Fantasy & Live-Action Sports

These are not the traditional sports you're looking for. Some of it is competitive, some of it is just for show, but ALL of it is entertaining. If you’ve ever wanted to watch tough and beautiful roller derby vixens, push, pull, and roll their way to a win, we’ve got it. If you like tumbling, gravity-persuading, brawny men and women in wrestling that work up a sweat for a laugh or a jeer, you will not be disappointed. Fantasy and Potter fans can cheer on the underdog or the champs depending on your preference during our Quidditch matches, or simply become part of the show with spirited swordplay!

Throughout the weekend, the Comicpalooza sports arena will be full of action and fun. Whether you come to see some of it or dive in for all three days, come and experience what you can’t anywhere else in Houston.

Doomsday Wrestling audiences are always laughing, and usually at someone else’s expense. The first to bring together wrestling and comedy, or comedy wrestling, Doomsday was voted “Best Comedy Show” by the Houston Press. Often headliners at venues throughout the city, Doomsday entertains with physical and dramatic storylines that have included invading aliens and killer robots.

Houston Cosmos Quidditch

The Houston Cosmos is comprised of local athletes who may or may not have enjoyed the famous Harry Potter stories from which this game was inspired. It’s almost as much fun to watch as it is to play. Quidditch, in our world of muggles, combines rugby, dodgeball, and tag, with players moving throughout the field on brooms. Sounds simple, right? To further explain, we brought in this graphic from the US Quidditch organization to illustrate how it works. Don’t forget to stop by and see it for yourself.
