We have no more time slots available. Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming interest in ComedySportz!

For those of you signed up, we look forward to meeting you this weekend. To everyone else, you are more than welcomed to come sit standby. It's kinda like the airlines, but I think I'm cuter than the Delta Representative.
