We’re also home to ComedySportz Jersey Shore, a fast paced, interactive improvised comedy show played as a sport. You, the Loyal Fanz, will witness a match of wits and bits as the Red Team and the Blue Team compete for your laughs! The Referee will get suggestions, time the games and call the fouls. After the games have been played, points earned and laughter shared, the trophy is awarded and everyone cheers! Bring your family, co-workers, dates, schools, birthday parties, or just yourself! Rated "E" for Everyone!
Shows are Saturdays at 7:30 pm in the Herbst Theater on the third floor of the Jersey Shore Arts Center. Doors open at 7:00 pm.
