Best Funny Freestylers: OTRimprov

Best Funny Freestylers

Detecting a lack of improvisational comedy downtown, OTRimprov was formed in 2010 by a group of like-minded individuals with hopes of highlighting and further developing Cincinnati’s scene. Currently co-directed by Kat Smith and Dave Powell, it’s proved a success with shows at Below Zero each Saturday, monthly Improv Jams, where improvisers of all experience levels are invited to participate and, perhaps most impressively, the annual IF Festival, an ever-expanding improv fest featuring both local and national acts held at Know Theatre every September. OTRimprov’s cast is becoming legion (26 members and growing); they are also invariably smart, quick-witted and hilarious — the perfect cure for whatever might ail you. OTRimprov, otrimprov.com
