What do saving the world and high school gym class have in common?
That’s the idea behind new ComedySportz show Dodgeball Dungeon, in which volunteers selected from the audience fight monsters with dodgeballs.
Submit your name before the show to be selected to purge the forest of an evil force in a world where dodgeballs are the only weapons.
Then you’ll battle your way through the dungeon, with each room containing a new set of challenges from evil elves to fight, puzzles to solve, and obstacles to navigate.
The longer you stay alive in the dungeon, the stronger you get by earning power-ups after completed quests. But once you die, you’re out and the next volunteer is in.
But nothing can prepare you for the series of jokes and narrative improv you’ll encounter along the way as Dungeons & Dragons is mashed up with Dodgeball.
Luckily, you already got your training out of the way.
