The sport is comedy.

Philly beats Chicago to win world championship

Stanley Cup, Shmanley Cup.

Philly hosted the annual world championship of the improv-comedy show ComedySportz, which brought 20 teams around the glove to World Cafe Live in University City.

The final, Saturday night, pitted the squad from Chicago against the home team.
The Philadelphia roster of veteran improvisers won. Captain Jason Stockdale's team was rounded out by Kelly Jennings, Kelly Vrooman (who hosts Sprout’s The Sunny Side Up Show), and Eoin O’Shea (who performed with Second City on tour and in Second City’s Philadelphia-centric Nutterly Love show last year).
