- Comedy Sportz is an offshoot organization of Drama Club that specializes in improv performances. Members of the Comedy Sportz team compete against teams from other high schools as well as perform in friendly scrimmages against alumni and faculty.
- Comedy Sportz matches consist of two halves where each team attempts to score as many points as possible. Since two games are performed by both teams in each half, there are two opportunities in each half for teams to score points. Members of Comedy Sportz not only have to be quick thinkers but need to be able to read their audience, as audience approval is the basis for scoring.
ROLES IN ORGANIZATION
- Students who perform in Comedy Sportz matches are the Players. Players learn the different improv games during practices and perform these games during matches.
