At The Nerdist School, we focus on your voice. What inspires you? What are you passionate about? We want to help you create compelling characters and captivating narratives inspired by your own imagination and rooted in your own dreams and goals. There is no road map, no one-size-fits-all.

Our exercises and pure forms provide you with a set of tools that will serve you for the rest of your creative life. Our classrooms and our stage is not the end, but the beginning — a means to create, inspire, and move forward. Our faculty are professional actors, writers, comedians, producers, directors and creators who lean on the methods they teach in their own careers.

We believe deeply in our students and our community, in their vision and their brilliance. 

The Nerdist School is not just a place to do improv and sketch. The Nerdist School is where you craft your career.
