A ComedySportz® match features two teams of players competing for laughs and points, with a referee keeping things moving and calling fouls. An average of seven to twelve games are played during a match, drawn from a repertoire of over a hundred improv games. Every match is different, with different players, different games, and different audiences supplying new suggestions. The fans judge the scenes and games and ultimately decide the winner of the match.
