This weekend, ComedySportz Boston welcomes teams from the ComedySportz locations in Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New York City to take part in the first ever ComedySportz Boston Northeast Tournament! Teams will compete against each other for the audience’s laughter in 7 match-ups spread over 4 shows.
There will be a 7:00 and 9:00 show on both Friday and Saturday with different combinations of the teams facing off in the first three shows and a mixer show Saturday at 9:00 featuring performers from all the cities together.
I’ll be competing in the second half of Friday’s 7:00 show which pits Boston vs. Washington DC (the first half is New York City vs. Philadelphia). Afterwards, I’ll be sticking around for the 9:00 show and then checking out both of the shows on Saturday to see how these out-of-towners play and what kind of games they have.
As if seeing some competitive improv wasn’t enough, along with the chance to see performers from other cities coming to Boston, this tournament is special for one more important reason. ComedySportz Boston will be donating $4 from each ticket to the Sean Collier Memorial Scholarship Fund, honoring the police officer who lost his life during the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects a year ago.
