December 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 & 28 @ Arnold’s Bar & Grill

It’s a little bit naughty and a little bit nice — but always a lot of fun — and is the only ticket in town guaranteeing you’ll never see the same show twice. OTRimprov (OTRi), transforms the patio at Arnold’s Bar & Grill into a magical world to celebrate, skewer, lament, embellish, and extol everything we love, and love to hate, about the holidays.

Starting from audience suggestions, OTRi’s award-winning improvisers (voted Cincinnati’s Best Improv Troupe 2015, 2016, 2017 Best of Cincinnati, CityBeat) transport you to magical lands and create scenes you’re unlikely to forget. Whether they are rewriting a beloved carol in front of your eyes, showing how Santa should handle unexpected gift requests, or reimagining your favorite holiday stories in magical ways, The Naughty List will fill your holidays with side-splitting laughs. Bring your cheer or your humbug; either way, you’ll help craft the incomparable experience only OTRimprov can provide.

On the traditional attendance at The Naughty List, director Paul Wilson comments,

“Seeing families and friends come back year after year, to have them talk about their favorite moments and what they love about the experience is incredibly satisfying. And the people who discover us each year who tell us how glad they are they found us and how they can’t wait to come back…it makes for a unique Cincinnati holiday tradition we are grateful to be a part of.”

And to delight even more of your senses, host Arnold’s Bar & Grill provides a delectable a la carte menu of dinner, drinks, and dessert for you to enjoy before and during the show. Audience members can arrive up to 90 minutes prior to the 7:30pm start time to feast – but please note that you must arrive no later than 7:00pm to guarantee dinner service. Dinner and drinks are not included in the ticket price. Parties of 5 or more should contact Know Theatre of Cincinnati (513-300-5669) to place seating reservations. All parties are welcome and encouraged to request a reservation time for dinner.

About OTRimprov
OTRimprov (OTRi) began in 2010 as a collection of wayward improvisers looking for like-minded performers and a place to play in Cincinnati. After headlining shows for the Little Big Night at Know Theatre of Cincinnati, we formed our own partnership with Know Theatre’s Jackson Street Market, a resource sharing program for fledgling companies, and began producing shows independently. This continued partnership allows us to call Know’s Underground space on Jackson St. in Over-the-Rhine home.

We continue to explore a variety of styles and formats, while developing a strong improv community populated with smart, engaging people and doing work that is collaborative, curious, and sometimes a little bit daring. We foster new talent through training and a welcoming atmosphere, where all performers feel inspired to explore and take risks.

It’s a little bit naughty and a little bit nice — but always a lot of fun — and is the only ticket in town guaranteeing you’ll never see the same show twice. OTRimprov (OTRi), a long-time member of Know’s resource-sharing Jackson Street Market program and voted Cincinnati’s Best Improv Troupe (2016 Best of Cincinnati, CityBeat) takes over the patio at Arnold’s Bar & Grill for the 5th consecutive year to celebrate, skewer, lament, embellish, and extol everything about the holidays.

Starting from audience suggestions, OTRi’s award-winning improvisors will entertain and delight with games and scenes that change nightly to ensure every show is unique. Whether they are rewriting a beloved carol in front of your eyes, showing how they would handle present requests as Santa, or reimagining your favorite holiday movie in fantastical ways, The Naughty List will fill your holidays with side-splitting laughs. Bring your cheer or your humbug; either way, it’ll help craft the incomparable experience only OTRimprov can provide.
