Striving to benefit La Costa Canyon’s theatre department, once a  year students and teachers work together to provide an audience-interactive show filled with laughter that can allure any age group. For $5 or $7, you can find yourself in the crowd of a Comedy Sportz game: where dedicated players showcase their wit through various rounds of improvisational games. Both teachers and students involved can agree that while difficult, Comedy Sportz has become a great part of their lives.

Sophomore Grace Galloway explains the work put forth to create a fun show for the audience as the new vice president of Comedy Sportz this year.

“It’s hard to run the practices because I actually have to be a part of planning them… you have to get the ref, you have to get the people to play in the game,” Galloway said. “But, it’s a nice break from school to just come have fun and laugh.”

James Teague, a Spanish teacher here at LCC, explains how Comedy Sportz is rewarding for both teachers and students on campus in terms of academics.

“Through the course of Comedy Sportz and working with the students over the years,” Teague said, “I learned that some of the pieces of storytelling have a different way of teaching it… I’ve even incorporated that into the class.”

Physics teacher Katie Stapko can also vouch that participating in Comedy Sportz has improved the relationship between teachers and students on campus.

“I think students like to see teachers out there, be willing to take risks, and potentially bomb,” Stapko said. “The students that come to the shows definitely get to see a different side of your personality than they see in class.”

To see some familiar faces work together under bright lights and a crowd for 400, make sure to catch the next scheduled Comedy Sportz game on January 5th.
