OTRi_The Naughty List 2019 logoTHE NAUGHTY LIST
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.

  • Tue-Wed, Dec. 10-11 at 7:30pm
  • Tue-Thu, Dec. 17-19 at 7:30pm
