Before you audition, we highly recommend coming and seeing both ComedySportz and the Blue Show. (If you see both shows in one night, the Blue Show is half price.) At the end of each show, all the players gather at the front door to thank our guests for coming at the ends of each show. Let us know you are coming to audition - and feel free to ask any questions!

TO PREPARE FOR AUDITIONS. . .

~ see a ComedySportz show
~ see a Blue Show

~ bring a photo of yourself to help us remember you
. .(headshots are not necessary, but welcome)
~ bring a print out of your Name, Email, Cell phone (or best phone to reach you) and any stage performance or training experience you have. You will also be given a paper on which to write down your previous stage and training experience if you don't have a resume.
~ dress comfortably so that your clothing won't restrict your movement.
THE AUDITION . . .
Doors to the Comedy Spot will open at 7:30pm.
The audition will begin at 8:00pm.
This will be an open audition where we will run you through a variety of games we perform in our shows.
For the audition: keep your material clean so that we know you can perform a ComedySportz show. (Our improvisers perform in both shows, not just The Blue Show.)
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR . . .
  • Confident performers who can listen and react.
  • We will be looking to see how well your words and actions onstage show that you are building upon the offers made by your scene partners.
  • We are looking for strong character and scenework - not forced jokes at the expense of the story. And remember, we are also looking to see that you can be entertaining, and clean.
New to improv? Not a problem. If you can play well with others onstage - we can teach you the games. Just portray confidence onstage and listen and react to the people onstage with you.
Already performing with a troupe? No worries, you are only expected to perform as often as your schedule allows. We highly encourage our improvisers to perform with as many local groups as possible.
AFTER THE AUDITION . . .
We will email everyone who auditions by 12pm Wednesday.

People who are asked back will then be put on an up to 8-week training/probation period during which new members are encouraged to come to as many practices and shows as possible.

WEEKLY PRACTICES:
are every Tuesday 7:30pm @ the Comedy Spot.
