Dec. 10-19
Arnold’s Bar & Grill [Downtown]

Join Cincinnati’s best improvisers in its oldest bar for the longest running unscripted holiday dinner show in town! For the 8th year in a row, OTRimprov invites you to the historic Arnold’s Bar & Grill to help them celebrate, skewer, lament, embellish, and rhapsodize everything we love – and love to hate – about the holidays.

Using audience suggestions and stories, OTRi’s award-winning improvisers (voted Cincinnati’s Best Improv Troupe in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019 – Best of Cincinnati, CityBeat) keep the wit quick as they make up jokes, play games, and create scenes you’re unlikely to forget. The Naughty List will fill your holidays with side-splitting laughs and help accentuate your cheer or your humbug, whichever is winning out that day.

KTC_The Naughty List promoYou better watch out, because OTRimprov is back at Arnold’s Bar & Grill for our favorite annual tradition–THE NAUGHTY LIST!

Opening Dec. 14 at 7:30 PM, THE NAUGHTY LIST is an improvised comedy event that skewers all your favorite holiday memories. Using suggestions from the audience, OTRimprov presents a completely unscripted show each night that springs off of your love – or disgust – for the Holiday Season.

An annual tradition at Cincinnati’s favorite bar, this year’s show is fully revamped and features brand new games, a rotating cast, and action that is decided by YOU the audience. So bring your holiday cheer or your humbug: You decide!

The courtyard at Arnold’s Bar & Grill is the perfect setting for this raucous and rowdy holiday event, and Arnold’s has prepared a special menu just for the occasion! If you want to enjoy dinner before the show, please arrive between 6 – 6:30pm to be seated and place your dinner orders. The roughly 90 minute show will begin at 7:30pm.

And don’t forget: If you want to make sure you’re seated with friends who got tickets under another order just let us know by calling 513-300-5669 in advance.

THE NAUGHTY LIST is directed by Paul Wilson and features a rotating cast including Mike Hall, Kirk Keevert, Sean Mette, Dave Powell, Charlie Roetting, Dylan Shelton, and Kat Smith.
