COMEDIANS will go head to head at The Way Theatre in Atherton on Saturday in a night of improvised entertainment.

Two teams will battle it out at the Victoria Mill venue at 7pm in a two-hour programme of rounds which will include quick-witted jokes, games, sketches and songs inspired by the audience.

The show called ComedySportz will include a referee to keep the material clean for the family-friendly show with penalties imposed for bad behaviour and jokes.

ComedySportz is in its 17th year and has been performed across Greater Manchester, in Los Angeles and was recently staged at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Tickets are priced at £8 and £5 for concessions which are available to buy on the door.
