and will test your improv game-play skills.  See below for information on audition dates, and the link to sign-up.  Walk-ins are accepted, but please note these auditions fill up very tight, and you may not be seen.


Auditions:  There are no auditions scheduled at this time.


Roster members perform ComedySportz regularly and are given first consideration for our touring company performances, corporate workshops, and events marketing/trade show work. We are a paid professional ensemble seeking the strongest improvisers to help us grow while providing on stage experience that will help propel you to the next level.
