If you think that you’d need to head to Manchester to be able to take in a comedy show you’d be mistaken. I’m here to tell you this episode about a great family friendly comedy night that’s based right here in our town of Ramsbottom. It’s only here until September more viewings, but you could see it FOR FREE, just keep listening to find out how!
This month I caught up with ComedySportz who were putting on a show for the lovely Ramsbottom Civic Hall patrons.
Let me start by saying this, although this is a family friendly show, don’t let that put you off, it is very funny and the teams have a great rapport with each other, which you’d expect given some of them have been doing this for 15 years!
If you’ve ever seen Whose Line is it Anyway (and if you haven’t, click the link to the left to see some on YouTube) then you’ll have an idea what it’s like. Essentially there are two teams who are battling it out for points from the referee.
There are many rounds and the team get to choose which game they play beforehand, a little like Crystal Maze but less mazy and certainly less Crystaly.
The sample I provided at the start of this episode was of the round they call “New Choice” where the teams improve but at any point the referee can blow the whistle causing the player who just spoke to have to choose something else to say.
It really was a great night, and if you’re thinking of going to see them, here’s two things to check, firstly here are some directions to Ramsbottom Civic Hall although if you’re local, you probably don’t need them…
