The annual Celebrity Theatresports challenge pits the country’s brightest comedic minds against each other in an effort to raise money for CanTeen, the organisation that helps young people afflicted by cancer. It is a night full of laughs, celebrities and unexpected events.
“They take experienced theatresport players who are still on the circuit and pair them up with celebrities and in the course of the night we just get thrown challenges,” says comedian and theatresports superstar Adam Spencer.
This year RocKwiz and Eurovision queen Julia Zemiro hosts the show and the all-star line-up is outstanding. They range from sporting personalities such as Matthew Mitcham to actors such as Shari Shebbens, radio personalities, news reporter Angela Bishop and many more.
“What’s really good about it is that the audience is always excited and supportive and especially at a night like this where half the people onstage have never done this before,” says Spencer.
Regardless of whether the audience is laughing at them or with them, Celebrity Theatresports promises to be an eventful night and it’s all for a good cause. (CT)
