Starting this fall, ComedySportz Theatre is inviting football fans to come out and keep the football fever going before and after football games. Each weekend until Nov. 17, the Chicago improv theater is hosting the fans of the two Big Ten schools facing each other on the field to put some comedy into their sports weekend. ComedySportz Theatre will have drink specials themed for the two teams and recognition for their fans in the show.
“If you can’t make it back to campus, the next best thing is to make it to our Lakeview neighborhood, home to official sports bars for each of the Big Ten schools. Watch the game on big screens and then catch some comedy with fellow fans – all within a few blocks,” John Olson of ComedySportz Theatre said.
There's nothing quite like a college football weekend. The game itself is great enough, but it's the whole experience of celebrating with fellow fans and alumni before and after the game that makes it special.
The featured games with coordinating weekends include:
Oct. 18 to Oct. 20: Iowa versus Penn State
Oct. 25 to Oct. 27: Michigan versus Nebraska
Nov. 1 to Nov. 3: Michigan State versus Indiana
Nov. 8 to Nov. 10: Purdue versus Iowa
Nov. 15 to Nov. 17: Wisconsin versus Ohio State
