CSz Boston Tryouts FAQ
Is there an age requirement for Tryouts?
Tryouts are open to ages 18 and older.
Is there a minimum improv experience required to attend Tryouts?
Tryouts are open to all backgrounds and experience levels. If you have a background in short-form or short-form game experience that you want to highlight, just let us know in your registration form.
If I haven't seen ComedySportz before, can I still attend Tryouts?
Yes. To set you up for success, though, we recommend you see a ComedySportz match, so you're familiar with the style, content, and audience-centric nature of the ComedySportz format.
What happens at/after Tryouts?
Immediately following your Tryout, we'll contact folks we'd like to see more from, to attend our Call Backs round the following Saturday / Sunday. (August 11, 12, choose from a 2-hour window, same as how the Tryout process works)
If selected to be part of the Professional Roster, you'll enter an 8-week training program designed to immerse you on our format and style of play, while giving you time to explore our team and values.
