Boise, ID - CSz Boise, Home of ComedySportz, and Treasure Valley Community Television (TVCTV), Channel 64, joined together in collaboration to bring more clean entertainment options to everyone. The public is invited to come celebrate this weekend, August 24 & 25th.
CSz Boise moved from their old location on Emerald Street into TVCTV’s studio at 6225 West Overland Road. With some fresh paint and bustling activity, the new space provides a better experience and a more convenient location for fans of CSz Boise’s ComedySportz. TVCTV hopes to increase public awareness and tap into local talent for fresh new content. Also, TVCTV and CSz Boise look forward to opportunities to work together on projects in order to broadcast more entertainment options on TVCTV’s channel 64 and online.
CSz Boise, a local non-profit, recently celebrated five years of bringing their award winning ComedySportz show to the treasure valley. ComedySportz is a unique form of competitive improvisational comedy accessible to everyone. Each ComedySportz show consists of a match with two teams, red and blue, battling it out for the laughs and applause of that night’s loyal fans. There is a referee that keeps the match moving, taking suggestions, and keeping things clean. That’s right, ComedySportz is clean and funny for everyone.
What fans have to say:
“ComedySportz is one of my favorite places to be on the weekends! The show has it all - family values, great improv games, and friendly rivalry. The theater is intimate, the laughs are plenty and it's definitely one of a kind. If you've never been, you're missing out!” -Paige Leone
“Our family loves ComedySportz Boise not only because the improv players are hilarious, but because they truly love what they do: making people of all ages laugh and have fun! The camaraderie they have keeps us coming back every Friday and Saturday night! The only bad thing about ComedySportz Boise is when each match ends and we are forced to go through withdrawals until the next time.” -Angela Manning

As part of the grand opening celebration this weekend a team from CSz Provo is coming to Boise to compete on Friday the 24th of August.
