Portland, OR, USA
CSz Portland, in its 29th season, has played over 5,000 ComedySportz shows and hasn't missed a weekend since May, 1993.  We are unique in the wonderful Portland improv scene in that our players are employees who are paid for every ComedySportz match as well as for teaching public and private workshops. CSz Portland was founded in early 1993 by Ruth Jenkins and Patrick Short, who serve as Club President and General Manager. Ruth and Patrick performed with and managed CSz San Jose for five years prior to moving to Oregon.

ComedySportz® was started in 1984 in Milwaukee, WI, by Dick Chudnow. Expansion began with the addition of Madison, WI, in 1985. The first Comedy League of America National Tournament was held in 1988, with 10 teams participating. CSz Worldwide now has grown to over 25 teams in the US and Europe.

CSz serves our community with a full slate of improv-based shows, an education center with some seriously experienced teachers, an issues-oriented scripted division called Thinking People's Theatre and Applied Improv Training for companies, government units, not-for-profits, NGOs and educational institutions.

It's all connected to our values of collaboration, inspiration, gratitude and fun!
