The improv scene in the Valley is something I really love, so much that I even got into taking classes and eventually became part of the Jester’Z improv troupe in Scottsdale.
This week, I went back to Jester’Z to check out my pal, who had a class show. He’s only in the first level class, but I was so impressed with how well everyone did and am excited to see the growth at their final class show. They’re definitely on the way to becoming great performers and may even make it into the regular troupe.
Jester’Z has shows every Friday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets are $12, and that gets you a 1 1/2 hour show where audience members give suggestions that the troupe takes and turns into short comedic scenes.
Jester’Z is extremely consistent with its shows, providing a steady stream of laughter on any given night. Many of the improvisers are also actors in other media, such as film and television, and the troupe is extremely professional.
Having been a part of it, I know how hard the actors work and how seriously they take the troupe, and I highly recommend Jester’Z as a fun night out. For more info, log on to www.jesterzimprov.com.
