ComedySportz Chicago: Sensory Friendly Matches
About ComedySportz Chicago: Sensory Friendly Matches
ComedySportz® pits two teams of improv comedians against each other in a battle for points & 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 goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where families can simply relax and be who they are.

A pre-visit social story and preparatory materials for parents and children
Glow sticks raised when a loud noise is coming
Reduction of the sound and bright lights on stage
Low lighting in the theater so patrons can easily and safely move around throughout the performance
Limited crowds and spaced out seating to allow more comfort
3 Designated break spaces
Allowance of tablets and smartphones for communication
Relaxed house rules - feel free to get up, move around, and vocalize as you can feel free to be yourself
