This summer the ComedySportz Theater has six shows opening & we’re thrilled to have them in our space. A stand-up talk show, a new take on Kipling’s The Jungle Book for kids, three hyper-intelligent apes hosting a talent competition, & more! We’re already screaming, “ENDLESS SUMMER!!!!”
Sundays - Octavarius: So Nefarious
Sunday nights at CSz will be owned by the sensational spectacle of Octavarius: So Nefarious. This group of real life college friends undertake the daunting task of writing a brand new show each week based on a new theme. They’ve conquered pirates, musical theater, & Die Hard just to name a few. Watch them this summer as they take on Pokemon, Dungeons & Drag Queens, and much more; and then do their signature improv form: the ‘So Nefarious’!
7pm - Tickets $10
Mondays - Impress These Apes
8 human contestants. 3 hyper-intelligent apes from the future. 1 earthquake device.
Impress These Apes, Chicago’s funniest talent competition is back for its seventh season! You never know what the ape judges will make the pitiful humans do on Monday nights, beginning July 23rd! This season, thanks to Blewt!'s partnership with mega-gazillionaire Mark Cuban, the champion will walk away with a cash prize of ONE-THOUSAND DOLLARS and a grab bag of groovy prizes!
8pm - $10
Wednesdays - The Two Dollar Bill
Love to laugh, but low on cash? We have your solution: The Two Dollar Bill!
It’s really three-shows-in-one consisting of CSz’s newly formed Genesis League where players make up new improv games and anything can happen, Battle-prov where the titular team takes on a new challenger every week, and The Stevens Family Presents: Fun-derdome, an Improv Open Mic where you can join in the fun and play games presented by hillbilly hosts, the Stevens Family!
All for just a cool Jefferson. (He’s the guy on the two dollar bill, right?)
8pm - $2
Thursdays - The Improv Minions of Dr. Rubius Ne’er-do-well
Evil billionaire/mad-scientist, Dr. Rubius Ne’er-do-well and one of his many servants, host a soiree where he hilariously tortures five different minions every week through the most terrifying means possible: improv comedy. Watch as the Doctor finds fiendish ways to make you laugh!
10pm - $5 (FREE for guests of the 8pm home show)
Fridays - But Seriously... The Late Night Stand-Up Talk Show
One of Chicago’s top stand-up comics performs a half-hour set, followed by an interview with a cast member of CSz’s 100 Proof standup show. Jamie Campbell, Sherman Edwards, Kelsie Huff & Homer Mars alternate as hosts for this 13-show series, and the interview segments will be recorded live for a weekly podcast.
Midnight - $10 ($5 for 10pm guests)
Saturdays - CSz Crew Visits The Jungle Book
Mowgli, Baloo, and all of Rudyard Kipling’s loveable characters from The Jungle Book are visited by CSz players through the magic of the imagination machine! This interactive show lets kids become some of the jungle animals as the CSz players retell Kipling’s story and thwart the menacing Expensivo!
Kids love to hate Expensivo...
