INDY’S COMEDY SHOW | COMEDYSPORTZ
WHAT IS A COMEDYSPORTZ MATCH LIKE?
Two teams battle for laughs and points as they make up scenes, games and songs on the spot, in the spirit of TV’s Whose Line Is It Anyway? A referee governs the action, calling fouls, and keeping the match moving at a blistering pace. An average of seven to twelve games are played during a ComedySportz match, drawn from a list 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 games and ultimately decide the winners and losers. ComedySportz also asks willing volunteers to join us for a game or two each match, and we make them look great!
WHO SHOULD I BRING TO COMEDYSPORTZ?
We recommend ages 4 – 104. ComedySportz is perfect for dates, celebrations, a night out on the town, or even quality time with the family. (Kids love it as much as grown-ups!) The audience of a typical ComedySportz match contains everyone from kids to college students to parents to grandparents. Everyone has a good time and no one gets offended. If a Player steps beyond the boundaries of good taste, the “brown bag foul” (a brown paper sack placed over the offending player’s head) will be called to set things straight. ComedySportz even works for tough-to-please business groups.
HOW LONG DOES A COMEDYSPORTZ MATCH LAST?
An average ComedySportz match lasts about 90 minutes
CAN I BOOK IN ADVANCE?
Yes! You may purchase seats for an upcoming match online or by calling the box office at (317) 951 – 8499. Subject to availability, you can also purchase seats at the door the night of the match. Door tickets go on sale 30 minutes before the start of the match, but the only way to guarantee seats is to buy online. If you’re interested in bringing a large group (10 or more), having at birthday party at a match, or want to book a private event, simply contact our Box Office at (317) 951 – 8499.
DO YOU GUYS TELL JOKES ABOUT SPORTS?
Nope! This is comedy played as a sport. We’re improvisers, so we make up scenes and songs on the spot based on your suggestions. If you suggest “soccer,” we’ll incorporate soccer into the scene, but if you suggest “Mitochondrion, the powerhouse of the cell” we’ll do a scene about that, too. The “Sportz” part of our name comes from the competitiveness – there are two teams who try to out-funny each other for votes from you, the Loyal Fans! There are points, a referee, even fouls… but as with all sports, there is only one winner.
IS FOOD AND / OR ALCOHOL SERVED?
Yes! We have a full food menu similar to what you’d find at a ballpark. From light snacks like popcorn and soft pretzels, to cheeseburgers and chicken sandwiches, we’ve got your hunger covered. We proudly serve Coke products from our fountain, and (more importantly?) we have a fine selection of domestic and craft beers, cider, and wine. Our nachos are the best deal on the Ave!
WILL I GET PICKED ON AT YOUR SHOW? CONVERSELY, CAN I HECKLE PERFORMERS?
No. This isn’t stand-up so heckling isn’t really our thing – instead we prefer to engage with you. A ComedySportz match is interactive – we ask for suggestions and occasionally volunteers – but we never force anyone to participate. Promise. Think of it more like theater than stand-up.
IS COMEDYSPORTZ GOOD FOR GROUPS? (WORK / SCHOOL / CHURCH / BIRTHDAY PARTY / BACHELORETTE PARTY / TOUR GROUP)
Yes! ComedySportz sets the bar high; everyone laughs, everyone has a good time. In addition to welcoming many different groups at at ComedySportz match, we’ve done matches for groups from 10-3000+ all over the country. We can tailor our event to your space, time, and content requirements. We do holiday shows, fundraisers, church functions, bachelorette parties, and just about anything you can imagine. Call our sales office at (317) 951 – 8499 and let us help you customize your next event.

“Last night was my first time at ComedySportz, and it was amazing!!! So much fun that my husband and I played our own rendition of ‘What you got’ this morning before work. We will definitely be back again soon!”
“Very nice small venue. I felt like I was getting to know the people we were there to see, rather than just someone making me laugh for an hour and a half. Very nice staff and good food at fair prices. I would definitely go back to CSz again!”
“We were there this past weekend for a bachelorette party the show was awesome. The performers were super nice they got my sister up on stage as the bride to be then after the show was over they took a big group pic with us. We will definitely come back this was my second visit. I live a hour away but its worth the drive.”
“It is so much fun! I love it! It is always different, I have been many times and its always as great as the last time! I would highly recommend it to anyone and families of all ages too!”
“Took our 10 year old son to the family friendly show on Friday at 7:30. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the show and not worry about something “adult” being said. My son loved it, joined in the fun and is asking to go back. Thanks for a great night!”
“Such a fun thing to go to! I’ve been 4 times now and will continue to go back for fun times and laughter! I brought 7 people with me yesterday (6 had never been before) and they all loved it! Will be returning soon!”
“Inexpensive and clean fun! Our kids (10 & 13) enjoyed it as much as we did. They especially liked being able to vote for the winner of each round, and of course the snacks! This was our first visit and we’ll be back soon!”
“Definitely something everyone should do at least once. Very fun night watching local talent go head-to-head at improv. Check it out. Great choice for a date if you want to surprise someone with something new.”
“Love this place! You get a different experience each time you go. It’s a hidden gem in downtown Indy.”
“I can’t wait to come back with my other two sons and then again with my boyfriend for a date night. Thank you ComedySportz for such a fun, interactive, wholesome and funny evening!”
“Absolutely great way to unwind with your family after a hectic day. Have a drink, some laughs, and they even do a great job involving and encouraging children in attendance. Everyone should experience this gem Mass Ave gem!”
“HOW did I not know ComedySportz existed until this year? This is THE spot for hilarious improv.”
“A definite hidden gem in Indianapolis. We had never heard of this place. My husband was browsing to find things to do in Indy. This sounded unique and fun. It was wonderful! A lot like the old show “who’s line was it anyways”. The staff was very entertaining and courteous. There is PG show around 7:30pm. The adult show starts at 10 PM. They also were very well organized, and got the audience involves a lot! It was wonderful. Will be going back!”
“It was hilarious! By the end of the show, my cheeks literally were cramping, because I was laughing and smiling so much.”
“If you feel like a hearty laugh, skip the stand-up clubs and head straight to CSz. This talented improv group is funny and engaging (but it’s not pressured participation, if you’re a wallflower), and every person I’ve introduced to CSz has asked when we’re going back for another round.”
“Went here initially for a teambuilding event at work and had the best time. Good, clean fun for everyone. Really neat concept of having the two teams, but in the end the audience wins no matter what. Obviously it’s a different experience every time, so there’s always something to look forward to.”
“We visited Indianapolis with family for a few days and looked for fun things to do. We stumbled across this show and had a blast. The kids (11 and 15) really enjoyed it but it was just as funny for adults. The comedians are very talented and worked their skills to the entire audience.”
“Our son loves comedy shows, so for his 14th birthday we took him and three of his friends to ComedySportz. We had never been before, but it had been recommended by a friend. Close atmosphere was awesome with lots of audience participation. Great laughs. Food and drink were super reasonable. Seemed cheaper than other comedy clubs. We’ll definitely go again!”
“We went to comedy sportz and had an absolutely great time with our family from ages 4-69! Lots of cheering & lots of laughs. Good clean fun. We went on a Thursday cheap tickets night, the place wasn’t very full but the comedians gave it their all. Can’t wait to go back again with friends!! Highly recommend.”
