The CHOMPetition is a competitive improv tournament at Identity Lounge.

Starting in September of each year, Queen of Sharks hosts the largest improv bracket tournament ever attempted. Thirty-two teams started performing one-on-one single-elimination, and in June of each year, one team will be named the victor. It is hosted by Queen of Sharks and voting results and statistics can be tracked on their website www.queenofsharks.com.

Origins

The CHOMPetition started from the Queen of Shark's Triple Threat show at Rififi. Also competative, at Rififi the winning team would come back the following week. After Really Good Doctors won Triple Threat ten weeks in a row, a new format was developed. The intention was to produce a ridiculously large tournament that would take the better part of a year to complete, so thirty-two teams were invited making the entire single-illimination bracket tournament a thirty-one week long event plus holiday specials and all-star games.

Trivia

Knifestorm was the only team ever to beat Really Good Doctors at Triple Threat.
