We are excited to offer our tickets for sale online. If you visit our TICKETS page you will see that all of our shows are now available to purchase online. We have spend the last couple months getting this purchase process as smooth as possible. First thing you need to know is that your information is absolutely secure. Second, we will not sell your information to any 3rd party, ever. Purchasing tickets online will allow you to receive an instant verification that your reservations was received and that you are secured a seat for the show you want.

There is a slight down side to online purchases. In order to control the cost of selling tickets online, we have to raise our ticket price. All online purchased tickets are now $13 (+tax) and tickets purchased at the door are $14 (+tax). You will notice that during your purchase process we are not tacking on a “transaction” fee that is so common with online purchases, we are doing this in an effort to make the whole process as smooth as possible and to avoid any hidden fees. To help supplement for this price increase, program coupons are going to be worth $3 for both the 7pm and 9pm (instead of $2 previously). We will also be doing a special discount code every week for the next 3 months, so make sure you like us on facebook or follow us on twitter.
Phoenix Labor Day Activities (Comedy Show)
Labor Day Weekend at Jester’Z Improv is a fantastic opportunity to take your family out to some wonderful family friendly entertainment. Labor Day weekend shows will be August 31st & September 1st.
So get out of the heat and enjoy some fantastic comedy!
Or get tickets here.
On Saturday, Sept 1st at 4PM, Former Jester Michael Yichao will be presenting his latest play [gooseplay] at the Jester’Z Scottsdale Theater! In [gooseplay], a boy is turning 10 — and no one’s come to his birthday party. His dad is out of town for work, his friends are at a cooler kid’s party — even his mean older sister is away at soccer camp. Through the play, the boy goes on a journey through time and space, memories and dreams, through hunting trips and supernovas, grapefruit and geese, as he searches for the point of getting older.
The play is family friendly and runs just shy of an hour. Tickets are a suggested donation of $12, and can be purchased ahead of time through Kickstarter [link] or at the door via cash, credit card or paypal. All funds raised will go towards covering the cost of the show, and towards sending the play to various festivals and competitions around the world!
If you have questions, you can find Yichao at myichao(at)gmail.com.
