The Theatresports Cranston Cup GRAND FINAL is the annual comedy competition that’s been packing the Enmore since 1985.

Every year, Sydney’s best and funniest impro comedians play off against rival teams to win the coveted Cranston Cup.

Veterans, hot young stars (including the winners of the high schools’ competition) and the funniest ‘Theatresports Fresh’ rookies are currently battling through weekly rounds and tough semi-finals at two venues – The Factory Theatre (Sunday nights) and the Roxbury Hotel (Thursday nights). Using sheer brilliance, meteoric wit and ad-lib genius, they’re up to their necks in the 'FA Cup of comedy'.

And their ultimate stage is the Cranston Cup Grand Final at the Enmore Theatre on Nov 24!

Funnier and more exciting than “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and “Thank God You’re Here!” combined, Theatresports is live, competitive comedy at its most thrilling.

The wildly popular cult comedy show helped launch the careers of Julia Zemiro, Andrew Denton, Jay Laga'aia, Andrew O’Keefe, Rob Carlton, Adam Spencer and plenty more.

Cheer your favourite team! Boo the judges! Shout out suggestions from the audience! And stand up and go wild when a team gets a perfect score for an implausibly brilliant and hilarious scene!

Hosted by Sydney's most celebrated new improviser and comedian Susie Youssef with improvised music AND an awesome opening spectacular!
