ComedySportz College Team is fast-paced, family-friendly improvisational comedy, played as a sport. Two teams take turns making up scenes, playing games and singing songs – and the audience votes on which team they like the best. It's all presided over by a referee, who keeps things moving, calls the ComedySportz College Team fouls and takes suggestions shouted out by the audience before each game.

in American theatre—die.
