ComedySportz Quad Cities is a fun evening for the whole family (well, maybe not the babies, but most everyone else). Two teams of comedians square off in a competition of funny. The blue team and the red team compete in a variety of improv games with the audience judging the funniest team in each round. At the end of all the rounds they tally the points and the best team wins! Additional humor is added by the referee, “Mr. Voice” from the sound booth, and hilarious memes and gifs on the big screen.
