Chicago Bosses Win in 25-14 Victory
In a prelude to the Bulls-76’ers first round game of the NBA Playoffs, Chicago’s ComedySportz club on Friday, April 27th, won its match against players from ComedySportz Philadelphia.
In an amazing coincidence, the ComedySportz match between Chicago and Philadelphia was scheduled long before the Bulls and the 76’ers were paired in the playoffs.
Competing for Chicago was Rene Duquesnoy, Jamie Campbell and Rance Rizzutto. Philadelphia’s team was Alli Soowal, Kristen Finger and Jason Stockdale.
The Chicago and Philadelphia clubs are two members of the 21-team World Comedy League, an association of independently owned teams that license the ComedySportz name and concept. Inter-city games are rare, except for the annual ComedySportz World Championship in which teams from across the U.S. and Europe meet in one of the league cities for a four-day competition. This year’s Championship will be held in Chicago at the Athenaeum Theatre from July 18-21 and teams from 19 U.S. cities plus Manchester, U.K. and Berlin, Germany are expected to attend.
