The Nerdist Improv School

The Nerdist Improv School is a comedy training facility located in Los Angeles. The School teaches improv, sketch comedy and acting classes, with a focus on comedic timing, writing and self-expression. According to the school’s website, their comedy training focuses on teaching three core principals, including: acting – communicating realism to an audience and living in the moment; subtext – communicating what’s happening underneath a scene; and voice – having the ability and confidence to express yourself on stage.

The Nerdist School is operated by Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist Industries, which began as a podcast and website in 2008, and has since spawned a massive podcast network, a Los Angeles theater, a book, a YouTube channel, a film distribution wing and three TV shows.
