ComedySportz Los Angeles turns 30 this year and hosts the ComedySportz World Championship for the first time since 2005. Though you won't find any overpaid athletes or real violence here, the improv comedy competition takes its sports-like rules very seriously: There's a referee, Astroturf, team uniforms and the national anthem. And if the contestants use profanity, they're forced to wear paper bags over their heads. Twenty-five improv teams from all over the country, as well as Manchester, England, perform sets based on suggestions from the audience, which determines the winners. The daily matches all lead up to the last two teams in the final round on Saturday. The prize? Bragging rights and a trophy they call "the Meaningless Cup."
