A cast of some of Australia’s best-known performers face crazy comedy challenges and ad-lib their way to glory.

Directed by the original creator of Celebrity Theatresports Julie Dunsmore, with MCs Jay Laga’aia (The Lion King, Star Wars) and impro legend Monique Dykstra, musical genius improviser Bryce Halliday and celebrity guest judges including Theatresports doyen Lyn Pierse, this is improvised comedy at its biggest & best! And there will be special appearances and guest challenges from more hilarious celebs including actor and comedian Kitty Flanagan (Utopia) and others. Watch this space…
If you’ve never seen Theatresports® before then you really don’t know what it’s like to be scared scriptless! It’s on-the-spot, seat-of-the-pants comedy, performed at the highest level of skill with miraculous comedy timing. In a series of hilarious games, challenges and comedy skits – from songs and poems to scenes in all kinds of styles – teams compete for audience laughs and the judges’ scores. It’s terrifying, it’s brilliant and it always plays to a sell-out crowd!
