The History


ComedySportz Richmond has been entertaining audiences in the River City since 1996! Our humble roots were planted in several fine RVA establishments including Features Dinner Cinema and Damon's in Innsbrook. In 2001, we opened our own theatre on Staples Mill Road - originally called Comedy Alley, and ultimately renamed as the ComedySportz Improv Theatre. It was the only theatre ever in Richmond dedicated to the art of improv comedy. In March of 2009, we had to close our doors, and we found a temporary home with the wonderful folks at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen until early 2010, when the search for a new home began...

Our NEW Theatre!



Heeding the cry of our most loyal fans, the ComedySportz Richmond team rebuilt! Our new theatre opened in April 2011 in the Gold's Gym Plaza at West Tower, just about a mile west of Parham Road at 8906 West Broad Street! We're BACK, offering shows for all ages every weekend, plus a season filled with local improv troupes and comic performers, original shows, theatrical productions and so much more!

And we just keep growing! Our training center has grown to an exciting and bustling hot spot for improv classes for all ages. We offer training classes throughout the year, Kidz Camps every summer, and even the on-going CSz Leagues, featuring performers of all ages! And we continue to be named Style Weekly's Best of Richmond!

Our versatile space is avilable for parties, meetings and events! We have a 100 seat capacity, and can arrange chairs and tables to custom fit your needs! With a stage, concessions, and a state-of-the-art sound system, we have everything you need to make your event at ComedySportz Improv Theatre an amazing success!
