My home! Absolute joy in this venue and school. ♡ See Storyteller crush on Fridays, and definitely catch HERE the Musical when in town most Saturday nights! The only dedicated space in Columbus for improvisation (and sketch comedy, live lit, and experimental theatre) has 5 shows running now (Storyteller, the Jam, HERE the Musical, Cagematch, Sunday Comics) & will have 5+ additional shows in 2017 (ComedySportz Columbus (all ages show), Dual Duel, The Improvised Musical, a sketch revue, indie teams, and two projects TBA)! Training center is 4-5 levels taught by world-renowned teachers, and electives happen year round. Already featured on NPRs All Things Considered, 614 Magazine, Columbus Underground, Columbus Alive, Experience Columbus, and the Dispatch in the new year... come see what this joy epicenter is all about.
The Nest is a wonderful addition to the improv community of Columbus. The new spot on Broad St is comfortable, clean and fun. I have personally taken the improv program that is offered through level 4 and it was so much fun! I learned a ton. There are a lot of quality and super funny shows. They just acquired their liquor license this month. The beer and wine prices are very reasonable. If you havent been here yet, I highly recommend that you do!
Went on 7/8 for a sportz improv face off. I had no idea what to expect but found myself laughing the entire time. Essentially had "guided" skits that a red team or the blue team would try to out perform one another. Event area has a new space that is still under renovation(but still currently comfortable). Was told they are working on getting licensure for the bar within the next month. Snacks are also available for purchase. Give it a try everyone!
I had an unpleasant improv class here. They tried to run a class with four people. I was only told after it fell apart that I was in a "test" class. I could not make the alternative class fit in my schedule and they have been very slow to give me a refund. Not a super professional operation. It might have been good under better circumstances but I would not recommend it.
After watching HERE: The Improvised Musical Play, it is clear that Tara and Rance are doing exactly what theyre meant to be doing. They made performing without a script look incredibly easy. Their trust in each other, their willingness to lift each other up, their amusement with each other and their playfulness together came through powerfully on stage. Do recommend 10/10.
Was in town for the weekend and stopped by. We went to a ComedySportz show on Saturday night and it was awesome! Crowd and host were very engaged and the preformers did an amazing job. Their venue is very nice (apperantly it is new). The only small thing was that it was slightly difficult to locate. Perfect hole in the wall improv theater!
I took my entire family to the Christmas show and everyone had a wonderful time. This will definitely be a holiday tradition for our family. The Nest offers world class comedy right here in Columbus. Great location, great performers and teachers. For a really fun evening, catch a show of "Here"!
Very funny and entertaining. I would highly recommend seeing a show or taking a class.
Creative and inspiring
