The not-so-gentlemen and women of PBS' Downton Abbey and its predecessor Upstairs, Downstairs are raked over the improv coals by the clever spoofmasters at ComedySportz, just in time for the British drama's season premiere. Mannerhouse Manor parodies these popular TV shows, making good sport out of the soapy shenanigans of the many lords, ladies and servants, who're all in danger of suddenly being killed off by a quick illness or car accident. The Edwardian-inspired satire is all unscripted and historically, quite hilarious. Learn More

SciFi-based improv, not parody, so don't go searching for Star Trek or Star Wars references -- they're rare if they exist at all. The performers came up with a few funny parts, but the best were when you saw the actors themselves come through. Like their relief when just getting rid of an obnoxious character-defining smoking pipe, or how a pet that was first a dog was mistakenly later referred to as a cat, so it eventually became a canine/feline mix. (This is science fiction, after all!)
A return engagement of ComedySportz’s long-form improvised sci-fi extravaganza, where the audience decides who plays what role. Action, intrigue and jumpsuits abound! Earth is dead. Funny lives…in space!
