The ComedySportz Theatre’s wildly popular night of comedy offering three improv shows for just $2 will return Wednesday, June 19 and run weekly until next Spring. It will feature a brand new concept for the 10 PM open mic improv jam – The After Party.  The After Party is an improvised party with a new “party” theme every week (a birthday party, a bar-b-que, a quinceanera, a cocktail party) where both audience and players, led by members of ComedySportz’ main ensemble, are encouraged to try out improv in a fun and supportive environment.


Returning to open up the evening at 8 PM is Genesis League – with a new cast playing new, ground-breaking short-form improv games. After that, Battle-Prov moves from its late night Thursday slot to takes the stage at 9 pm. Improv comedy's next generation takes on challengers from the Chicago comedy world.  Each show features a rotating cast, a special guest team, and plenty of laughs!


After seeing all that great improv, you may be inspired to take the stage and give improv a try yourself in The After Party, or just enjoy the party while others perform.


As before, the whole night is just $2! Come when you can and stay as long as you like. Our doors and our full service bar open at 7:30 pm!  Reservations are not necessary, call 773-549-8080 if you have any questions.

ComedySportz Chicago's newest show to offer weekly improv riffs on TV's Law and Order Sundays at 8:30 pm through August 25.

CriminalMischief-comp1Crime doesn’t pay, but that isn’t stopping ComedySportz Chicago’s newest house team LEGACY from taking the stage at the ComedySportz Theatre (1229 W Belmont)! On June 2 at 8:30 pm team LEGACY presents Criminal MIschief - a new, never-before-seen form of improvisation fueled by audience suggestions in the theme of the television show Law & Order. Each week a new criminal will be revealed, captured, and tried in comedy court by the audience – sworn in as the jury for the evening.


In the fall of 2012, ComedySportz Chicago tapped former ComedySportz players from around the country now living in Chicago to form LEGACY – one of the most dynamic and accomplished assortment of improvisers in Chicago assembled from cities across the United States including Indianapolis, New Orleans, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Richmond, and Washington DC.


CRIMINAL MISCHIEF is part of ComedySportz Chicago’s new Sunday “Double-Scoop” lineup, with the return of the Dual Duel at 7 pm, and the premiere of CRIMINAL MISCHIEF at 8:30 pm. Tickets for CRIMINAL MISCHIEF are $5. The show begins at 8:30 pm following The Dual Duel at The ComedySportz Theatre, 929 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago. For tickets call 773-549-8080 or visit


The Show

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These could be their stories, though it is would be incredibly unlikely. Fueled by audience suggestions, each week a new a crime will be committed, solved, and prosecuted through improvised games and scenes.  Never rehearsed, and entirely unscripted, witness as these talented improvisers explore the nature of crime and punishment and ask that though Justice may be blind, does she have a sense of humor?
