ComedySportz Indianapolis will be ringing in 2013 with two special New Year’s Eve shows, which will be held at the Athenaeum Theatre, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Due to popular demand in past years, ComedySportz is expanding their New Year’s celebration to the Athenaeum in order to seat more audience members, or Loyal Fanz, as the improv comedy theatre calls them.  There will be two separate shows: one at 7:30 PM, and the other at 10:30 PM, which ends with a countdown to midnight.  Both shows include the ComedySportz match, hats, noisemakers, and a sparkling cider toast.  A cash bar will also be available.

“We offer a fantastic night out on Mass Ave for everyone,” said Claire Wilcher, Assistant Artistic Director and veteran improviser.  “Date night, families, big groups—they’ll find something to laugh about at ComedySportz.  We invite everyone to come to the Athenaeum and do something different for New Year’s Eve this year – improv comedy!”
