Improv Comedy Team

BCHS Improv Team

Bishop Chatard’s award-winning Improv Team is one of the most popular extracurricular organizations at Bishop Chatard. Students have a great time while learning important life skills! Besides teaching teamwork and having fun, improvisation develops performance skills that can carry over in many life situations: listening, observing, being in the moment and thinking on your feet.

Improv Team PerformanceThe Improv Team, formerly known as ComedySportz, participates in the ComedySportz High School League which is composed of teams of high school improvisational performers from various schools in the greater Indianapolis area. The teams receive training as individual teams as well as some training with all participating schools together. After training and tryouts through the Fall Semester, ComedySportz matches begin in the Spring Semester.

Bishop Chatard’s Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Tyler Mayer, coaches the Improv Team. If you would like to know more, contact him at

There are 17 students on the 2017-2018 team. Practices are Fridays, 2:15-4:15 p.m. in the Kyle Guyton Theatre (room 102).
