This year the 2018 ComedySportz World Championship takes place in Los Angeles with over 25 teams competing at the El Portal Theatre in NoHo from June 28 through June 30, 2018. It’s not comedy about sports, it’s comedy played as a sport, complete with referee, Astroturf, a ballpark organ and the national anthem. The audience helps pick the games, yells suggestions and ultimately decides the winners. Always bouncing from the mildly cerebral to slapstick, ComedySportz appeals to all ages. Competing teams come from across the United States and the United Kingdom for three days of training and then begin the tournament matches on June 28.
