What is Comedy Sportz?
The ComedySportz High School League® is the largest, most successful improv training program for high school students in the country. The High School League® empowers students to create their own theatre and nourishes their communication skills through improvisational theatre workshops and performances. It encourages their individuality and provides the forum to succeed or fail in a safe environment that combines showmanship and sportsmanship. The League provides an extracurricular activity that goes beyond stage work into everyday situations. And the students just think they’re having fun!

ComedySportz Los Angeles has established varsity teams in schools across five counties in Southern California, where “winning” is the least important part of the game. The High School League is low-cost, terrific theatrical training and a great way to fundraise.
Who Should Join Comedy Sportz HSL?
Seriously. The Comedy Sportz HSL improv training is great for:
- Developing self-confidence
- Learning about character development
- Improving your public speaking
- Becoming a better performer
