Plan your best group event in Richmond, VA
Kids love to learn and be silly. Improv allows them to do both! ComedySportz Richmond has been making Richmonders laugh since 1996. Their troop has won "Best Local Comedy Group" by Style Weekly Magazine 4 times, and has won "Best Comedy Club" and "Best Performing Arts Company" awards from Virginia Living Magazine from 2012-2015.
Their signature birthday event is a competitive improv match, which is custom-tailored for the occasion. ComedySportz is comedy played as a sport. But whether or not it is actually about any sports is up to you!
Through improv games, the birthday boy or girl will get to be the center of the action. There's no telling where the silliness will lead -- the inside jokes could last a lifetime.
ComedySportz Richmond will put on a private ComedySportz For Kids match, recommended for kids 7 years old and up.
Public Shows at the CSz Richmond theater

A: 7 years old for kids parties.
Q: Are your shows appropriate for any age?
A: ComedySportz matches are always for everyone, no matter what age. Other shows may be customized for the adult crowd.
Q: I'm an introvert. Is this only for extroverts?
A: Our Improv comedy approach is perfect for both introverts AND extroverts alike. People sometimes think that they will be the butt of the joke, but that is not the case. Improv comedy helps people shine, whether they talk and sing and joke the whole time or don't say anything at all.

"As I run a small business in town, I hired ComedySportz to conduct "Communication" training with my Sales team. We had the sales meeting on-site, and then adjourned to the theater for two hours of interactive exercises. What a blast...and wow did I learn alot about some of our team-members. These are people that I've worked with for years, and I finally saw them break out of their shell. If you're looking for a fresh and entertaining spin on the same old boring meetings you've been having, call these folks!" - Jack Holtrop, ABM Building Services
