Champs vs. Pros

With two shows each Friday and three every Saturday, ComedySportz is a prolific provider of comedy in Milwaukee. And because it’s improv, no two are the same – like snowflakes. So ComedySportz is like a snowmaking machine shooting out snowflakes every weekend.

Almost 30 years old, ComedySportz also has cranked out a lot of talent, training thousands of individuals through workshops, high school leagues and a Sunday afternoon recreational league.

Champions of the recreational league not only get their name on a plaque in the ComedySportz lobby. They also get a chance to perform in a prime-time professional ComedySportz match.

And that’s what you’ll see at 10 p.m., Friday, June 21. The Spasmodic Dinosaurs, winners of the 17th rec league season this spring, will take on a professional team in the arena at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St.

The Spasmodic Dinosaurs – including Victoria Feltz Shaw, Eric Wertzler, Pam Zorko, Ben Scharf and Aaron Kohlbeck – also won the fall rec league. So they’re sort of pros at playing with the pros.

Tickets are $5 at the door.
