In the interests of preparing Chicago improvisers to do professional level short-form improvisation, the following programs run in repertory with the show ComedySportz and will also be cast from these auditions:
- Battle-prov is the farm team of semiprofessional performers that are on the cusp of being ready for ComedySportz, but are believed to be best suited by time in this program. Battle-prov is a one year commitment and sometimes performers in this program are invited to sit-in for ComedySportz shows.
- Genesis League FALL RUN is a remounting of our popular Summer program of Genesis League. This is program provides real world short-form performance experience to aide performers in improving their improv game.
