EVERY SATURDAY AT 9PM
Battle Royale, Boston’s bold new comedy competition, adds to ImprovBoston’s influence as a leader in Sketch and StandUp comedy. Battle Royale provides sketch teams and local comics throughout Boston a chance to showcase their talent. Battle Royale boasts a high energy, competitive format replete with local celebrity judges promising to engage audiences while supporting up-and-coming comedians.
Alternating between Sketch Battles and StandUp Battles every other week, these 9PM Saturday performances make scripted comedy accessible to all. On Sketch Battle nights, two sketch comedy troupes go head to head for the title of Top Sketch Team. A panel of guest industry judges, along with the audience vote, determines the night’s champions. Battle Royale features a rotating line-up of the best indie sketch teams in Boston. With a similar format, StandUp Battles feature an ever-changing roster of 4 local comics duking it out for the crowning glory.
