ComedySportz Sensory Friendly Matches

ComedySportz pits two teams of improv comedians against each other in a battle for points and laughs, based entirely on audience suggestions. And now, it’s custom designed to be more accessible for individuals and families who will benefit from a relaxed and supportive environment. The sensory-friendly performance is specially designed for children and adults with sensory-input disorders, autism, or other developmental or cognitive disabilities, as well as families and caretakers.

ComedySportz promise a judgment-free, fun experience for the entire family. Families can participate in a pre-visit social story and are offered preparatory materials. CSz will be keeping the audience lights on, but at a dimmed level, and will lower the volume of their speakers to limit noise sensitivity, but encourage audience members to bring headphones if necessary. The ref will be using a whistle or other noise to signal a transition, and there will be a signal to the audience to warn them that a potentially jarring moment is about to happen via glow sticks.

In addition to the Sunday, Sept. 8 performance, CSz will host additional sensory-friendly performances on Sunday, Dec. 29, Jan. 26, 2020, May 24, 2020, Sept. 6, 2020 and Dec. 20, 2020 at 2 p.m.
