You can hit, you can field, but can you make them laugh? Working from interviews and questionnaires, Bradsaw (theater, Gonzaga U.) also uses his personal experience with a ComedySportz team in describing the intensive preparation necessary to get players ready for competitive improv comedy. He describes the history of the art form, the workshops conducted to help players develop the timing of trapeze artists and the hides of rhinos, and the fine points of a sport that favors explosive mind games over protective headgear, however handy the latter may be. He includes a list of teams in the Comedy League of America, the games played in ComedySportz, and a sample questionnaire. We were amused. The text is double-spaced.
