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 based on 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 can 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 in their own careers on the methods they teach. We believe in our students and our community.

The Nerdist School is not just a place to do improv and sketch.

The Nerdist School is where you craft your career.
