Oz's best-known celebs and comedians gather this August for the "wildest" & "funniest" fundraiser

A line up of Australia’s renowned celebrities and top comedy improvisers will gather at the Enmore Theatre stage on Sunday 5th August for Celebrity Theatresports, a fundraising show for CanTeen.

Without scripts and only audience suggestions to inspire them, the comedy event will see all your favourite stars face insane comedy challenges and have to improvise their way to glory. From Andrew O’Keefe (The Chase Australia, Weekend Sunrise) & Adam Spencer (The Big Questions, Sleek Geeks) singing an impromptu opera to the mimed madness of the Umbilical Brothers, anything can happen and probably will—and all for a great purpose.

Directed by Theatresports legend David Callan, the show also features Olympic gold medallist Matthew Mitcham, Playschool’s Jay Laga’aia, the X-Files’ Dean Haglund, The Checkout’s Zoe Norton Lodge, Axis of Awesome singer & comedian Jordan Raskopoulos, Home & Away star Holly Brisley, stand-up comedy legends Cam Knight and Rebecca DeUnamuno and the stars of Theatresports®.

CanTeen’s mission is to support young cancer patients with whatever they need including counselling, information and the chance to connect with others their age who are in the same boat. Celebrity Theatresports® is an incredible platform to support their amazing work and experience the biggest, brightest and best comedy in town.

If you’ve never seen Theatresports® before, then you really don't know what it's like to be scared scriptless! It’s on-the-spot, seat-of-the-pants comedy, performed at the highest level of skill with miraculous comedy timing. In a series of hilarious games, challenges and comedy skits—from songs and poems to scenes in all kinds of styles—teams compete for audience's laughs and the judges’ scores. It's terrifying, it’s brilliant and it always plays to a sell-out crowd!

Celebrity Theatresports is bound to be the wildest, funniest fundraiser of the year so grab your tickets and prepare to laugh out loud while also being a blessing to people in need!
