Help The ComedySportz Theatre break the Guinness World Record (tm) for "Most High-Fives in One Hour (individual)".

After each and every performance of ComedySportz, our players line up and high five the audience on their way out of the theatre. It is a simple gesture of gratitude and camaraderie that has been a part of our show for over 23 years. In short, the High Five is part of our culture and now we will bring the "high-five culture" to the City of Big Shoulders. Especially with so much bad news permeating the headlines, we think this is exactly the kind of fun, positive event that Chicago needs.
The current record for 'Most high-fives in one hour (individual)' is held by Boaz Frankel (USA) who high-fived 408 people at the Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland, Oregon on October 23, 2006. C'mon Chicago, we can do better than that!
The ComedySportz Theatre has partnered with The Taste of River North because of the beautiful, open area where the festival takes place. The record breaking attempt will happen on July 18 at 4pm in Erie Park, 630 N. Kingsbury, at Kingsbury and Erie.
Hand sanitizer provided by ComedySportz, Chicago's clean improv comedy. So, show your mid-west spirit by coming together with 500 of your closest friends and slapping hands...because we all deserve a HIGH FIVE.
If you want to help with the attempt, e-mail us at
While the HIGH FIVE event is free, the Taste of River North requests a $5 suggested donation for admittance to the festival.
Proceeds will support the River North Residents Association.
