Twitter Followers of @ComedySportzChi Take Improv Games Beyond the Theatre

by Alonso Cisneros

ComedySportz plays host to a number of games on Twitter that encourages its fans join in on writing the jokes. Three days a week a joke premise is dropped by ComedySportz, and it’s up to our legion of Twitter followers to complete the bit.

“World’s Worst

Every Wednesday the audience is challenged to decide on who might be the world’s worst something -- gladiator, motivator, or valentine for examples, amongst a variety of other topics.

Zach Thompson gives us a gentle take on global conquest for the subject of “world’s worst Viking.”

@ComedySportzChi: We paint their villages and compliment their women.

Mel Evans drops us in ringside to witness the “world’s worst wrestler” to hit mankind.

 

Mel Evans @mel_evans@ComedySportzChi: time for my signature closing move – The Gentle Neck Kisses.

“185”

Every Friday the familiar set up of “185 (somethings) walking into a bar” is employed, and it’s up to the audience to put their unique twist on it. In response to “185 snowflakes,” Sean Curran strings together a winter gem:

Sean Curran @seanadelph

@ComedySportzChi: 185 snowflakes walk into a bar, but no one notices because although it sounds like a lot, it really isn’t. Also they melt.

Kelsey VanVoorst economically sets out and destroys with her short response to “185 Lady Gagas.”

@ComedySportzChi: 1 Lady Gaga walks into 185 bars.

 

“Celebrity To Do List”

Every Thursday the audience gets the opportunity to draft the to do lists of various celebrities. Some responses take jabs at their famous subjects and others confound with absurd lines.

Leslie Nesbit offers precious insights into the mind of a comedic genius, for “Jerry Seinfeld’s To Do List.”

 Leslie Nesbit @a27monkey

@ComedySportzChi: Something. I've got to do something today.

Matt Castellvi taps into the higher powers for “Pope Francis’s To Do List.”

 

Matt Castellvi @Lolztellvi

@ComedySportzChi: Chug entire 2 liter of mountain dew…for the Lord.

 

Some of these followers are members of our ensemble and our affiliated leagues Battle-Prov, Genesis League and Legacy and many are just improv fans. They all shoot back with their best one liner responses. These games have proven to be a large draw and lot of laughs, as a collection of inventive responses are tweeted and re-tweeted on ComedySportz’s page. Our Twitter page doubles as the stage for jokes that can range anywhere from non sequiturs about leprechauns to digs on celebrities, giving people the chance to let their personalities shine.                   

Follow us on Twitter and you can enjoy ComedySportz humor even when you’re not at our theater with us. These games hit the web Wednesdays through Fridays and whether it’s crafting the perfect joke and sending it our way or just scrolling through several of the best Tweets, these games take audience interaction to another level.  Just head over to www.twitter.com/ComedySportzChi and follow us to join in.
