From there, nobody, including our professional improvisers, knows what will happen next. What would it be like to see your life experience performed as a musical or in the style of a film noir, a YouTube “How to” video, or a Disney live-action movie? Come be a part of … Audience Unexpected!

Theatresports is Seattle’s best weekly, high-stakes, competitive improv comedy tournament. Based on audience suggestions, two teams of incredible improvisers rumble, creating exciting fast-paced improv games, stories, scenes, and songs right on the spot and in the moment.

Each dynamic night is created on the fly and is so funny it’s hard to believe the improvisers made everything up on the spot.

Boo the judges loudly as they award points to each team. At the end of the night, one team is declared a winner! The audience member with the best suggestion walks out with a prize and you walk out with new memories.

Come create a show! Leave the stresses of the world outside, join your friends (and a few strangers) to really LAUGH.
