On Wednesday, June 11, ComedySportz will welcome 3-time gold medalist and WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes to the theater to compete in The Dunk Contest of the Century of the World.

 

Swoopes, voted one of the Top 15 Players in WNBA history and the current head coach of the Loyola Ramblers, will be competing against 5’5” local comedian (and Sonic House Team ensemble member) Ben Larrison in a one-night-only slam dunk contest on a Fisher-Price children’s basketball hoop. After the competitors are introduced and the stage has been set, a panel of special guest judges will help determine a winner as this famed professional athlete and a 5’5” comedy person do battle in the ultimate test of will: slam dunking. Come see a hilarious and epic showdown, as pure skill meets comedy in a night guaranteed to have fans on their feet and cheering.

 

Doors open at 7:30pm and the show begins at 8:00pm.  Tickets are only $5 and can be purchased by calling the ComedySportz box office at 773-549-8080 or by clicking here.
