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:
House Team - is a farm team of performers that are on the cusp of being ready for ComedySportz, but are believed to be best suited by time in this program. A house team is a one year commitment where performers fine-tune their short form skills, create interesting showpieces, and potentially 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.
